They're of the opinion that is mentioned above, your foot strike doesn't matter, It's stride length on overall form that matter, with quiet landings being another good aim. They also mention that faster shorter distances tends to mean more of a forefoot strike and longer distances mean more of a heal strike. They posted a few clips of Pro athletes at Kona that showed heel striking somewhere.
My physio agrees with this too and it's nice to get back to the "just run" vibe that I had when I started out.
I've now managed 3 days exercise in a row, I may slowly be getting back into things.
I'm very tired and sore but I remember this from last time so no excuse to stop. I lost 1lb last week so that's a little step in the right direction. I have also just discovered that you can now connect fitness devices to the WeightWatches app so it works out your activity points for you. I see Garmin is on the list so I will have a go at that later.
I also feel I can confess here to my guilty please, I'm off to see Jillian Michaels on her UK Live tour at the O2 this Wednesday. If that's doesn't kick my motivation back into action nothing will. Hubby has bravely agreed to come with me.
My day light alarm is working well too, I'm going to keep getting up at the same time weekday mornings even if I don't currently have an exercise to do as I need to get back into the routine.
Hopefully this post will also work as a little motivational kick next time I'm feeling down.
It looks like everyone else on here is cracking on well and we're all set for a good 2015
