Running Workshop March 2014

On Thursday 27th March The Lensbury held a Running Workshop for members in the Conference Centre. The workshop covered many areas for all abilities from beginners to advanced runners. With two fantastic guest speakers, Mara Yamauchi, former elite British marathon runner and Steven Lauder, ironman triathlete, the workshop was greatly received. Some of the responses can be seen below.

A few of the topics covered in the workshop were:

  • Anatomy & Biomechanics of Running
  • Training – What & Why
  • Common Running Injuries
  • Nutrition & Hydration
  • Injury Prevention & Self-help Advice
  • Optimising Rest & Recovery
  • Corrective Exercises & Rehabilitation
  • Race Preparation

Following on from the workshop Steven Lauder prepared a hand-out with advice on stretches for runners, the hand-out can be found below. The download includes a range of static exercises and are listed by muscle group so you choose to focus on the area that you feel needs attention from the comfort of your own home.

Feedback from the workshop

I thought it was very informative and the two speakers created a approachable, friendly atmosphere.


The workshop was excellent, Steven was very informative, he made everyone feel welcome to ask questions and join in with discussions. His descriptions of his own personal experiences were also really helpful. Mara was great too; I especially appreciated the time she took to discuss individual questions after the workshop finished.


“Thanks again for organising this session and thanks to Mara and Steven for delivering it.  I attended with my daughter, Jen.  We both enjoyed the session very much, quite simply we could not fault the session,  excellent.  It did everything we hoped for and probably a bit more.” 


With so much interest in the workshop we will be holding more in the future and will possibly look into other subjects such as tennis as well. Look on our website  for updates on future events. If you would like to know more about Steven Lauder Osteopath at The Lensbury Spa please click here.
