Builds on what you already do well
I’ll study the limits of your movement patterns closely and give you accurate feedback and encouragement.
We’ll employ imaginative mobility and stability tests, corrective exercises, and frame-by-frame videotape so you can experience exactly how your running form influences your body, and how the body influences your running form.
Challenges you to work on your own
We’ll use attention-demanding challenges that teach you how to make spontaneous alterations in your stride pattern, change paces and terrain, and play with rhythms and ground contact time – all running skills that give you a mechanical advantage and reduce your risk of overuse injury by breaking up the repetition of the same motions. You’ll also receive specific pacing guidelines so you understand exactly how to use the techniques effectively during your daily workouts, and why they’re important.
I ask that you save your daily workout for the session and wear your running clothes, including warm-ups. You should also bring writing materials in case you want to jot down any specific cues or points of focus that resonate with you immediately after the workout.
When & where
Ideally, we’ll meet weekly (or biweekly) at a convenient road, track or trailhead, agreed upon in advance, here in Boulder County. I love to teach in beautiful places! As we progress, be ready to explore a new open space, mountain park or other scenic running venues.
