What can the running world learn from a coach heavily involved in equestrian and adventure sports? Tune in to the latest Run Culture podcast to find out! In this episode, I had the pleasure of chatting with Marianne Davies, a senior coach developer with UK coaching and a PhD candidate in skill acquisition and ecological dynamics in equestrian and adventure sports. Marianne's expertise in these disciplines brings a fresh perspective to the running world. During our conversation, we delved into the difference between perfect technique and adaptive technique in running. Marianne explained how a rigid focus on perfect technique might hinder runners from adapting to different environments and challenges. Instead, she emphasized the importance of developing an adaptive technique that allows runners to adjust and respond to the ever-changing dynamics of their surroundings. We also explored the significance of the athletic skills model in running. Marianne highlighted the value of variability in training, explaining how exposing runners to a range of different conditions and demands can enhance their overall athletic skills. By incorporating diverse training stimuli, runners can become more versatile and better equipped to handle various race scenarios.
