Here we go! We have officially begun our 20 week countdown to B2V 2020! Regardless of your current fitness level, we have plenty of time to gradually progress and reach our goals safely and without injury. Just like in previous years, my personal goal is to give you the knowledge and the tools needed to make that happen. It will be up to each of you to determine your own level of CONSISTENCY and DEDICATION. Hopefully though, we share the same aspirations of defending our Championship Title and earning another Top Podium spot!

Warming Up before a workout or race: Stretching is important, but never stretch cold muscles. Before you begin any stretching or warm-up routine, it is imperative that you run at least 1-2 miles to warm-up your muscles before a hard effort (i.e. H.I.I.T. workouts, Time-Trials, 5K/10K races).
Maybe you've heard that stretching before a run is a big mistake. Indeed, studies show that static stretching—holding a muscle in an elongated, fixed position for 30 seconds or more—could hurt performance if done before a workout (save it for after your run). However, DYNAMIC STRETCHING uses controlled leg movements to improve range of motion and loosens up muscles. It also increases heart rate, body temperature, and blood flow to help you run more efficiently.
