What is your formula? What are the common classes or recovery elements this member does/uses? I love Tread and Train classes. Running/interval training and strength training is a great combination to improve your running form and endurance. My formula is 4-5 classes per week and some work outdoors. I love the infrared sauna and cryotherapy, both are really great experiences to supplement training and recovery.
Why did you start running? I started running when playing group sports and needing to stay in shape, but it’s grown into an important skill that I appreciate my body allowing me to do.
