Running Workshop
Series 2018

Running Workshop - Series 2018

With the warm weather and race season on the way, now is the perfect time to have your run technique assessed and learn how to include specific drills and interval training into your running sessions. Join our experienced Physio's at Flex (who are runners themselves) for three key sessions to give yourself a head start to your season.

Numbers are limited to 12 people per session to allow for individualised attention and feedback, so first in best dressed!

Session 1: Run technique and drills

  • Our Physio's will run with you, analyse your technique, and give you one or two key technique tips with the aim to improve your running form, efficiency and assist with injury prevention.
  • Get tips on how to implement these changes and make your improvements last.
  • Learn relevant running drills to facilitate your new and improved running style.

Date: Thursday 16th August 5.45pm
Location: The Tan, Horseshoe/Clock

Session 2: Strength and Flexibility

Join us at the Flex Clinic for tips and tricks on:

  • How to use your foam roller and spikey ball for recovery, maintenance and injury prevention.
  • Key running specific gluteal strength exercises that can help to maximise your performance, running strength and prevent injury.

Date: Thursday 30th August 6.30pm
Location: Flex Sports Physiotherapy

Session 3: Technique review and hill reps

Follow up technique review from the initial session and check in on your progress.

  • Build on these changes with further technique cues/corrections from our Physio's.
  • Then hill reps here we come! Running hill reps not only helps to build strength, but it demands efficiency and a shorter stride length, promoting better running form overall.
  • If you didn't make the first running technique session - feel free to still join for this one!

Date: Tuesday 11th September 5.45pm
Location: The Tan, Horseshoe/Clock

Who are these sessions for?

  • Everyone who runs! From those starting out with couch to 5km to seasoned runners - we all have improvements to make by refining our technique. The sessions will cater for all abilities by modifying distance and reps.

Cost

  • Ideally attend all three sessions for maximum benefit AND at a reduced overall cost of $50.
  • Single session attendance at $20

Presenters

  • Ni'ia Jones: Physiotherapist, Clinical Pilates Instructor, Middle distance runner
  • Karen Shaw: Physiotherapist, Clinical Pilates Instructor, Long distance triathlete
