The Runners Practical Workshop

There’s more to Running, than just Running! Running has become increasingly popular over the last decade, with more people joining running clubs, entering events & attending Park Run. I believe this to be a great move in the right direction for healthier & fitter lifestyles. However, running can be a high risk activity especially if you increase training load too much (Reference 1) (Gabbett 2016). Increases in load can lead to injuries to muscles (Ref 2), tendons (Ref 3) and joints (Ref 4). Runners can suffer from an injury around 100hrs of running, or 2-3 times a year (Ref 5).

But there’s hope, as we can reduce the risk of injury to allow running to be a positive experience. Strength training plays a very influential role by reducing risk injury unto 50% (Ref 6). There’s nothing worse than a negative run, especially if it’s injury related!

My Runners Practical Workshop will tell you why, when and how you can reduce your risk of injury. You will be able to…

  • Understand the concepts and components of Strength & Conditioning for running
  • Find out why runners should strength train & how to include it in your training
  • Discover how to improve your speed & endurance
  • Learn about myths about running

You’ll not only walk away with new knowledge, you’ll also have new exercises designed for you to keep you running, which will be specific for you. You’ll be able to practice the exercises in the Workshop. Remember, ‘There’s more to Running than just Running’!
