Many women have a lot of concerns around returning to running after having a baby, regardless of when their baby was born. Am I ready to run? Should I leave it a certain time before I run? Will I injure myself? Why do things not feel quite right?
Niamh, a women’s health physio, Eliza, a pre and post-natal fitness coach and Andy, a running coach, will answer all these questions and more, during this unique two-part workshop. In fact, we go the extra mile to ensure that you know exactly what you personally need to improve in order to run safely and efficiently.
The workshop is split into the following sections:
Education and Assessment: Understand how pregnancy affects your body and core system control. Learn more about the pelvic floor and its role in running. Be more aware of pelvic floor dysfunction like leaking and prolapse and how to improve/prevent this during your running time.
Fit to Run: A workout covering exercises designed specifically to help you be run-ready, covering load, impact and strength challenges.
Technique: A practical outdoors session to check technique and a personal assessment of your running style with individual video analysis.
By the end of this workshop you’ll be able to:
Understand how your body has been affected by pregnancy and birth and how this impacts your running ability
Identify where your weak areas are
Learn which exercises will help you run better
Know how to improve your running technique
Understand best technique for running with a buggy
Drinks and light refreshments
Babysitting so you can get the most from the workshop
A PDF of what you’ve learnt during the workshop, including exercises to do at home
A personal running assessment
A safe space for babies to play
The workshop will take place in a beautiful, spacious studio a short walk from Highbury and Islington station. Babies are most welcome. If you have a running buggy, please do bring it along.
This workshop is best suited for those who are at least 4 months post-natal.
