Run-Fit Classes and Choosing a Race

I am part of the Brainfood Committee at work, which is a subcommittee of the Workplace Excellence Committee.  My workplace thrives off of meetings and committees, if you can't tell.  Anyway, I put together a Fitness and Nutrition Lunch 'n Learn and brought in Justin Robinson from Rehab United (Physical Therapy & Sports Performance Center) to give a talk. 

He was funny, engaging and he's extremely qualified with all of these letters after his name: MA,RD,CSSD,FAFS,CSCS   <- I have no idea what those mean


What I am most excited about is that I learned there is a Rehab United facility just 3 miles down the street and they offer a Run-Fit class every single week!  I had no idea.


Run-Fit addresses the specific needs of runners: it enhances strength & dynamic flexibility to prevent knee and low-back pain, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, and other injuries. Every session includes running drills to improve form and low-to-moderate intensity plyometrics to increase power and agility.

Run-Fit will make you feel strong and fast for your training runs and races and is ideal for runners of any distance – from 5K’s to marathons.
Run-Fit Class

Have you ever been to a running specific class?
How did you like it? 

Rehab United is where many pro triathletes in San Diego get their fitness and rehab on and I've known about it for quite awhile, I just had no idea how extensive their services are.  In fact, there is a whole article about Rehab United's role in injury prevention on the Triathlete magazine website:


I am excited to try something new that might enhance my training.  I am even considering using a training plan or coaching services through Rehab United for my next marathon -- which will be my "A" Race for 2012.   

Classes at Rehab United

Speaking of "A" Races, I am contemplating running Long Beach or Santa Barbara for a PR.  Boston, unfortunately, is more of a race for the experience rather than the record books.  I want to continue to train post-Boston and increase my speed and endurance before running a killer race somewhere else.  Rock 'n Roll San Diego is in June, but that won't give me enough time to do really well. 

I need your help -- which race should I run? 
Have you run either of these?  Let me know what you think!

  1. SANTA BARBARA!! i did the inaugural race in 2009, and although the course has changed a smidge it is absolutely gorgeous! the first half has you winding through lemon and avocado groves with green mountains alongside then you move toward the coast and finish right along the ocean. having lived there for 4 years i may be biased, but it's a great little town for a mini vacay, too.

  2. I've done the Long Beach Half (it shares the first half pretty much with the marathon). It is flat, but run on a lot of concrete surfaces. I really don't know how it is for a pr race.

    You really want to PR and if you're looking at October, try the St. George Marathon, in Utah, usually the first Saturday in October. That's where my pr is, about seven minutes faster that my second fastest (which was on the old Rock & Roll course).

  3. Despite my miserable performance at LB last year, it is a great race and a very PR-worhty (FLAT) course. Plus I miiiiiiiight be thinking about running it again ;)

    However SBI is great, too - smaller and the course is definitely hillier (rollers and one big climb at 23.5), so depending on what type of elevation you run better on, I'd choose based on that.

  4. I ran the half in Long Beach and I loved it. I signed up for the 2012 already. it is the run racing team and they do a great job.

  5. ohh i wanna go!!! seriously i live in the wrong state, california has all the fun stuff :)

    hmm i would think either race is great...are you noticing a theme if it deals with cali i'm biased.

    ReplyDelete
  6. What a great class. I'd love to find something like that around here. On the races, I'm doing LB this year and hear its a good race. But, SB is way more scenic. I'd probably do that one.

  7. I was looking into possibly doing Long Beach Marathon this year if my body is ready - it has all the things I was looking for in a marathon (mainly flat, in Oct or early Nov, In CA, and the race doesn't sell out ahead of time). Long Beach satisfies all 4 of these things I think. Likely I will end up doing the Fresno Two Cities marathon in early Nov if I'm able, but we'll see what happens.

  8. I ran LB full, it was a great course, very FLAT. They also had plenty of water/GU/etc stations. Plus, the last few tenths of a mile are slightly downhill. It sure helped pushing through wanting to die at the end.

  9. What an awesome program! Can I come to Run Fit with you?!?! I need all the help I can get!!! I don't have any advice on which marathon you should run because I haven't run either of them...heck, I haven't even been to Cali (yet!) but I'm sure you will smoke either one that you choose!!!

  10. That class sounds awesome! I am jealous. I don't know anything about either of those races. Are they Fall races?

    My run was good today and leg is feeling fine now so hopefully I am good to go!

  12. That class sounds so good! I would definitely go!! I basically 'only' run so anything to add strength and prevent injuries sounds cool- plus that class looks fun.

    I once did a Runner's Pilates class. It was really tough! I would go again though, because I have a bit of a weak core.
