My client is in great shape and keeps up her runs with a local running club. She works with me twice each week to supplement her running. I’m not able to do vertical jumping as per her chiropractor (was only doing 1-2 sets 1x per week) and single-leg work seems to aggravate an old ankle/calf injury. Basically I can’t do any of the regular things I would do with my runners. Any suggestions?
Based on the information that you provided, it sounds that she is doing her running with her running group, however, you can always work on speed-work and hills on the treadmill as part of her training session. Sometimes, these types of runs are best when in a controlled environment. Also, I highly recommend having her attend cycling classes to improve her overall muscle endurance and improve her base HR. Lastly, as part of your training session, Pilates and yoga type exercises would be best to improve her gait and stride. If there is a combination of all of these workouts, she will have phenomenal success.
