If you’re a triathlete, understanding the key elements of running is essential to improving your performance. In our latest Running Clinic Recap, we found that integrating proper breathing techniques and building strides into your workout routine can make a major difference in your overall technique and endurance. We’ll take an in-depth look at how these exercises will help strengthen your speed and agility in no time!
Overview of the Running Clinic Session
Our running clinic session was a success! We had an amazing turnout and we were able to provide useful tips on running economy and efficiency that can help runners improve their running performance. Our head coach discussed the importance of proper form and gave out drills that athletes can use to improve their running mechanics. He also instructed on various strategies to avoid injuries, such as strength exercises, stretches, foam rolling, and nutrition. During the clinic, we also answered questions from our attendees about running program planning and how to monitor data throughout a race season. Altogether, it was an informative evening that runners would benefit from joining each time it is offered.
Key Takeaways on Proper Form and Technique
Understanding proper running form and technique is essential in order to optimize performance and reduce the risk of injury. During our recent running clinic, experienced coaches highlighted the importance of posture, foot-fall, stability, balance and power production. We learned that by adjusting certain aspects of our mechanics such as stride length, arm pump and neck placement, we can maximize our efficiency on the track or road. Additionally, the coaches provided a range of dynamic drills to help participants become more aware of how their body moves when running in order to ultimately improve speed and endurance. Overall it was an informative session that left us ready to start practicing better form!
All in all, the recent running clinic provided invaluable knowledge and insight for any aspiring runner. With an extensive overview of proper form and technique, training tips for improving performance, the various health and wellness benefits associated with regular exercise, strategies to avoid injury while running, and a Q&A session with an expert coach, the clinic was a comprehensive experience that yielded great results from participants. For anyone looking to take up running as a hobby or serious endeavor, this clinic served as a great introduction to what lies ahead. Whatever your ambition may be, it’s important to always remember to respect your body and take necessary precautions while running in order to succeed at your goal safely and healthily.

Having proper form while running is essential to improving efficiency and performance. With the correct form, a runner can use less energy to cover the same distance than with improper form, leading to improved endurance, speed, and overall performance. Additionally, using correct form helps the runner avoid injuries by ensuring that all muscles are being engaged properly. These are some top tips to correct your running form.
For more advice on improving your running form and energy expenditure, join us on our next run clinic. With our help, you can take your performance to the next level!

Passive Heat Acclimatization
As we are getting ready for a hot race it is very important to get heat acclimatized. Therefore, I recommend a passive heat acclimatization. This is a process of gradually and naturally allowing the body to adjust to warmer temperatures. It involves staying outdoors in hot weather or sitting in a sauna for a period of time. Initially, the body may feel uncomfortable in the heat and sweat profusely as it attempts to cool itself down, but over time, the body becomes accustomed to hot weather and is better able to regulate its temperature.
This process can help reduce symptoms of heat illness such as cramping and dehydration. Additionally, passive heat acclimatization can help improve endurance and performance in hot weather. Some strategies for passive heat acclimatization include spending increased amounts of time outdoors, wearing fewer layers of clothing when outside, and avoiding physical activity during the hottest part of the day. It is very important to hydrate and take some electrolytes during this process. Start off with 10 min and then gradually build to 20 min. With regular practice and patience, passive heat acclimatization can help individuals become more comfortable in high temperatures.
