Community Conversation with Kevin Vandi - The Running Blueprint - Zoom
Join Rediscovered Books Community Conversation with author Kevin Vandi and Bandanna Running owners, Rich and Shannon Harris.
If you’re stuck in a pattern of injury - rest - run - repeat, it doesn’t have to be that way.
Injuries don’t have to be an inevitable part of running, and pain isn’t a given for the sport.
All you need is a stable foundation and a lot of dedication. A stable foundation is more than just miles, though. A strong running foundation is rooted in biomechanics and reinforced through deliberate practice. It’s the product of work and focus, and it’s the cornerstone for a long, pain-free running career. With the right foundation, you can run more miles and faster miles, and experience the freedom that comes with truly optimal running.
The Running Blueprint is the equivalent of bringing a running expert with you on all of your workouts. Dr. Kevin Vandi has taken the latest in running science and more than a decade of clinical experience and condensed it into an accessible, digestible, data-backed program to optimize your running.
This book won’t just give you workouts, or tell you what paces to run, or how many miles will make you faster. Instead, you’ll gain the tools to meaningfully change your running, leave pain behind, and break through plateaus to reach peak performance.
Dr. Vandi is considered a leader in the field of sports medicine, biomechanics, rehabilitation, and human performance. He is also the founder of Competitive EDGE; the Bay Area's first fully equipped outpatient human gait and performance center. Using state-of-the-art motion analysis technology, and his background as a specialist in physical therapy, orthopedics, and biomechanics, Kevin helps athlete's and individuals of all skill levels improve movement and optimize performance.
Through his career, Kevin has worked with youth and professional athletes. He is currently the team physical therapist for the San Jose Earthquakes providing rehabilitation, injury prevention, and return to play testing. He is also involved with the development of youth and adolescent soccer dynamic warm-up and strength training programs to decrease ACL injury risk.
Dr. Vandi is on the forefront on evidence based objective rehabilitation. Using force plates, 3D motion sensors, high speed cameras, and wireless EMG muscle biofeedback; Kevin harnesses the power of data in decisions about health, recovery, and sports performance.
Bandanna Running has been a longtime supporter of the YMCA Team Idaho Running Club. All donations from this event will benefit the YMCA Team Idaho Running Club.
YMCA Team Idaho Running Club gives youth, who would like to improve their abilities, an opportunity to train with others in the area, and get coaching that will help them reach their goals beyond the regular season. Participants in this program have fun, work with great coaches and mentors, and meet new friends from other schools and states. They will also learn about weight training, experience being part of a team, stay in shape, travel, and achieve their goals!
