Running Made Easy Part 1: Developing your Fitness and Supporting Your Running
During the Part 1 series of workshops, we will look at the importance of each module in putting a session together and also as a standalone training workout. In both cases, the process is ensuring we are better prepared to avoid injury and to run better by improving movement patterns.

  • 5th November – The Importance and Role of Strength and Mobility
    Strength & mobility are key to good running and to help keep yourself injury free. We will look at key exercises to help develop your strength, and to improve your mobility.  We will cover how and when to fit these into the running session or as a standalone workout.  This session will be part inside and down at the Olympic Legacy Park.
  • 12th November – Running Technique for every Runner.
    Good technique can make all the difference to your running.   We will go through some key technique tips and drills plus pointers on how to run uphill easier – just a little important in Sheffield!
  • 26th November – Speed Development, including bringing the above together to form a comprehensive and effective speed workout.
    Speed isn’t always a flat out effort! We will look at how to develop speed, what this can look like on the track and do a session that will show you how to determine what speed you should be running at for the reps.

Running Made Easy Part 2: Training Planning
Part 2 brings everything together so that you can begin the process of developing your own training plan for success.  These workshops will be mostly indoors, although we will be heading outdoors to capitalise on the development from Part 1.

  • 14th January – Goal Setting.
    Events goals are one thing, yet what are the fitness components you need for the event? We will explore both and look at how to prioritise the components of fitness from Part 1.
  • 28th January – Heart Rate Training.
    The benefits of heart rate training explained, plus effective ways to work out your training zones.
  • 11th February – Training Planning
    So how do we pull all this information together into an effective Training Plan? We will look at what a training week can look like, when to put in speed & strength sessions, how to periodise your training and what key sessions to include for your goals.  In doing so we will explain straightforward steps to success.

The cost is £25 per session, £65 per Part (1 or 2), or £120 for both parts.
Numbers are strictly limited to 12 people per session.
