How runners can maintain a healthy immune system with Dr. Josh Emdur, D.O.
Today, Dr. Josh Emdur joined us to discuss how runners can maintain a healthy immune system. * Running helps but running does not guarantee that you have a great immune system. * It is important to have a balanced approach to your training during this time period. Moderate exercise has been proven to help your immune system. Your immune system may be at risk if you are sustaining excess training loads. * Stress is stress. Stress can be physical or mental. You have to balance the physical stress from running against the stress from your daily life if you are trying to maintain a healthy immune system. * If you are trying to figure out the right balance of intensity and volume, here is a good rule of thumb: you should always finish a run feeling better than when you felt when you started. * It is important to have a tool like heart rate or Stryd to quantify how hard you are training so you can ensure you are running easy. * and more! If you would like to follow Dr. Emd…

Episode 5: 12 Reasons a Power Meter Makes You a Better Runner
Welcome to the 5th episode of the Stryd Power Podcast! This episode covers 12 reasons that a running power meter makes you a better runner. The inspiration for this episode comes from Run with Power by Jim Vance. "In the history of running technology, a stopwatch is probably equivalent to using a typewriter—pretty good at its job, but severely limited in scope. Running’s step up to heart rate monitors was a revelation, but in retrospect, it was like moving from the typewriter to what we would now regard as an old, heavy, slow desktop computer. Today’s GPS wrist units are like the first cellphones, much like a flip-phone. The portable power meter for running is the next step, equivalent to the laptop, tablet, and smartphone coming into existence all at once. And while you can still accomplish a lot with a desktop computer, you likely will be much more effective in many ways if you add the laptop, tablet, and smartphone to your arsenal. This is what the power meter brings to t…
