The majority of running related injuries are the consequence of doing too much, too soon, using inappropriate intensity and/or frequency. Running is not bad for you but going about it the wrong way can be! The most important factor to help you achieve your goals and reduce risk of injury is therefore planning, so whether you are taking up running for the first time or preparing for a 5km, 10km, 10 mile, half marathon or marathon PB, race preparation is key, and that’s exactly where we can help!
Most runners report huge benefits from doing one of our popular ‘Runner’s MOT‘. By giving us the opportunity to assess your biomechanics & running form including a full body a video gait analysis in our exclusive StrideUK Gait Lab, the MOT allows us to really pinpoint what your body needs, leading to the creation of a very specific 12 week training plan.
By evaluating your current level of fitness, discussing your goals and formulating a suitable target race time, we will create you a 12 week online training plan (16 weeks for a half marathon or marathon). We will check the plan weekly and add/ modify training sessions as and when applicable. You are welcome to submit your running sessions via Garmin, Strava, etc. so we can assess your progress.
Research shows that to achieve goals and remain injury free, runners can really benefit from adding a couple of ancillary strength & conditioning sessions to their week. But which exercises does your body need? How many reps and sets? We will provide you with a supplementary plan that integrates it into your weekly run sessions.
Should you wish, we provide indoor strength & conditioning sessions in our matted rehab & weights area, as and when you wish. This is a very popular add-on for runners who know that that will not be able to do their strength work at home due to limited space or danger of distraction.
By joining you on your actual running sessions, we get a valuable chance to see how you are running in the real world and advise you on tweaks to help reduce injury risk and improve performance. We can also make sure you are working at a suitable level!
