  • Michael Silva MS, PT, CSCS:The lowdown on running injuries

    If you think about it running is taking a very basic movement, putting one foot in front of the other in order to move our body forward and hopefully fast.  Then we are asking our body to repeat that thousands of times during a run.  Some sources say the average runner will take anywhere from 1,000 - 2,000 steps per mile.  The enormous repetion of running makes it a prime cause of repetitive stress injuries (RSI) also know as cumulative trauma disorder and overuse injuries.

  • X-C Runners Beware of the SAT Exam / Divisional Meet Conflict !

    Please plan ahead, because the MIAA State Divisional Championships and the SAT Exam are both scheduled for November 8th. Although the MIAA seems to be an easy target nowadays, they are not to blame for this testing date change. For as long as I can remember, the SAT date has always been the first Saturday in November. This typically collides with our MSTCA Coaches Invitational and it has been widely accepted over the years as a perfect fit. The Coaches meet doesn't offer any team scoring, and the athletes compete by grade. Many coaches take the weekend off from competing, while others utilize it for a final tuneup before the Divisional meet.  It was the perfect situation and it was something we all accepted into our schedules as coaches. It is now added onto the biggest Cross Country saturday of the fall, and I guess we are going to have to accept this as the way it will be for another 40 years.
