Pop-Up Recovery Lab at Running Lab!
The celebration event will offer a 0-3 mile recovery run/walk, brunch and specialty recovery tools for post-goal race recovery or pre-race pampering! This free event is also a great opportunity to learn about our new charity partner, Ainsley's Angels in Michigan. They'll be setup at the store during the event and we'll have a donation jar out for accepting contributions to this amazing group.
The Pop Up Recovery Lab provided by Advanced Physical Therapy Center will provide the following services to help you recover more rapidly after your marathon or 1/2 marathon:
The NormaTec PULSE Recovery Boots provide dynamic compression & massage to help athletes recover faster between trainings and after performance. They use compressed air to massage your limbs, mobilize fluid, and speed recovery with our patented NormaTec Pulse Massage Pattern. We have two pair of the NormaTec Boots so you and a buddy can recline & relax letting the system rejuvenate your legs and allow for faster recovery. This is perfect to repair the legs post race, or to prep the legs for upcoming work! (This station will be donation-based to benefit Ainsley's Angels!)
The HyperIce Raptor with mobilization & stretching station provides a far superior method of elongating the tight muscles from your marathon effort the day before. When stiffness sets in and stretching seems impossible, be prepared to be amazed at how good you will feel, move and walk after the vibration therapy and hands-on stretching from your PT recovery specialist.
RockTape turns down the volume on pain! Decompresses an area of swelling and inflammation, delays fatigue, normalizes muscle tone, and distributes physical stress.
Generation UCAN is a high quality, slow burning carbohydrate that keeps your blood sugar stable, providing steady consistent energy. We will have power foods cooked with Generation UCAN's Superstarch to help power you through your recovery.
Hyperice percussion therapy rollers combine the benefits of foam rolling with percussion therapy to increase circulation, loosen the muscles and improve performance before and after activity. We have Vyper 2.0 and Hypersphere available to demo during the event.
