Well done Dan.... how are the feet :-)



Feet are battered, but it"s the legs that hurt.  Stairs are a bit of an issue at the moment :D

Was in North London at the weekend (unfortunately the install took longer than projected and I didn"t make it into Central London  :-[ ) and when I saw the day that was in it I did think it would be very hard out here.

Well done to

Was meant to be running this April, but because of a few niggling injuries and going self-employed soon, I"ve decided to defer my entry to 2011.

Anyway, this is an interesting article:  http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/8483401.stm

Some of it is obvious, but it just reinforces a lot of what I was saying about heel-striking being "unnatural" and not necessarily good for the body.

That damn heal-striking.

I"ve been going on about that for years, and finally now people are starting to stand up and take notice.  ;)

I would also like to point out that my reasons for not exercising properly are also down to going self employed.  If it"s good enough for Dan, it"s good enough for me.   :D

"... He said that it was also very interesting that "many of the world"s best athletes run with a forefoot strike". ..."

I do actually run with a forefoot strike - but it would be unfair on all the other competitors if I competed and won everything.

That"s my reason for not exercising properly covered I think.  ;D

I"ve been on the PHA threads, and of course reading through the good threads on here.  Not been on yours yet, so will have a look now...

Ran 15 miles this morning - and my legs hurt now.  A friend of mine is a fitness instructor and marathon runner/triathlete and he"s put together a training plan for me.  It"ll either help me break my PB or kill myself trying.
