Cape Cod Rehab has signed on as a Cape Cod Marathon sponsor.  Not only will you see us around race weekend but our trainers, coaches and physical therapists will be providing weekly training tips on the Mashpee Fitness blog leading up to the race beginning next weekthe week of July 11th.  Some topics will include: training in the heat, incorporating hills into your running, recovery techniques, dealing with injuries, kinesiotaping, etc.  Bookmark and follow Cape Cod Marathon & Cape Cod Rehab on Facebook to never miss a weekly training tip!

Also new for the 2016 race, Mashpee Fitness trainer & RRCA Certified Running Coach Jen Skiba will be providing training plans free for runners.  The 16-week marathon training plans were just released this weekend and training will begin on July 11th while the 12-week half marathon training plans will be released in a couple weeks—training begins August 8th.  You can access these training plans from the homepage on the Cape Cod Marathon website:

A good rule of thumb to prevent injury is to find a training plan where Week 1 matches the mileage you are currently running.  Coach Jen put together Level 1 and Level 2 training plans.  If these don’t work for you and you’re looking for a more personalized plan based on your abilities and goals, contact Coach Jen at
