Human Kinetics Hosting Webinar Running for Women
Human Kinetics and Jason Karp, author of Running for Women will present the free hour-long webinar “Running for Women” on Wednesday, February 20 at 2:00 PM Eastern Standard Time.
This webinar is hosted by our partners at Human Kinetics and in conjunction with the Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon, an RRCA IL State Championship Event .
Description: The menstrual cycle is the defining physiological characteristic of females. Coupled with the many anatomical, physiological, hormonal, and metabolic differences between males and females, the menstrual cycle and its constant fluctuation of hormones influence many aspects of a woman’s physiology, including oxygen consumption, body temperature, hydration, bone health, and metabolism, many of which influence females’ response to training. In this insightful webinar, Dr. Jason Karp delves into the science of a woman, discussing her unique physiology and offering recommendations for training to maximize results.
