Don't Let a Sore Butt Stop you Running! 
Running Mums Australia 
Hey RMA crew! Welcome to February!! We’ll be thinking about Christmas soon! Talking to so many Running Mums lately who are putting in a distance base ready for their long events later in the year. I have seen a few people starting to get some niggles through their butt or their glutes which is a real pain in the you know what… (literally)! This type of stuff can be tricky so it’s important to get it checked out. If it’s ongoing you will need to get scans done to investigate.and commonly it can be difficult to identify the exact cause. The reason is there can be a number of issues at play. First thing I think of with someone with butt pain is what are they doing running technique wise? Watch out for over striding. Full Article.

4 Best Stretches to Target Achilles Pain
Running Mums Australia 
Hey RMA crew! Hope you had a great break! I got down to see Ang’s family. Running around the Mornington Peninsua area is just divine! Think I could move there tomorrow! Congrats to all the RMA crew who did the Resolution Run as well as the Cadbury Marathon down in Tassie. Looked like fun! Had a few runners talking to me lately about Achilles pain and it’s such a bugger of an injury. People ask me how to stretch Achilles most effectively so I did this video to show you my four favorite Achilles stretches. There is a dynamic stretch then a number of ways to get the most of your stretches. You want to hit Achilles problems from all angles so check them out. Full Article. 

6 Best Core Exercises BEFORE Running! 
Running Mums Australia 
Hey RMA crew! Seeing so many runners improve their running technique out of sight guys! I know it’s getting pretty hot but a lot of you are putting in a distance base for your events next year. Can’t wait to catch up with everyone at Gold Coast! I thought it was a good time to look at a quick pre run core strength program to get everything working properly for your runs. The dynamic warmups are great but there aren’t many runners that actually look at technique based core strength as a pre run routine and it’s actually a great way to get the RIGHT muscles working for speed, endurance and to stay injury free. Professional dancers use it, ‘elite’ runners use it but it’s actually even MORE important for. Full Article. 

Get Core Strength Right for Running
Running Mums Australia
Hey RMA crew! The silly season is here. I started early with my mother’s birthday. Have to up my distance this week to make up for the feast! Will had a great time with all the running mums at Sunny Coast. Made me contemplate a sea change. Been a big year! I wanted to talk about core strength for running because these days a lot of people work on core strength by themselves or with their trainers which is excellent but it is important to start with the basics and make sure you get them right Kind of like building good foundations for your house.So core strength is pretty important for running because running is so repetetive. If you aren’t stable. Full Article.

Tight Hip Flexors! 
Running Mums Australia
Hey RMA crew! I had a massive weekend just gone. Headed to Endeavour 500 which is an awesome relay event to raise money for the disabled. I can see an RMA team there in the near future…would be very cool guys!! I was doing the physio as well as running which was kind of tricky and over the weekend you do spend a fair bit of time travelling in the bus so it made me think about hip flexors and how you look after them for running. Hip flexors are crazy muscles. They kind of get ignored a fair bit. Practitioners even forget to release them but they are a real key for improving your running. Full Article.  


How to Foam Roll Properly! 
Running Mums Australia 
When you tackle your own tension you want to be more skillful than Flash and you really want to know what you are doing. Most of us runners will use a foam roller on ITB down the outside of the leg and you just roll right? I can hear the oooh’s and ouches from here! So to do it right you firstly want to go back to your anatomy. What are you trying to achieve? And I want you as a runner to be crystal clear. With a foam roller you are lengthening and easing two things. he first is the fascia, which is like the glad wrap around your muscle. Kind of like our own superman suit that we come in! Full Article. 


Say No to Foot Stress Fractures 
Running Mums Australia 
This week I wanted to talk about how to avoid foot stress fractures and if you happen to be unfortunate enough to have them, how to get rid of them for good! So first thing is you want to be aware of some of the signs of stress fractures in the foot. They can be in a number of areas from the outside of the ankle to small bones towards the back of the foot but they are most common over the bones leading into the toes.Typically the ones next to the big toe and the next one beside that (2nd and 3rd metatarsals). So often pain comes on with activity and slowly gets worse until it can become a bit of a dull roar. One of our RIFREVers and Running Mum Tracey has been getting swelling on top of the foot as well. Full Article.

Have to Be Aware of the Nasties With Running
Running Mums Australia 
Hey RMA crew! Hope everyone had a great week. This week I had a couple of people asking me about compartment syndrome, one of the trickier things that can affect runners. Basically I just wanted to chat about compartment syndrome so you can be aware of the symptoms and get it checked out. The muscle compartments in our body are surrounded by a glad wrap type tissue called fascia. Compartment syndrome is when, for whatever reason this fascia traps blood supply. There are two types to be aware of, firstly the one that rarely affects runners, acute compartment syndrome, it’s usually caused by some sort of trauma. This stuff is a medical emergency. Full Article.

Best Exercises for Knee Pain! 
Running Mums Australia 
Hey RMA crew! Great to see the girls rocking out their RMA shirts at the RIFREV session with Will and I last week. Had a few people asking about exercises for runners knee lately and I thought I would go through some important stuff with you. We’ve talked before about technique with knee pain and just be careful with overstriding as well as heel striking. If you get too far out in front the forces for your knee are multiplied three fold and that can spell trouble. Shorten stride a touch so you land more under the hips. Remember too, if you heel strike you get locked into the full mechanics of your foot. If you happen to drop in through the foot that will lock you into a rotation that twists the knee inward subtly. Full Article.

Move Before you Run to go Faster and Further!
Running Mums Australia
Hey RMA crew! Last week we talked about how travelling in the car or sitting for long periods can make muscles tight as well as shorten you through the front which has an effect on your running. This week I though I would show you guys a few ways to optimise the body and lengthen yourself out before you run no matter where you are. One of the big secrets of looking after length in your body for running is actually that movement lengthens our muscles. hat’s all well and good but how do you actually use movement to achieve that? When we treat we actually use movement heaps and there’s a whole bunch of movement strategies called Feldenkrais techniques. Full Article.

Pittsworth Road Trip: Hit the Ground Running after a Car Trip
Running Mums Australia 
Hey RMA Crew! Had a great road trip out to visit the Pittsworth RMA mums the other day! Big shout out to Danielle, Bin, Jamie, and Janelle for helping organise it. Will and I had heaps of fun! You guys have such a great running community out there! It was a two and a half hour drive and I thought I would use that as an example of how to manage your body for running especially after long trips. Sometimes we travel for races and we don’t always get there the day before so it’s handy to know how to manage tightness during and after a car trip so you can basically hit the ground running… Literally! One of the first things to be aware of with a car trip is that sitting for longs periods does a couple of things. Full Article.

Say No to Tight Calves! 
Running Mums Australia
Hey RMA crew! Hope you had a great week! I caught up with everyone at Sunshine Coast which was awesome. Best weather! Best day! Congrats to everyone that ran! Had a lot of people asking about tight calves this week so thought I would go over a few pieces. Tight calves can be so frustrating because it’s hard to work out exactly what is causing them so you have to be aware of a number of different things that could be making them get tight and stay tight. The first key is to be aware of your running technique. Just be aware of how you are landing. Often we get our heal strikers that are often very upright in their running position. Full Article.


Quick Shoe Check... Part 1
Running Mums Australia 
Hey RMA crew!I got down to River Run 100 last Sunday and caught up with everyone there. Great to see so many Running Mums doing cool stuff raising awareness for Run For Hummingbird House with four teams! How cool is that. While I was there I caught up with Sharon who was talking to me about a pain on the outside of her foot. She just got a new pair of shoes so we did a quick shoe check and found the outside heal support area was pretty spongy. and when combined with being a bit of a heal striker this was probably causing an issue. Couple of strategies to tackle this type of problem, firstly check your shoes when you buy them. Full Article.

Run Faster, Further, by Finding your Tipping Point
Running Mums Australia 
Hey RMA Crew! Will had a great time last weekend in Sydney with you all. Talking about Will, today I wanted to go through probably the single most helpful strategy to improve your running immediately.I had one of our mums preparing for her first half marathon the other day. She had a couple of niggles and she was asking questions about improving running. I think I was kind of confusing her with detail because she said ‘if there is one piece to start targeting, what would it be?’ Easy, find your tipping point! So what is your tipping point? It’s the body position you want to use for the most effortless running. So how do you find it? Full Article.


Say No to Achilles Pain! 
Running Mums Australia
Hey RMA crew! Hope you had a good week. We are still coming off our Gold Coast high. I know Kokoda is this week, so big shout out to all the RMA people braving the cold (not to mention the 98K) this weekend. Today I wanted to talk about Achilles pain because it can be the absolute pits and it can put you out if you don’t prevent and manage it. Definitely one of the trickiest overuse injuries going round and we have a friend in at the moment who kind of pushed too hard at Oxfam and is paying the price. Big thing is to understand Achilles pain so you can prevent it. Sometimes little innocuous mistakes can have fairly severe consequences. First thing is to get an idea of calf tightness.

No Excuses NOT to Stretch your Hammies! 6 Ways to Stop Niggles for Running! 
Running Mums Australia 
Hey RMA crew! Hope you had a great weekend! We had crazy fun with the Gold Coast Marathon and it was awesome to catch up with so many running mums on the day.Wanted to quickly talk about hamstring tightness with running because these guys can be troublesome, especially if you don’t understand them properly. We had a friend who came within a breath of missing Gold Coast because of hamstrings so they deserve your respect.First thing you want to know is some of the risk factors with hamstrings and often a big key is your stride. Commonly if you are overstriding your foot gets out in front of the body and you then use muscle strength to drive the body forward. If you can imagine that foot out in front. Full Article.

Warming Up for Running 
Running Mums Australia 
Hey RMA crew! With Gold Coast coming up next week I wanted to talk just a little about warm ups today because I know there’s a bit of confusion out there with so many different options for warming up. There will be some runners out there who talk about warming up in the ‘first couple of kilometres’ on course which always gives me a laugh but also makes me nervous as well! With running warm up is priority for injury prevention AND performance. Where the confusion often lies is what to do for your warm up? When I was doing my running as a teenager, warm ups were a series of static stretches, that is holding your quad stretch for around twenty seconds then moving on to glutes, hammies, whatever. Full Article.

Running Mums Australia 
Hey Running Mums! Been a big week getting ready for Gold Coast. I know a lot of you RMA crew are champing at the bit and I can’t wait to see you guys on the day. Most of you are pretty much done with your long runs and are now tapering. We have seen some sore bodies! Worth the short term pain for the fun come race day guys no matter what your goals are. With the pointy end of the running season on us, I wanted to talk about body positioning and it’s really important to be aware of your own structure. and how that relates to speed, endurance and staying injury free. For speed and endurance you want to be stacked perfectly, head over shoulders, shoulders over hips, hips over feet. Full Article.

Sore Knees and Racing Soon? Tackle Runners Knee Head on! 
Running Mums Australia
Hi guys! Hope you’re all going well with the longer runs. It was great to catch up with a whole bunch of the RMA crew over the weekend at the workshop. Everyone looked awesome. I just wanted to quickly go through runners knee because whatever you’re training for it’s important to be aware of risk factors and be proactive with your knees. Firstly what is runners knee and basically it’s what we call patellofemoral syndrome, the knee cap tracks poorly on the large bone of the leg and causes inflammation and pain. It can be mild, just achey knees with long runs or severe, stabbing, catching leading to degeneration of cartilage under the knee . The gyst being, lets not go there! Full Article.

Say NO to ITB pain! 
Running Mums Australia 
Hey Running Mums! Hope everyone’s going well especially with training loads increasing. Been talking with a lot of inspiring women at the moment who are juggling running goals with family. Shona Stephenson came 9th at The North Face 100k last Sunday and was doing school drop off Monday morning! How cool is that!! So with kilometers going up for a lot of us we just want to be aware of the potential risk factors that can silently sneak up on us out on the road. We all want to get through the season in one piece, so ITB issues can be one of the scariest things for you as a runner for a couple of reasons: Full Article.

Improve Your Obstacle Time: Target Inside the Leg
Obstacle Racing Magazine
Hey Racers, I just got down the beach for Easter and I’m feeling fresher already. Going for a run on the sand at Burleigh this morning I could see right up to the point, almost 2k straight. I was looking at the other runners as they came closer to me and I noticed from a long way off, around 500 meters I could tell a lot about the runner without actually being able to see them clearly. ou can tell by a speck in the distance if they are old or young, higher level guys doing loops or just occasional runners preparing for the Easter egg onslaught! At a half a kilometer it is surprising what you see and it’s not about detail. Full Article.

Obstacle Racing Magazine 
Hey guys, big weekend coming up with Spartan in Sydney, the Stampede in the Barossa AND the Warrior Challenge down at Lake Mountain in Victoria. Bet there are a few tired bodies tapering at the moment. Thought it was a good time to talk a bit about lats and body positioning for power AND speed.With obstacles lats are really going to cop a pounding and they will be really strong. Just have to be aware of how they relate to shoulder positioning as well breathing and running technique. For speed and power for your race your mechanics want to be stacked nicely, head over shoulders, shoulders over hips etc. Full Article.


Obstacle Racers say NO to ITB Pain
Obstacle Racing Magazine 
With the Spartan Beast and Ultra Beast coming up in December, training loads are increasing. And with kilometers going up we just want to be aware of the potential risk factors that can silently sneak up on us out on course. We all want to get through the season in one piece right, so ITB issues can be one of the scariest things for you as a racer for a couple of reasons: One because it can put you out, but also because there is almost a shroud of mystery associated with ITB problems. So this week I just want to introduce you to a few facts about ITB because in the next Obstacle Racing Magazine I want to explore it in detail for you. Full Article.

How running can be easy and not cause you injuries! 
Running Mums Australia
People who think about the topic of running, often follow it up with thoughts of injury. I mean after all over 70% of runners each year are sidelined through injury at some time or other, but by putting a stop to my own injuries FOR GOOD, and really getting to the forefront of explaining the premise of injury-free and effortless running, i must declare that it’s closer to 99% of runners who run in a way that puts them at risk of injury! The good news is, becoming a injury-free and effortless runner is truly easy and doesn’t have to take weeks, I’ve seen it first hand take ten minutes or less! And I myself, after 5 years of chronic shin splints, ITB syndrome and other running-related injuries. Full Article.

Get to the next level with obstacles: Target Front Chain Muscles
Obstacle Running Magazine 
Hey Racers, been a big week. Everyone is getting out and about and it’s been hard treating sore muscles around the cuts and scabs from Spartan the week before! Worth the short term pain for the fun though and we all know what they say about scars. I mentioned last week that I wanted to talk about body positioning and it’s really important to be aware of your own structure and how that relates to speed, endurance and power. For speed and endurance you want to be stacked perfectly, head over shoulders, shoulders over hips, hips over feet. Same thing for power but the thing is for most people when you’re pushing over obstacles. Full Article.

Tackle Your Shoulder Pain 
Obstacle Running Magazine 
Hi guys, Hope you’ve been smashing it at training this week. Last time we spoke I was talking about understanding your myofascial trigger points and how important that is for mechanics as well as strength, power and endurance. Today I wanted to talk practically about how that can play out because as obstacle racers we have all experienced symptoms of trigger point pain both during and after our races, whether we know it or not. This week I met an obstacle racer, Sean Beehag, who is just starting out. He has long term goals of joining the obstacle course racing league. Full Article.


The Multiple Consequences of Tight Muscles
Obstacle Racing Magazine 
Hey Guys, Paul from RIF REV here for some Thursday evening running right tips! Awesome to see Will and the crew doing the ‘burpee mile’ at Kilkare Beach. Search for hurt alright and probably a really good continuation of our discussion last week about how muscles behave when pushed to the limit. Obstacle racing is going to test you in every way. My motto is always ‘know your enemy’ because it ain’t always the guy next to you on the ropes! Your biggest challenge can come from within and not just in the mental sense. When I’m talking to other obstacle racers. Full Article.


Body Leader of the Month - Andrew 

While riding 100 km's a day for a month or participating in an 8 hour adventure race might not be every-ones cup of tea, our Body Leader of the Month Andrew can't get enough of these challenges.
