Spring Into Running Series
Wy'east Wolfpack and AirBnb have teamed up to bring you this 5 week series designed to help beginning and intermediate runners develop a solid foundation for efficient running through tips and techniques.
Topics include: dynamic & static stretching, proper form and foot strike, breathing, mental cues, uphill and downhill running, as well as warm up/cool down drills and functional exercises to help you get strong and stay injury-free.
When & Where:
One hour sessions Tuesdays at 12:00 pm, outdoors along the Waterfront Esplanade and surrounding areas, rain or shine.
Introduction followed by a discussion of proper form and foot strike, breathing, and mental tips and techniques for pushing past your comfort zone. (ALL sessions begin with a dynamic warm up, include a short run, and end with a static stretching cool down.)
Uphill Running techniques including proper cadence, visualization and breathing, as well as implementing hiking into your hill work. Discussion will touch upon VO2 Max and how to increase it.
Downhill Running techniques including stabilizing your "pelvic bowl" and lowing center of gravity, avoiding over-striding, as well as mental tricks to help mitigate the fear factor and keep you cool, calm and collected.
Technical/trail running techniques and with “speed ladder” drills and single leg exercises that help strengthen the feet and develop proper balance and stability.
Final group run on the infamous "Crazy 8" to put all the techniques learned to the test! This route is a tough and fun rite of passage in the Wy'east Wolfpack community...we invite you to become part of the pack!
