Ian Saundes – 5 KM – ultra – Marathon Distance Runners

Ian first came to see us at The Running School to help improve his speed, for all distances including 5k’s up to ultra marathons. Upon completing his Biomechanical Analysis we were able to identify that Ian’s ground reaction time was slowing him down. Spending too long on the floor resulted in him overstriding which caused him to break a lot, which was very inefficient. Once we taught Ian to use his posterior chain correctly and spend less time on the ground his speed picked up immediately, breaking his 10k PB to run under 39:00 minutes and he was able to take 17 minutes off his marathon PB to run the Edinburgh marathon in 2:50.

I couldnt be happier with my experience of the Running School and feel things can only get even better from here as Nick and his team have given me the fundamental knowledge, understanding and technique to becoming the runner I have always wanted to be. Teaching your body to move differently isn’t easy and it isn’t a quick fix but patience has long been the friend of the distance runner.
