Yes, we are all “Born to Run”, but sadly most people over the age of 10 in the United States have lost the ability to do so efficiently, effectively, and most importantly pain free. Olympic athletes spend thousands of hours perfecting the skills involved in their sports. From archery to weightlifting, basketball to judo each athlete masters the minutia of absorbing, stabilizing, and creating the forces needed to perfect their skills and sports. Olympic runners are no different.
If you want to run pain free you must see yourself as an athlete. You do not have to be able to run an Olympic qualifying time, but you must be willing to wrestle with Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion and it’s implications on your stride.
If you want to run pain free you have to believe the following:
- running is a skill
- running involves absorbing, stabilizing, and creating force
Then you must:
- Know what is causing your pain.
- Treat the cause of the pain instead of finding a workaround to be pain free.
- Adjust your stride and programing.
- Have the right shoe for your stride and event.
In this course you will learn to believe that running is a skill and the physics involved.
Then you will learn to:
- Evaluate and treat the most common pains associated with running.
- Modify your programing in the short, mid, and long-term to run pain free.
- Know what shoes work best for you and why in varied conditions.
The following course is a C.A.P. Athlete companion course and is currently not available to the public.
