Running is not just about aerobic training. Rowing does not replace running! The musculoskeletal load from running is an essential component to training our bodies to adapt to external forces. Learning the correct running Pose is just as important as having a stable position for an overhead squat. Being able to run well is essential to becoming a complete athlete. Most runners over-stride and therefore expose themselves to an increased risk of injury. If you have had shin splints, knee pain, calf tightness, Achilles soreness or plantar fasciitis, chances are you are over-striding. Using evaluation tools such as video analysis, we can show you your technique faults during this seminar and prescribe specific drills to correct your running form.
This two-day course covers the fundamentals of correct running technique in a lecture setting, with practical application following as participants and coaches practice and perform the Pose Method. Drills and exercises are repeated until the student has an understanding of how to learn and teach running technique safely and effectively to anyone at any level. Flexibility and mobility routines for runners are introduced on the second day of the course. Participants will learn to apply the principles in training themselves and others to increase running-specific strength, agility and perception – all of which improve running performance.
