Project
The aim of my PhD is to study runners with achilles tendinopathy and measure tendon and ankle joint stiffness, responses to exercise interventions and quantify changes in strength, stiffness, running economy and rehab outcome measures.
Project
This project will explore the coach education experiences and learning behaviours of high performance distance running coaches. The study will also examine their engagement with sports science and medicine and their interaction with a multi-disciplinary team.
