Staff Training Tips
Recovery Runs: The day after a hard workout or race make sure you listen to your body. Your muscles will be sore and need an easy distance run both to remove the lactic acid and to help deal with the soreness left over from the race.
Log: A record of your training and running that helps you stay motivated, monitor your progress and spot trends in your running.
A great training Log that has running forums to discuss training, racing and more.
Tempo Runs: A type of workout to improve the lactate threshold; usually consists of 15-30 minutes of running at the lactate threshold speed.

It's not uncommon to see Rhode Runner staffers out on the roads, living their work. Less common, but not unheard of, is to see them running races in full tutu regalia. That's because the same guys who take your feet very seriously also know how to have fun with the sport. When you come in, be prepared to take a whirl on the in-store treadmill, put there for careful evaluation of your running behaviors. In addition to high-performance brands including Brooks, Saucony, Nike, Asics and New Balance, they also stock quality running accessories and equipment (although at last check, no moisture-wicking tutus).
