This year we have hosted two popular running workshops with a twist on our popular “Running without pain” workshop concentrating on marathon training, injury prevention and recovery and increasing your training load.
Thank you to The Run Company for letting us take over your shop for those evenings!
There are some big races in every runner’s diary at this time of year, including the largest local marathon taking place in June and international races coming up in the Autumn. Nothing’s more disappointing than picking up an injury just a few days before the big event, so in this workshop, we took our guests through the top prevention steps everyone needs to know to prevent injury, helping you spend more time on the road and less in rehab.
We covered everything from overtraining to optimum performance tips as well as advice on the all-important recovery period, and an opportunity to speak to Philippa, Acorn Healths principle Chiropractor, one-on-one after the event for any specific questions or advice.
We had an Ultra-marathoner and a Tough Mudder runner who had specific questions on nutrition and keeping up their energy levels. We also talked to a few ladies who are looking to improve their stride to reduce expelling unnecessary energy, and a 10K runner interested in injury prevention. We also had a lady interested in increasing her walking to running without causing serious injury and a gentleman looking for information on running winter marathons.
Our events are never a dull affair, and all are encouraged to get involved and ask questions throughout the talk. We left the first event thinking about stocking up on jaffa cakes and jelly beans and the last one thinking about taking a nap! If you are interested in coming to one of our events please subscribe to Facebook events here or sign up to our newsletters here.
Book in for your pre-race MOT appointment here so we can get those backs mobilised, ribs moving freely to increase your lung expansion and thus your muscle moment and improve your hip flexion and extension for a better stride.
Your body is an intricate machine and just like any machine, things can go wrong from time to time. If you are in pain, it’s your body’s way of telling you that something isn’t right. Listen to it.
