Marathon Workshop – Running Drills and Conditioning

Date: 26 July 2013
Time: 730pm
Venue: Singapore Polytechnic Track

The workshop will introduce various stretches and simple yet effective strengthening exercises that are important for runners . We will also be doing hurdle drills that one normally does not have the chance to try out. It will be a great workout session to improve your running form!

Proper conditioning and stretching are crucial factors in keeping oneself injury free from running. Stretching improves flexibility which is one of the key factors in achieving optimum performance. Research has shown that good flexibility will help to improve one's running economy; a runner will be able to expend less energy to cover the same distance with the same pace when his/her running economy is improved. Stretching also improves uneven flexibility. Running is a repetitive sport and our body repeat the same movement over and over again. Hence, uneven flexibility can cause serious structural problems especially in a marathon when one needs to repeat the same movement over 30000 times! Strength training is equally critical as it reduces neuromuscular stress, improves mechanical efficiency and reduces the oxygen demand at submaximal running speeds. Indirectly, strength training will help runners reduce the chance of getting injured.

A combination of endurance training and strength training will produce a more efficient and faster runner. Come and kick start your training regime with the right form today!
