ELM’s Need for Speed running clinic begins Oct. 29

Equilibrium Lifestyle Management’s (ELM) annual Need For Speed running clinic begins Thursday, Oct. 29.

This clinic includes weekly coached training sessions designed to improve technique, speed and strength as well as education and support in creating a personalized training plan for the coming year.

“Runners who think that more mileage and longer hours are the only ways to improve often end up frustrated or sidelined with injuries,” said ELM owner Sarah Seads.

“Making small but specific changes in strength, flexibility, technique, and program design will help you reach a new level of performance and without nearly as much effort.”

In addition to weekly coached speed work sessions, participants will learn skills and drills to improve running form and efficiency. The program includes a detailed video analysis and assessment of technique along with specific corrective exercises for each participant.

Runners will also learn the benefits of mid-foot running technique and how to incorporate barefoot running and cadence work into their training programs along with the key training principles for program design, heart rate training, injury prevention and fuel for optimal performance.

“Don’t let the name scare you- this clinic is for all runners who are looking to improve their technique, knowledge and, of course, their speed,” Seads said.

Need for Speed takes place on Thursday evenings from 5:30-7 p.m. in Comox. Participants must be able to run a minimum of 60 minutes or 10kms in order to join this running clinic although there is no speed requirement.
