Start thinking of yourself as an athlete, not just a runner!
Too much running, as an isolated activity, without working equally as much on your muscle balance and core activation, can make you weak and uncoordinated, leave you vulnerable to overuse injuries and hamper your development of good running form too. Many forms of core strength training can help your body adapt effectively to create running efficiency and injury resistance. The Body Learning Camps are monthly special topic workshops that build on what you already do well and challenge you to learn more!
Body Learning 200 – Find Your Foot Posture
This Mini-Camp provides a basic understanding of the general anatomy of the foot, which is extremely helpful in terms of finding your own personal “foot posture” and “neutral ankle” for the greatest range of motion. The result is that your feet can absorb more impact from ground reaction, and store the energy returned to them from the earth on a stride-by-stride basis. This unique ability is evident in many of the renowned African runners, particularly those who grew up running barefoot.
