Beginner-calf pain-technique help please!

That's why your calves are sore. Your heel must 'kiss' the ground to release the muscle. Don't hold tension in your feet an ankles -it takes practice and is harder to do than you may think.

Don't try and lean, this will lead to bending at the waist with shoulders in front. There is no fixed lean in running -it's forward rotation


Running with a complete cruciate ligament tear

Posted: 25/03/2015 at 17:15

I have experience with this.

ACL rupture about 20 years ago when I played football. I was not a runner then.

Started running 8 years ago because I couldn't play sports with sharp stops and turns, like football and squash. Since then I have completed 7 marathons and an ultra-marathon amongst other shorter, faster races. I twisted it badly again 3 years ago in Toughguy because I didn't focus well enough when jumping into a ditch, so have stopped doing those too.

Bottom line is you can run successfully as long as you're aware of your shortcomings and are careful not to twist. I regularly do squats, lunges, balancing etc to keep the quads strong to help overall stability.

Long Run pacing....

I find the 'double your half and add 20' is within 2 mins for many of the runners at my club.

1. in training -train. Do not practice racing. There's a reason to run slow -google Jack Daniels training videos to get the answers

Agree with previous comment - do you want to run a marathon or a half marathon?

I would advise ditching the half and replace with long training run.

As above. 9 weeks training will leave you 6-7 weeks of build-up before a taper. You could adapt it to do a 10, 12, 14, 16, 14, 18, 20 + 2 week taper

Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury/recovery - anyone else suffered?

Posted: 16/02/2015 at 16:05

I had a football injury 20 years ago, and at the time didn't think it was too major. However, over the course of the next year or two, it kept giving way and would swell up again.

Anyway, it turn out (from an MRI a couple of years ago) that I did rupture my ACL -so for the last 20 years have been ACL defincient in my right knee. I can no longer do any sports involving twisting or sudden change of direction, but running is OK if I'm careful (done 7 marathons and an Ultra in last 8 years).

You can continue without having surgery

Buy Newton running shoes to improve speed/ impact on heel ? Which one?

Why would a pair pf Newtons make you run faster, or even run differently?


Heel Pad Syndrome

Posted: 23/01/2015 at 11:40

Thanks Phil. Mines more a bruise/dull ache in the centre of the heel, rather than a sharp pain to the front -no tenderness in the PF at all.

Planning on 2-3 weeks no running and see where I am from there.
