In this episode we speak to Dr Chris Bramah and former GB 800m runner Becky Lyne all about biomechanics and how important understanding our running biomechanics is to reducing injury risk and bettering our performance.
We ask Becky about setting up her own GRACEfull Girls running programme, what the programme involves and why she wants to help other runners avoid the injuries which plagued her own career.
With Dr Chris Bramah we hear what injuries runners historically suffer from, simple tips for the best running technique, how mixing it up in terms of running surface and different training stimuli is a great idea to stay injury free and ask about the injuries women runners typically may suffer as opposed to men.
We also hear how to build up your running if you're just getting started and why having your running gait analysed is a really good move.
