The 5k to 10K e-course

Hi folks, welcome to the place where you take your running to the next level 

I’ve designed this e-course with one simple purpose – to improve your running right now.  No gimmicks, no complicated techniques to follow, no quick fixes. 

Does this sound good to you? Then it’s time to move your running to the next level. 

What comes first?  The run or the technique?! 

Well you can’t really have one without the other, I think the most important thing to understand is that almost anyone physically capable of running can run, the question then is how do we work out the very best way? 

You may be wondering why is technique so important?  After all, if anyone can run then what’s wrong with just doing that? 

A story will illustrate this perfectly, and it’s one I experienced myself first hand at a race in North Wales. 

I was near the start line, the start itself was straight up a brutal hill, no chance to ease ourselves in, once we started we were going uphill for over 500ft.  To say a warm up would be useful would be an understatement!  As I slowly walked around, then started to add a little (very) easy jogging I happened to notice other runners warming up.  Here’s the thing, they weren’t moving, at least not like I was, instead they were stretching their muscles in a variety of positions, all of them in static positions. 

So what’s wrong with that picture?  Well, warming up is definately the right thing to do, I’ve studied elite athletes for some time and I can tell you it’s what they do.  But they do it very differently to the runners I observed that day in Wales. The elite runners warm up like I described, slowly moving their bodies into movement patterns that they will be using during their race or training session. 

And it’s knowledge exactly like this that makes a difference to how likely you are to stay injury free, how fast you can run, how far you’ll be able to maintain your pace for, and so on. 

That’s why technique is so important.  

And now I’m giving you the opportunity to improve your techinique by enrolling on my latest e-course. 

Simply type your email into the box at the top of this page and I’ll send you the full e-course over 2 weeks, that’s 6 emails in total. 

I really think you’ll benefit, and I’d love to hear your success stories, so do please let me know how you find the course. 

Stay injury free and have fun running!  Geoff
