You don’t have to be a runner to have running goals. For many people, just getting started can be half the battle. Fortunately, Jeff Horowitz, personal trainer at VIDA Fitness U Street, is here to help. To say that Jeff enjoys running would be an understatement — he has completed nearly 200 marathons in his lifetime! If anyone can get you up and running (literally), this is the guy.
Springtime is prime time for road racing, but many runners find that they have been unable to stick to a regular running schedule over the winter. If you are signed up for a spring race, you can still safely get up to speed if you follow these guidelines.
I'm asked this question all the time: is running on the treadmill as good as running outside on the roads? This is more than a fanciful question since many people are training for spring races and want to make sure that they get as much benefit from their training as they expect.
