Access Your Running Magic!

Accessing Running Magic is a 5-week course

to help you liberate more from your running!

“Makes such a difference to how you feel when you run, with immediate effect!”

The weekly sessions will cover –

  • How to run with optimal movement patterns. These are beneficial ways of moving not only to improving form and therefore performance, but also to reduce the risk of injury.
  • How to translate these into more powerful running, helping you to reach your goals, and do so without pushing harder and harder!
  • A wealth of physiotherapy-based tools to specifically support the running technique and to keep you mobile (outside of running too!), plus myriad tactics to keep you motivated to keep running as well as essential racing gems!

With the main aim being for you to enjoy discovering different and beneficial ways to move and to have some fun exploring and playing around with the exercises!

 

As a small group, each week we will look at a different part of our running, in order to piece it all together, including –

  • Individual video analysis of your running from the start to the finish of the course.
  • How our upper body and our lower body are operating when we run (and what they could be doing!), and the bit in the middle – our core!
  • As well as looking at our breathing, how we can optimise our warm up and our cool down, specific stretches and maintenance to help you get more out of your running.
  • Plus specifics around hydration and nutrition, as well as running around your cycle and getting the most out of our running for long-term health benefits…

Between each session, you have the opportunity to try out some of the week’s lessons, exercises and stretches, to build on the previous week’s work and to watch the effects in your running!

 

Here’s what some have reflected back following the sessions

“Thank you so much for the wonderful session! It’s really helpful for me…I have become more aware of my body especially breathing, stretching and my overall running form. I thoroughly enjoyed the course – it was informative, concise and very helpful – so thanks again!” MC, Japanese

 

“I did Dawn’s sessions…and took a minute off my 5k time that week! I know what a difference it can make. I now realise how much I shuffled before doing these sessions, with very short strides, and I can’t believe the difference…it has made to my stride length, and I feel like I’m flying! It’s great!” JH, British

 

“Just wanted to say WOW !! I’ve found the magic! I’m just back from a little run… putting into play all of what I learnt and it has made an incredible difference already! My pace was sooo much quicker, quite incredible… True testimony of your fantastic workshop and coaching. Thank you so much once again!” LC, British

A little bit more about Dawn

Dawn has developed the Accessing Running Magic workshops to combine these skills together with her physiotherapy and yoga experience having understood how much scope there is to help other runners reach their potential.
