Running Series: Tips for Becoming a Better Runner

Running Series: Tips for Becoming a Better Runner

Baudry Therapy Center and BRIO have recently partnered with The New Orleans Track Club to promote overall health and fitness through running and walking.  In an effort to help you strengthen your body and improve your overall fitness, we are resurrecting our Running Series.   Over the next several months, we will examine strength and mobility as it pertains to running and the runner’s body – building a stronger foot, calves, hip, core, etc.

Our goal is to help you build a better running machine by working from the ground up. Each blog will target a specific body part and include a weekly exercise challenge.

Optimizing your strength and mobility through these exercises will increase your ability to enjoy healthy running for years to come.

Trivia Contest, co-hosted by Baudry Therapy/BRIO and NOTC

Stayed tuned as we begin with our 4-week series on the foot and ankle!  But we thought we’d kick it up a notch! This won’t be just a regular blog series. You have to get involved!  We’re turning it into a Trivia contest with cool prizes.  After each 4-part series, we will post a short, 3 question poll asking specifics about the last blog posts. Email the correct answers to us within the deadline and a winner will be drawn to receive a free entry to the next NOTC race, along with cool BRIO swag! So keep reading the blog posts and get ready for some trivia!

As always we welcome any comments. For more information on running, run training and running performance, like us on Facebook , follow us on Twitter, or contact our office.

How to Achieve Your Goals

 8 Steps to Achieve Your Goals

How to Achieve Your GoalsWe all have different dreams and aspirations in life.  Some people strive to climb the corporate ladder, whereas others would rather climb Mount Everest.  And there are others whose dream is simply to be able to walk or run with no pain. Whatever your dreams might be, here are 8 simple steps to help you achieve your goals.

At first glance, they look pretty simple.  The hardest step is deciding what your goals are and writing them down on paper.   You have to want them and believe that you can achieve your goals.

Once they are down on paper, split them up into manageable milestones.  Ensure that you review your timeline and know when those milestones fall so you can track your success along the way.

Now comes the hard part – time to execute, to do them!  You may fail at first, but don’t give up.  Don’t let your dreams fall by the wayside. Your goals may just be an essential part to building and living a life you love.  We are rooting for you!
