Running

Im frustrated with my times this year with running...ugh!! I have been thinking about ways I can get myself faster. Maybe its body mechanics? Im not a good leaner as they say you are supposed to do with running. I feel like Im going to fall flat on my face!!

I have also done interval training, hill training, you name it I've done it!!

The thing I notice the most when I run is that my whole upper torso tenses up. I have always done this and am trying to work on it.

I can honestly say I have been working on form alot lately. I have been looking at the Pose Method of running and have considered buying a pair of my first Vibrams!!! I am a forefront striker so I am on the right track. I actually had my boyfriend tape me running so I know where I stand and what I need to work on. I swing my legs, dont pick them up and kick back. I push off and leap!!!

Practice makes perfect!!!

  1. How many miles per week are you running on average? I owe all of my run gains this year purely through adding volume.

    Have you hit a plateau with volume?

  2. I do about 25-30 miles per week. This is with the plan that I am following. I have made a little improvement but it seems like I gained in swimming and lost in running!!! UGH!!

  3. That is really good volume! Is this up or down from previous seasons?
