Roll on Round 2 

Transition to mid foot strike

Posted: 25/03/2015 at 19:11

There is an old saying, "If is is not broken, don't try and fix it!" Is the extra speed worth the niggles?

Mid foot striking is generally thought to be easier on you than heel striking, but if you have been quite happily heel striking for some time then why change? 

If you are convinced that mid-foot is the way to go then I am thinking a longer transition period may be necessary?

I have the feeling I am in for a baptism by fire with this one !!!!

The MCN events that I have done were in March and bloody freezing! More trial by ice, snow and wind 

Please help me achieve my goal - I really don't want to quit

I keep reading threads that are along the lines of, "Why can't I do all my sessions hard?" And this is the reason! Because you go bang and become ill!

You are supposed to run for enjoyment not to hammer yourself. As above, recover from your cold, slow down, take it easier, an increase in pace will come! Try and run at a pace where you can still breath through your nose! Not easy I know.

October is a long way away, there is plenty of time. In about two weeks you will be ready to go again! The weather is getting better, you will be ready to get going and hammer yourself again...... but don't

I have just bought some Saucony Xodus 5's very like my Saucony Kinvara's but I have not had a chance to test them properly; they should be good and I feel well padded and supported.

I didn't think there was a lot of navigation required????, i have no experience yet of navigating with compass! Getting worried now!

It is not a navigation exercise; I have not had a problem and I can get lost on a 10k! 

Is this training ok for a 10k

I don't think he's that clever.

what does he do? coach cricketers on running? Of course he isn't going to be a fan of any kind of slow distance run - cricketers either sprint or stand around in their pyjamas rubbing their balls.

He sounds like a right tool.

Thinking of enhancing your performance?

Supplements, what are they and what do they do to you?
