09 Oct NYC Marathon Training and Recovery
In less than one month New York City will be filled with over 50,000 runners. Prepped and ready to run 26.2 miles. The race is held annually on the first Sunday of November and includes over 50,000 runners, from the world’s top professional athletes to runners of all ages and abilities, including over 9,000 charity runners. Participants from over 125 countries tour the diverse neighborhoods of New York City’s five boroughs: Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Manhattan. For many, tackling a marathon is lifelong achievement and goal. And Cryo wants be there for all of your training and recovery needs.
A great plan will include four different things: a build-up to a long run that’s at least 20 miles, a rest day following that long run, cross-training, and a pre-race taper. Most marathon training plans range from 12 to 20 weeks. During these weeks your body is being pushed and tested and your recovery during your training process and just as important as your post-race recovery. This is where CryoEmpire is here to help!
To regain strength in your legs and help them heal we have The NormaTec Leg Recovery Boots These consist of overlapping zones that provide gapless compression. They also feature no-fuss integrated tubing, high-quality materials, and custom-molding to the particular shape of your body.
How it Works
Using patented NormaTec PULSE technology, this leg recovery system ensures rehabilitation sooner between training. The inflatable leg-sleeve targets five different zones from your feet to your hips, while compressing and pulsing to increase blood flow. The dynamic pulsing moves upward to enhance the flow of metabolites and fluid out of your limbs, which relieves aches and pains. Additionally, the compressor is adjustable to your particular needs, giving you control of the amount of pressure being applied during the session.
NormaTec Leg Recovery Boots can be found in practice centers of most professional sports teams across the United States.
Bad knees or sore muscles? For more targeted treatment try Local/Targeted-Cryotherapy.
Different from full-body Cryotherapy, local Cryo treatments can be applied to any part of your face or body for the targeted results. Wherever you are experiencing soreness, the cooled air penetrates deeper into the specified area, allowing swift muscle recovery. For specific injuries and post-surgical recoveries, we recommend a combination of full body Cryotherapy and local Cryotherapy sessions in order to achieve maximum results.
Congratulations! You’ve crossed the finish line.
Now, let’s be honest—once you’ve finished the marathon, you just want to celebrate your accomplishment and be done. According to JENNY HADFIELD, a writer for Runners World, you should Just Keep Walking. Hadfield explained,
“Think about it: You’ve just asked your body to run 26.2 miles. It’s still in marathon mode when you finish and greatly needs to transition back to normal life. By walking, your heart rate gradually drops, the circulation diverts back to its resting state and flushes lactic acid from the muscles. Walk at least 10 to 15 minutes—back to your car.”
