If your biggest fear is not being able to run because you're injured, then this hub is for you
Using the techniques and resources explained here, you'll be stronger, more flexible and stable when you run. You'll know how to train smart. This is what prevents injury - not shoes or orthotics, not supplements or selective diets.
The four-phase cycle is designed to first self-assess (1), and build up mobility and movement confidence (2). Then use the ideas for integrating movement into play (3). Finally no sustainable training cycle is complete without adequate recovery (4).
Use the cycle as a framework for building resilience. You don't need to find extra time to do these - just add them to your existing run, workout or recovery routine.
Your body knows how to move well, but 'you' get in the way by placing obstacles in your path (sitting too long, poor shoes, inadequate nutrition etc..) I invite you to explore what your body can do when you let go of structure, reps and sets... and just play round. Our bodies love problem-solving!
And once you're more resilient and mobile, you won't need us and we'll bid you a fond fairwell! This is a subscription hub so stay as long as you need to.
This hub is ideal for runners who want to cross-train, or build strength, but don't like the gym or following structured workouts with repetitive movements. Often these focus on only one or two muscle groups and do little to integrate mind and body.
Smart training works on the mind. By challenging your body in a variety of ways, you develop new brain connections that may result in a better way of moving. Making it playful is more motivating so you won't need to 'talk yourself into' training. And with growing confidence you can combine these with your run. Imagine vaulting over a gate rather than stopping to open it. Testing your balance crossing the river via stones. Or climbing a tree to create a new route in your usual running pattern.
Restore your natural range of motion and build strength so your body is prepared for the unexpected. Focus on feet, ankles and hips.
Restore your balance and elasticity to move with ease and efficiency. Less effort means you can go further before tiring and reduce injury risk.
Make time for quality rest and recovery so as to be sustainable in sport. Avoid over-training and under-fuelling by making wise choices.
Hi, I’m Rebecca
I'm a breath and balance coach - your host to Keep On Running.
I've competed in many different sports - from equestrian to running, triathlon to freediving.
It's through my freedive journey that I truly learnt what it means to be efficient in mind, body and breath... because I had only one breath to do what I needed to do. And I set 5 National Records!
The techniques demonstrated in the hub come from yoga, natural movement philosophy and play. I've drawn on a lot of the latest sports science to bring you to best advice on how to have a sustainable running career.
I put this hub together because there is so much information online, much of it conflicting. I believe that our bodies are far more intelligent than we give them credit for. If we allow our bodies to perform how they were designed, we are less likely to break down.
