Fall Marathons are Approaching — Training Tips Thanks to NYRR
A graduate of Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Jennifer Heiner holds a bachelor of arts in marketing and economics. Since 2019, Jennifer Heiner has served as the retail director of a New Jersey running company. For many people, one of the greatest appeals of running is its simplicity. Recreational running requires no fancy equipment or extensive training, just a good pair of shoes.
In her various posts and blogs, including on Medium, Jennifer Heiner-Pisano has explored different ways to aid in running and injury prevention.
Marathon training, however, does require a bit more than the newest running shoes. Regardless of whether one is coming back from an injury or not, strength training, and understanding your body mechanics, is so important to ensure that your body is working efficiently. This not only helps prevents injuries going forward but can increase performance levels as well.
Jennifer Heiner volunteers with New York Road Runners, who produce the most famous and biggest marathon in the world, the New York City Marathon, every first Sunday in November. Strava is also a great training tool for runners, swimmers, and triathletes alike, where one can record and post their activities to keep track of their training progress and to share their improvements with friends and followers.
