Hey RIF REVers!
Had a fun weekend out at the Koala Run at Redlands. It was great to catch up with a ton of RIF REVers. The Bayside Runners did a great job and raised lots of money for charity which is pretty cool. Bet there are a few sore bodies today!
Caught up with Shona Stephenson this week when she got back from The North Face 100k and wanted to show you some progressions of core strength specifically for your running. You can get pretty full on with plyometric strength for your running but I wanted to just start gently so you create a really stable base with strength and TECHNIQUE that you can build on over time. In this video Shona and I show you some simple hopping and jumping stuff and how to make sure you are engaging the correct muscles as soon as you touch the ground. For running it is all about efficiency and you can lose a lot of energy by not controlling the forces of your body particularly as you land into foot strike. It’s a classic for causing overuse injuries as well.
This is one of the ways you can really increase speed and efficiency guys so check it out.
Enjoy your runs RIF REVers,
Talk again Wednesday,
