  1. I've done a fair amount of work in this space...heck, I even wrote a module on running technique that is/was used in the Rec Running Coaching courses for Athletics Australia over the last 4-5 years!! Anyway, I agree that many people over complicate what they think and describe as 'good' or 'proper' running technique, when it really boils down to how well you manage and control your torso, which is basically the region of your body from your hips to your chest. Here are the cues I advise people aim for: Run tall Keep a high and light cadence That's right, only 2. Of co
  2. Tucks his singlet into his shorts...on a training run...
  3. https://protriathletes.org/pto-2020-championship-lineup/ A cracking field - this race is going to be amazing to watch.
  4. I tipped this!! My next prediction, unfortunately, is that the Tokyo Olympics will be cancelled...
  5. BTW...I saw a couple of months ago that NZ athlete Hayden Wilde ran 13:51 for 5000m track race...
  6. Is a 4 month delay - Oct to Feb - really going to make any difference to a) whether people can travel internationally, and b) whether it is actually safe to hold a mass participation event??
  7. These ITU guys train a LOT (check his Strava) and have some wheels on their feet...an 8:11min track 3000m. Video here.
  8. They are good at synchronised drills...but can they run??
  9. Swap Wed and Thur would be much better. Only a day between your two session workouts is too short.
  10. You are missing the key points that the article highlights. Foot landing is a result body / torso position. If you maintain a good posture, run tall, and have a quick, light cadence then your foot landing will find its own position, which the last point says...don't focus on your feet. This article articulates all the things I teach in running technique sessions.
  11. I'm not 50 yet (next month!!) but running is my primary / main sport these days. Despite an 18+ month running streak, I am humble enough to realise that each run might be my last of my 'between injuries' streak!! As mentioned, I have found that strength training in recent times has been crucial to consistency, together with consistency itself. Consistency begets consistency. The hardest part has been striking an 'optimal' balance between running and strength work, so I can get some worthwhile training done in each, which comes down to periodisation and relative prioritisation of running a
  12. Been using it for several years, primarily for coaching. I like it. Great app. Doesn't have the metrics and other features of TP, but excellent for doing programs and reviewing sessions. Much cheaper than TP.

    Speedy Week at parkrun

    You should show your colours in a Parkrun somewhere. Training the house down. See how your form is.
  14. Hot / cold / whatever feels best. I think the best use of your time is putting your feet up and relaxing. Focus on the first 99% fundamentals before worrying about the 1%'ers.

    The 1% stuff

    Most/many people who worry about the 1%'ers would be better off spending their time and energy doing the other 99% a bit better. This includes sleep.
