Rockstar: Claudia Coronado
So proud of Claudia for completing her Mexico City 13.1. This is a challenging course at altitude and with hills. We first had to overcome some strength and injury setbacks. Runner’s knee (a common running injury) came up in training, which can happen when the volume of running is ramped up too quickly without the proper leg and core strength.
We backed off of training volume a few weeks, and implemented my Strength and Mobility Essentials strength training protocol for running, as well as video analysis to fine-tune her running technique.
This, combined with increasing her calories from quality nutrition in training and racing helped her achieve the goal of completing the race!!
Way to go, Claudia! You are a Rockstar Runner- Now let’s get that sprint tri in before the end of 2023! You got this!
