Resilient Runner Workshop

FAQs

Who is the workshop for?

The resilient Runner workshop is for runners of almost all abilities. Whether you have recently graduated from a Couch to 5k course or have been running for many years, the workshop has been designed to give you the tools to reduce your risk of injury, increase your speed and enjoy running the way you want to. 

What is the format of the workshop?

The aim of the workshop is to help you change how you think about running by providing an environment where you can use group discussion and physical practice. The format overview is:

  • Introduction
  • Running injuries
    • Why we get injured
    • How we can reduce the risk and build resilience
  • Designing a warm up
  • Lunch
  • Running technique and form
    • Small changes = large improvements
    • Where to start and what to start with
  • Becoming a smarter runner
    • Essentials of session planning
    • Preparing our body for technique change
    • Moving better
  • Summary and finish

There will be two or three short breaks throughout the day as well as lunch.

We encourage you to work in groups and have lots of fun!

We will be doing exercises and demonstrations inside the venue.

We will be going outside for two 15 to 20 minute sessions where we will be looking at and performing warm ups and technique change (gait training).

I'm worried about the running bit... will I get left behind?

There are two outside segments, each is around 20 minutes and they do involve some running. However…

We set up a small square course on a playing field that is only 50 metres on each side, so you will definitely not get left behind.

Most of the running is done as part of learning about the warm up, the drills and technique. All running only lasts for a few minutes at a time, but has been designed to teach you best practice and get you thinking about how you run and how you can improve your running.

When and where is the next workshop?

The next workshop is on Saturday 16th November 2019.

The workshop starts at 11:00 and finished at 17:00.

The venue is the Bourne Academy, Hadow Road, Bournemouth. BH10 5HS.

This venue is great because we have both an inside classroom space and a playing field that we can use for the outdoor segments.

There is also plenty of free parking.

Why is the workshop all day?

The workshop starts at 11:00 and finished at 17:00.

Because we wanted to provide you with both a theory and practical element throught the workshop, reducing the time of the workshop would also reduce its quality and usefullness.

From what our previous attendees have told us, the day flies by and you leave the workshop with a much more complete picture of how to improve your running than if we crammed everything into just 2 or 3 hours.

Your long-term running health is more important to us than showing you some quick “tips & tricks” that will quite frankly lead you to frustration and potential injury.
