Description: To enjoy your running you need to sustain a resilient, flexible and fit body AND a good mental approach to this. Overtraining, over-racing and a resistance to making changes we often run ourselves to injury. This day is about taking a look at ourselves as runners and how we attend to our bodies and support ourselves to injury free running. A combination of indoor and outdoor sessions with three specialists, the day aims to make you more aware of the joy of running and the importance of balancing and supporting yourself to enhance a continued enjoyment of running.
A central session of the day with be taken by a physiotherapist with a speciality in injury free running. The day includes a trail run which is specifically honed for differing running abilities. We will look at cross fit training. There will be a yoga class with an Iyengar yoga teacher who specialises in runners and it’s fantastic for stretches. Via a presentation, we look at mental approach and unhelpful pitfalls that we are all pulled towards. The day is a combination of indoor and outdoor sessions and the aim of the day is getting you to think more ‘holistically’ about your body.
Please note: This is a day for men and women and for ALL running abilities. It is a non-competitive day and you work at your chosen level.
Specialists in their chosen field take each session.
You’ll find a relaxed but focused atmosphere, happy positive challenge and the chance to meet and make new friends. It’s fun, interesting and it should ultimately improve your running.
