Running Form Analysis

“I met Mike in early 2018 when he took a series of fantastic pictures at a “Strictly on tour” fund-raising event I was part of. We met again in April when he was taking the event photographs for the Loughborough Half Marathon.

In conversation he explained the running analysis high speed video and still photography work he provides to runners of all standards. I was incredibly curious what this experience would provide me with.”

“Mike made the filming a simple and enjoyable session. It was a quick, easy session and Mike explained exactly what he’d be doing, his locations and what he wanted me to do. We made videos at various running speeds to match my main events.

Later that day I had access to an online area where the still pictures were immediately available for me to review. There was also the first part of a detailed report explaining the benefits (and constraints) of analysing the still images. Immediate mark-ups of some images showed me areas of my running form that I was not totally aware of.

Over the next day Mike had produced detailed mark up of the videos, which were available in the on-line portal he made for me. This mark up showed many areas of body shape, posture and the effect these had on overall running form. The report was filled out much more and offered some observations that could be very helpful for my training team.

If you are a runner of any standard I would strongly recommend that you have at least one set of these analyses. There is so much to learn that could help you improve your form, speed and hopefully keep away from running injuries”
