Many of my clients are runners – aspiring marathoners to sub-40 minute 10k people…. What do they have in common?
The one thing they have in common is a tendency to not warm up thoroughly enough thus picking up lower leg injuries. Of course, its not just about a lack of warm-up. It goes much deeper into their running technique and their individual bio-mechanics.
Man was born to run – as I have stated before – we evolved with an innate ability to run, either to hunt or to evade danger – the classic ‘Fight or Flight” (I know in some cases the brain just Freezes….we’ll set that aside for now)
However, the majority of runners pounding the streets of Great Britain today are doing so in well cushioned footwear and with a stride that doesn’t really pay true homage to our great evolution as runners over the last 200,000 years. Its for this reason that I am currently writing a new Running Development programme to help both existing and new clients with running technique and with an objective of making running:

Watch this space its coming soon, drills, videos, articles, maybe a forum, definitely some live events and sessions using the magnificent Bebington Oval – Mid-March launch date
