For this study, we will be assessing running for 30 minutes and completing
a 3-week training program in runners who run at least 10 miles per week
and have been running for no longer than 2 years.
Those interested, who qualify for the study, will be asked to attend two
testing sessions in our research laboratory in the Elma Roane Fieldhouse
on the U of Memphis main campus. The first testing session will take
approximately 90 minutes and participants will be asked to run at a
comfortable (submaximal) self-selected pace on a treadmill for 30min.
During this session we will also assess mobility using two functional
The second testing session will take approximately 60 minutes and subjects
will be asked to run at a comfortable (submaximal) self-selected pace on
a treadmill for 5min, and we will again assess mobility using two
functional tests. As part of the study, participants will also be
provided a 3-week running training program during which the amount of
running will increase progressively each week.
