Improve your running technique

The Team East Lothian “Train Like an Athlete” programme provides adults with a weekly training session to supplement your existing running and help improve your agility, balance, coordination, posture and flexibility to help increase running enjoyment and running performance.

Train on a track with experienced UK Athletics certified coaches who use a wide variety of training drills, exercises and analysis techniques to help improve how you run and how well your body copes with your running.

Whether you’re a runner looking to build on recent successes, targeting a specific event, a member of a jogscotland group, or a regular club runner, you can benefit from these sessions.

Each week, our Head Endurance Coach, Alister Russell, will look at the mechanics of running, and coach the group to improve flexibility, stability and running efficiency.  You will run more comfortably, with better posture, less risk of injury and with the tools you need to improve your performance.

Previous Attendee feedback includes:

“I’ve never enjoyed and learned so much from a session.”,

“I just feel so much more flexible, my hips alone feel 10 years younger”,

“My running now feels right, I’m seeing more, I’m enjoying it more”,

“Why have I not done all this stuff before?  What a difference it’s making”.
