What do you expect to get when you join a Running Club? Surely, you’ll be given Club t-shirt and a backpack, you’ll meet up to all go running together, you’ll make friends… But ultimately, where’s the added value that a professional running club can offer you? Advice, tips, recommendations… That’s the difference between a Running Club and a Running School. We have one at La Perla!
Running is not simply a question of setting off and running and letting yourself go. It’s important to be aware of the injuries we may undergo doing this sport and try to prevent them by improving our technique. Above all, it is advisable for runners who are just starting off (to not pick up any defects) and for expert runners (to improve their personal best times).
- Reducing the risk of injuries
- Greater speed and improved performance
- Maximum energy saving when training
- Delaying the onset of muscle fatigue
- Improving our body coordination
- Improving the efficiency and effectiveness of our movements
- Running more comfortably
In La Perla Running School we prepare our runners through different stages to achieve the improved optimum technique of all our runners.
Initiation to movement: performing a series of exercises to condition your body to the demanding requirements of this sport: walk and leap, linear, lateral or multi-direction agility drills, dynamic flexibility on floor, increase speed and control…
Perfecting movement: in this stage we train strength to adapt the exercise to our physical condition.
What are the best exercises?
– Balancing between thrust and traction forces.
– Corrective: mobility, joint stability, range of movement between exercises…
– Strength: capacity to develop strength at a physical, neural and metabolic level.
– Rotational: dynamic hip and trunk action workouts.
– Power: maximum amount of strength and speed the neuromuscular system can supply.
Race initiation: once the two first stages have been overcome, we plan and train specifically for the races that you are going to run in by means of different activities.
What activities are best for us?
– Jumping to reduce the impact against the ground and have stability when landing.
– Throwing from the chest, overhead and hip to vary support positions.
– Races, speed changes and sprints to increase resistance.
– Training speed to vary stride length and frequency.
Perfecting running form: in this last stage we train in order to achieve the maximum strength and speed capacity the neuromuscular system is capable of producing.
Movement quality must always be more important than the quantity of movement. This is why, we recommend carrying out cardioprotective training. A cardiac monitoring test using Bittium Faros 360 technology. This enables us to detect cardiac conduction alterations by using continuous electrocardiographic monitoring. Our medical experts will prepare a professional medical report to inform you of your sports health and give you a series of recommendations.
Running is a sport which has lately become fashionable but should be practised correctly. At La Perla Running School we give you advice so that running doesn’t turn into a risk sporting practice.
