Columba - you are very lucky your son is spending so much time working on you. It works both ways, you have done what has been asked, so I'm sure that makes him very happy too.
They did say I could swim or cycle, but as I do neither, don't think I'm about to start!
John Bateman - I think when we run by ourselves, at a pace that is comfortable there usually isn't too much that will go wrong. It's when we are slowing ourselves down to accommodate others because we want company, or going too fast like in a race, and we haven't done any speed work, that's where the problems step in,
Torque Steer - I think I'd rather just run a little slower and not have to run so fast in the other bits!
Another thing to think about. I was always told to keep my arms relaxed with fingers brushing my shorts for marathon running. That if you held your arms high your shoulders would tire and you would tie up. Now I watch the world class African women running, holding their arms up high and it definitely doesn't look like it is slowing them down!
