This seminar covers the running-science approach to avoid running injuries. The focus will be on avoidance, not cures. Hopefully, you will learn how to avoid injuries so you won't need to learn about cures. You will learn about new research discoveries and not be be subjected to the same old, obsolete dogmas such as: stretching, cross-training, the 10% rule, magic shoes and drinks, etc.
Be assured, there will not be any technical jargon. The format will be conversational and informal. Seminars will be about an hour, or slightly longer; though we can extend the time if the participants wish.
Generally, we plan to hold the seminars on Saturday mornings.Briefly, the agenda will be as follows:
- *We will commence with several participants describing their most recent injuries and what they believe may have caused them.
- *Then we will very briefly discuss several antiquated dogmas that attempt to explain the cause for running injuries and why they don't even pass the common sense test.
- *Next, we will discuss the basics of modern, research science's understanding of running injuries.
- *I will cover the modern approach to avoid running injuries. This will cover the principles so, in the future, you can devise specific techniques to address your particular needs.
- *Finally, I'll describe, demonstrate and have all participants practice several simple "Running-Specific Strength Training" [RSST] exercises that are very effective in helping to avoid running injuries. Incidentally, the same RSST drills will also help improve your running performance.

Please take a minute and register so I'll know how many folks to expect. Plus, the registry has 6 multiple choice, injury related questions that will help me be certain I cover the most prevalent ones the participants have.
I will be emailing everyone listed in the signup registry when the sessions will be held.
Be prepared to take notes.
