This is a question that I hope someone might ask when I talk about my running courses but perhaps people are just too polite…
And the answer is simply yes. However anyone who runs or has run, or has even watched people out for a run knows that it it seems to look hard work, painful even. And don't runners get bad knees?
So while the answer is simply yes, there are often ways that we can interfere with our running and even worse we don't even know that we are doing it! We only know when we get injured or just find running really hard work.
So just like we might take lessons to learn to play the guitar why not take lessons to learn how to run. My courses are not about working harder, building muscle or training more there are plenty of courses, coaches and trainers out there who will offer that. What I offer is a way of getting out the way of movement patterns, ideas and beliefs that are interfering with you getting the best out of your running.
So if you want to learn how to Run Well then join me for one of my Running Well courses where we will explore how to take the brakes off and simply run.
