As a runner do you stretch? If yes why? Is it because you read somewhere that you’re supposed to? Or because your physio prescribed it as part of a treatment plan? Or maybe you heard that stretching is supposed to prevent injury. Or it’s just part of your running routine; put on the shoes, push a tree and pull your foot up toward your butt and off you go.

Next question: do you feel it makes a difference? Have you ever gone through a period where you didn’t stretch on a regular basis and noticed you didn’t feel any worse or perhaps you slowed down or maybe even got injured?

The funny thing is as far as running goes, nobody ( even the scientists) seems entirely sure if stretching helps….but as a runner we sorta feel we should…and that maybe it makes a difference but we’re not always sure how.

What if you could learn a method of stretching that would:

– Enable you to climb hills with more power and less effort

– feel smoother and find it easier to flow

– find extra speed without added strain

 

I’ve just completed a course called AIM which shows you how to stretch so that you use more elastic energy (more efficient and makes running feel easier)

It takes a bit of learning and needs to be practiced but once you know how to do it a basic routine can be completed in less than 10 minutes.

In this workshop you will learn how to use the AIM method of muscular loading to run with more easy power and less hard slog
