Oct 10 2018, - by Andrea Ross

Following on from Andrea’s great blog recently titled ‘Slow down, don’t stop’ I thought it would be good to put some answers to the numerous questions she was asking herself during her half marathon.

Stop The Trots - The Truth About Runs and Runs: by Alice Hector

Jul 19 2018, - by Andrea Ross

This is a very hushed up topic. No one talks about it, but it is a very common problem amongst athletes, especially long distance runners. Instead of sweeping it under the rug, we wanted to find out if there is anything to help prevent it - because, although very natural, it can certainly making racing a much more stressful situation! We asked Alice Hector, a professional triathlete and a 70.3 IRONMAN champion (amongst many other podium achievements that would be too long to list - she's a bit of a superstar!), to help us shed some light on the subject.  ..

All About Ken

Jul 18 2018, - by Andrea Ross

As much as we love telling you all about how to fix your running injuries and things you can do to improve, we also think its interesting to know what happens behind the scenes. Even more so perhaps, about the people who make Run3D tick. It may surprise you to find out that Run3D is actually a very small team of (specialist) people, covering a large range of skill sets and backgrounds, to keep us running efficiently and smoothly. One of our key team members is someone who we consider to be a bit of a dark horse in the world of running...his name is Ken, and he seems to know everyone and anyone that has to do with running.  ..

Running With A Cold

Mar 26 2018, - by Andrea Ross

I admit, as I sit here writing this, I’m on day 6 of a ‘cold’. This isn’t just any common day cold, but what feels like possibly the worse virus ever (I'm sure it's not, but you get my point). Most runners I know, would probably carry on running through a sniffly nose. Certainly for myself, it takes quite a lot to stop me – perhaps too much? Having written on this topic before, I even found myself ‘googling’ should you be running with a cold – not because I felt like I could by any means, but more to justify to myself that I shouldn’t be.

When Is The Best Time To Have 3D Gait Analysis?

Jan 31 2018, - by Andrea Ross

Peak marathon season is approaching faster than you can say Mo Farah. Brighton Marathon is only 11 weeks away, London Marathon 12 weeks, with many others even sooner! The first few weeks of training for a marathon is usually very organised, some would even go as far as saying its exciting! Everything goes to plan as you tick off those completed runs. Foam rolling happens (at least for a day), and you’re even eating well. But...as time ticks on, we all know our lives don’t stop for our running schedules, even if we think they should. As we get busier and busier, runs get missed, foam rolling ceases, and dry January has to end at some point. Instead of trying to play catch up with your training and risk developing an injury, the best thing you can do to avoid this is to plan ahead. If you can get all of your information from the beginning, you'll be set up from the very start. The best way to learn more about your running is to have a gait analysis assessment. ..

How Run3D Will Make You A Better and Faster Runner

Jul 27 2017, - by Andrea Ross

Are you thinking about having a Run3D gait analysis, but not really sure how it can help you? Anna Boniface explains how Run3D helped identify her injury risk, improve efficiency issues with her running style, and helped her to acknowledge a smarter way to strengthen for the marathon. Did we mention she then proceeded to knock 9 minutes off her previous marathon pb and came first female in the non elite London Marathon 2017 race?...   ..

Ultramarathons - Its not just about the ups, but the downs too

Jul 03 2017, - by Andrea Ross

Ultramarathons are a completely different to your normal running races. For starters, most of them tend to be on trails - and in this instance, in the Lake District, which is notoriously very hilly. They are also very far, a distance which is longer than a marathon, but thats really the only agreed upon definition.   ..

Running Biomechanics - Simplified

Jun 09 2017, - by Andrea Ross

Running Biomechanics - the term even sounds complicated. But, when you break it down into its individual segments, it makes much more sense. We aren't trying to dodge the fact that running is a complex movement, but rather impress upon you why 3D analysis is the gold standard. If you look at all the components listed below, a 2D analysis would only be able to pick up a fraction of what you see - and not very accurately at that! ..

Strength Training For Long Distance Runners

Jun 01 2017, - by Andrea Ross

Everyone wants a quick fix, especially runners, because all we want to do is run. Is that too much to ask!? Runners will keep going unless stopped by an injury. At which point the solution is typically to rest for a period of time, or expect a physiotherapist to fix you, instantly of course - like magic. That's how it works, right?  ..

Marathon Madness

Mar 09 2017, - by Andrea Ross

You have to have a little crazy in you to endure what a runner puts themselves through for 'fun' - but that's not exactly what we mean by marathon madness. Marathons happen regularly throughout the year across the world. But the 'big ones', both internationally and in the UK, spike up at two peak times; spring & autumn. In England, the most prestigious race of the year is the London Marathon, taking place at the end of April.   ..

Running Cadence

Jan 27 2017, - by Andrea Ross

Is your running cadence important? Is running technique important? Shouldn’t you just do what you naturally do and just run? I suppose the answer to these questions will depend on what you are trying to achieve as well as other very individual factors, such as your injury risk and your anatomical structure. Some of us are purely built better for running - just like some are built for rugby or gymnastics. Running is no different. It is still a sport, and a very injury prone one at that, whether you want to believe it or not. ..

Running Resolutions

Jan 01 2017, - by Andrea Ross

Its the beginning of the year and resolutions are on the forefront of everyones mind. A lot of you will be creating new running goals, challenges, and hopefully promises of good intentions to do things you know you're suppose to do, but don't. You might be starting off the new year injured - or swearing that this is the year that you won't get an injury. Either way, there are a few things that you may want to consider to make sure you're successful. Run3D's Physiotherapist, Andrea Bachand, has come up with a few suggestions:  ..

Rollin' Rollin' Rollin'

Dec 15 2016, - by Andrea Ross

The dreaded foam roller. The thing that everyone loves to hate. How is it possible that something so painful is supposed to help? MOST runners own a foam roller. However, about 90% of those owners will likely confess its permanent residence within their closet, stuffed behind things that area also probably never used. Lets get one thing straight - owning a foam roller and actually using it are NOT the same thing!  ..
