RunWise is a program that enables you to safely progress in running and ultimately achieve your goals. Whether it’s to run around the block or complete your first marathon, RunWise can give you the tools and support to help you achieve this.
I’m here to help use my knowledge and expertise as a physiotherapist and a runner (who has experienced many highs and lows!) to provide you with a great base to build your running journey. You already run but have decided to enter a race and need guidance on how to build up your mileage whilst reducing the risks of injury, or you may want to learn a bit more about how you can improve in general.
The main aim of RunWise is to help make sure you maximise the enjoyment you get from what is a great and simple form of exercise.
An important part of the programme will be to find out about you. What are your reasons for running? your goals? what fitness or running do you do already? etc. These things are so important when helping you to implement a realistic plan and there is no one size fits all recipe to help build success.
To measure the progress I will take baseline indicators of strength, flexibility and control, as well as doing a running gait analysis using simple technology to complete an overall picture of the specific areas of focus. These indicators are really just that and if you come from a background of having done nothing then there is nothing to fear, you will be amazed how much they improve over the weeks. I will then give you the practical ideas of how you can work on these.
In the follow-up sessions, we will practice a few of these things and then finally assess your running gait once more and provide you with further feedback as to how you can continue your journey.
I am keen after the course has finished that we keep in contact as much as you wish as it can be really helpful to have someone you can use as a resource if you have any questions. If I don’t know, I’ll always find out the answer! I would absolutely love to be a part of your running journey so please feel free to contact me.
