Pilates

Adding a little pilates to your life can bring huge benefits to your running, especially if you’re injury prone

Pilates may seem like a fairly recent phenomenon but it has been around for almost a century. It was back in the 1920s that German born Joseph Pilates and his wife Clara emigrated to America and subsequently opened their gym in New York City. Using what was then called ‘contrology’, they instructed people – primarily dancers recovering from injury – to perform concentrated, slow movements to work their deep, inner muscles.

Initially using specifically designed exercise equipment to help rehabilitation after injury, the novel techniques have gradually been adapted and became known as the pilates method after Joseph’s death in 1967. It was dancer Alan Herdman who, after studying at the studio and realising the potential the techniques had to prevent and treat dance injuries, brought pilates to the UK in 1970, where he has been teaching the method ever since.

About Women’s Running

The weather is glorious, which means it’s time to push our training to another level. This issue, we take on the ultra: and it turns out us mere mortals can take this on! If you can already run 5K (just 5K!) we’ve uncovered a training plan that will take you up to 50K in 30 weeks. We also speak to our inspirational cover star Kerry, on making the journey from non-runner to running coach, and all with a smile on her face. And we’ve got a bumper review section this month, from bras for big boobs to the latest running shoes from all the top brands. Our big issue this month is equality: the more we run, the more we discover inequality in running – different distances and prize money for women (and by ‘different’ we don’t mean better…), and certainly different treatment. Pick up our June issue to discover what’s going on behind the scenes, and how we can work together to bridge the gender running gap.
