CrossFit London Running Seminar

18 Oct

I’m delighted to announce the second of our running skill sessions for our members and, (in this case ) outside visitors!

We hope to hold a monthly ( ish. Every 6 to 7 weeks..) running seminar  or clinic where you can learn and/or refresh your POSE running technique, learn valuable injury prevention/treatment ideas and meet other open and willing to share runners. Hopefully this will help us learn and compare Crossfit endurance scheduling techniques with other  established regimes. The important thing is to finding out what really work for you,  not just listening to the spin that magazines and websites (including ours) put on protocols.

People have been running for thousands of years and the libraries have accumulated a lot of information. all of which needs to be respectfully assessed and factored, either in or out. Equally, well-meaning journalists have been peddling the schedules of the elite to novice beginners. It’s time to create the support network you need to get you running well.

We will also focus on running specific drills and exercises that, allegedly, are “guaranteed” to boost your running performance through the roof.  We have a clutch of sport scientists and students  on our team anxious to share the research, evaluate performance and point out that correlation does not imply causation and  that  the plural of anecdote is not data.

We also have former Marines, over 50’s, sub 3 hour marathon runners, former sub-50 second 400m runners.

The event is from 1400 till 1600 on Saturday 26th November at 9 Malcolm Place E2 0EU. Bethnal Green Tube station is 2 minutes away. Don’t bring a car. Run, tube, bus or cycle.

You can book this as a normal class so the most it costs is £13 (less if you have a regular membership) So click the Getting Started button

This will be part lecture, part discussion, part practical. Come prepared to learn and share.

Specially for this session we wil feature the kate Pankhurst Trigger point workshop, with a special focus on  knee pain: come prepared to poke and prod and be poked and prodded, Andrew Stemler will present the famous “learning POSE quickly  workshop”, with special contributions from other fascinating  experts ( I’ll announce them soon),

Our guest runner is David Evans .

who has ran  11 marathons, ran  50 miles 4 times, ran 30 miles 5 times., won races at 5 km and 50 miles, has  raced 15 miles at Pen-y-fan with 15 kilos on his back and carrying an assault rifle. Then  got up the next day and did it again.5 km PB is 17:13 .Half marathon PB is 78:16
He also spent twelve years at art school. and has a PhD from the late Dartington College of Arts for a thesis titled ‘Reading Neuroscience: Ventriloquism as a Metaphor for Multiple Readings of Self..
As normal,  we get to put David in the hot seat and ask about his training, what he finds helps, what he finds hinders. Come with questions, come prepared to learn

One thought on “CrossFit London Running Seminar

  1. just as an update for this event. Apart from our normal team of massage therapists. we wil have a physio for you to pester, and spend a bit of time trying to teach you how to relieve achilles pain, and have a look at the romanian deadlift,

    We will package up a quicker version of “death by 10m” ( a fast easy to stage bleep test) for days were just just need to push yourself in a different way.

    We are probably going to start the big “stretching” debate, before, after, prevention or just cure PNF? METS????
