Event description

Description

There is increasing evidence to support the importance of doing strength and resistance training if you're a runner. If you're serious about increasing your distances, reducing your time and preventing injuries that stop you running longer term, strength and resistance training is crucial!

Why is strength and resistance training important for runners?

  • It improves running economy, increasing efficiency of oxygen and energy demand
  • It increases your power
  • It will decrease your injury risk
  • It will increase your strength endurance
  • It will increases your muscle and tendon's ability to manage the load demands placed upon it

The most common areas of weakness in runners are:

  • Calf
  • Hamstrings
  • Glutes
  • Quads

This is not to say that runners have weakness in all of these muscles, but it is common to have a weakness or imbalance in any 1 or combination of these areas. All of which can be addressed through strength training.

If you'd like to learn more about incorportaing strength and conditioning into your running training schedule, then come and join us for a 1 hour practical workshop with our Sports Therapist, Francesca.

This 1 hour, practical session will help you:

  • Understand the importance of S&C for runners
  • Learn some key S&C exercises that you can add to your routine
  • Tackle any injury questions or concerns you may have through Q&As

All equipment is provided. It is a practical workshop, so please wear something comfortable and trainers that you can exercsie in.
