It's not a pipe dream, it's a realistic goal. My friend Jae Gruenke, Feldenkrais Practitioner and founder of The Balanced Runner™ has developed an online running camp that can get you there.
Jae has been helping runners from beginner to Olympian for almost 20 years, and her Online Running Technique Camp has an impressive track record of success, including an endorsement from William Sichel, an ultramarathoner who has set over 400 Scottish, British, and World Records.
"Working with Jae and learning the Feldenkrais method has helped me extend my career as an elite runner. We can all discover new ways of moving that are more efficient and involve less effort. This translates to running faster and staying healthy no matter what your age or ability level!"
Jen Rhines, three-time Olympian
You can read the stories of some former camp participants here:
How Steve Got Back to Running at Age 68 (after a decade off due to injury)
How Isabelle Recovered from IT Band Syndrome After 7 Years
You can also read about some additional campers here and try a brief taster audio lesson.
And in case you're wondering about how it's even possible to learn running technique online, another of her camp participants said, "I think this is the only online exercise thing I've done that seems to work. I'd say the way [Jae] composes the experience with the audio and the video is easy to do without getting all bound up in the logistics of it."
The camp is six weeks start to finish, and you can start it the day you register. Get the prices (which are very reasonable), the content, and all the other relevant info here, as well as the link to register.
If you're currently too injured to run, don't count yourself out! You won't be the only one. Many participants in the past haven't been able to run more than a couple of minutes at the beginning of the camp, yet were running several miles on a regular basis by the end. Jae's website has guidelines on whether you can do the camp with your particular injury, so go ahead and take a look. After all, you're probably someone who needs it more--not less--than folks who are still running.
For more than 15 years, Jae has been helping runners from beginner to Olympian learn to work with their bodies so that running feels the way it was meant to.
She has distilled that experience into The Balanced Runner System™ Online Camp, which uses the Feldenkrais Method of Movement Education® to help you not only understand what you need to do to run well, but actually feel how to do it.
Whether you're a beginning runner or a world-class professional, a parkrun regular or an ultramarathoner, a masters runner or a high-schooler on a cross-country team, you'll feel your running significantly improve.
