Running Technique: Introduction
Shouldn’t we already know how to run?
Running is a movement skill that can be learned just like learning to play tennis or golf but is very rarely taught.
Poor technique and lack of knowledge combined with previous injuries, muscle weaknesses or movement restrictions can lead to inefficient running. This often leads to injury or inefficient technique so that a runner struggles to reach their speed or distance goals and fulfill their potential.
With the right movement and coaching everyone can achieve their goals, move well and enjoy running pain free.
The Running School
I have trained with expert in running, speed development and rehabilitation and one of the worlds leading running coaches, Mike Antoniades at The Running School.
I am a Certified Run Technique Specialist and I use the running re-education techniques developed by The Running School to help runners of all levels improve their movement.
We start with a Functional Movement Assessment and Biomechanical Analysis of your running using cameras and video analysis. This helps to identify weaknesses, risk of injuries, postural issues and current movement patterns that maybe holding you back or causing pain.
Regardless of your level we start by helping you to change movement patterns and learn efficient running technique. We do a lot of our coaching indoors on a treadmill as it provides a powerful learning and coaching environment. Lessons include a mixture of short sections of running combined with exercises to help learn new movement patterns and address weaknesses.
We work with:
- People who have never run before
- Injured runners
- Runners who want to get faster or run further
- Fast runners and slow runners
- Age group triathletes and good for age runners
- Ultra runners
- Runners aged 16-70+
