In January 2018, Nick Wishart will join a handful of runners to take on the World Marathon Challenge. And what a challenge it will be! Seven marathons in seven days across all seven continents. Clearly what makes this running feat so formidable is the consecutive days of travel across the world between marathons. Recovery will be paramount.
Nick is already honing in on his ability to recovery, and he has some great help in his corner to help him continue to improve his resiliency. To name a few; Dr. Mark Cucuzzella, Industrial Revolution CrossFit's coaching staff, and TRUEFORM will be behind Nick has much as possible before his departure to Antarctica. Before he deals with that cold welcome, Nick intends on spending a large portion of his training year on the TrueForm Runner. Nick recently unveiled his newly minted Runner to his gym family in Pawtucket, RI, and is eager to get started with it. ~ photo credit ~ Whitney Parkinson
When asked how the TRUEFORM will impact his training Nick replied, "I never would've spent five minutes on any sort of treadmill until I connected with Brian and Lauren [of TrueForm Runner] and started running on it. Dr. Mark and others have told me that in terms of recovery, efficient running form is as important as proper nutrition and rest." If a runner moves well during the running cycle; energy goes directly towards the primary tasks of attenuating shock and propelling forward without energy going to unnecessary motions or motions that inhibit running. Providing an environment in which running motions that are efficient and inefficient are immediately noticeable is one of the principal purposes of the TRUEFORM. The slight upward curve on the deck of the TRUEFORM cues a user to stay in the sweet spot in order to sustain the milling of tread. This offers users the opportunity to learn kinesthetically on the run (pun intended). An efficient runner has less biomechanical breakdown therefore less recovery is needed.
