Strength and Conditioning for Runners - December 2019 | Coed y Brenin Forest Park | Sunday, 01. December 2019

As part of the Run Coed y Brenin Trail School offer for 2019 we have our fourth edition of the excellent Strength and Conditioning Course specifically for runners!
Local Sports Therapists Cerys Symonds (Bodywyrcs) and Katie Cole (no-mad running) will be sharing their knowledge and advice to help you to keep your body feeling strong and conditioned for running through the year and beyond.
We will take you through a range of practical exercises, based on current best practice in strength and conditioning, as well as offering hints and tips on running technique and what to do pre- and post-run to have the best chance at avoiding injury.
The course will be broken into 3 sections:
Section 1 - Strength for Running: No gym required for this one. We'll give you lots of techniques to help increase core strength, improve balance and build strong limbs that are ready for running - all possible from the comfort of your home!
Section 2 (Optional) - Social Run: We will be taking anyone interested on a social run at this point - you'll be nicely warmed up after our morning session and we'll also go through a dynamic warm up before the run too. This will last approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour and will be an opportunity to discuss technique or simply enjoy running with like-minded people in the beautiful woodland of Coed y Brenin.
Section 3 - Stretching Masterclass: Here we'll look at a wide variety of stretches and mobilisations specifically aimed at runners and their traditional problem areas. We'll also include the use of foam rollers and other tools that can help you keep your body feeling healthy in between runs - this whole session will be an opportunity for you to tune into your body and come up with a simple routine specific to you.
Cost



The one-day Strength and Conditioning for Runners course will cost £30 (plus booking fee) per delegate and will include tea and coffee on arrival and a light lunch.
