At 61 years old , Cida is entering her 4th season as a participant in the Susan G. Koman For The Cure 3 day walk . This Brazilian born ball of energy has been involved in athletics since her youth , participating in table tennis on a world class level .
When knee pain threatened to sideline Cida’s efforts , we created a plan . After 6 weeks of Neuro training (accompanied by physical therapy) , she was itching to get started on the Meta , and Performance stages . With only 5 weeks remaining , we moved from the clinic , to the road , and finally to “The Damn Dam” . By progressing gradually , Cida’s motor skills developed at the same rate as her endurance and musculature . This approach allowed for continuous training without injury , as well as several metabolic benefits (reduced body fat , quicker recovery , etc.).
Expect to see her at Run/Fit clinics in the future , as she will continue her cancer fighting efforts as a member of TEAM wehatelarry , in the Rock n Roll 1/2 Marathon .
Together , WE CAN !
