I seem to have acquired some bad running habits, but I think I’m getting my form back now. Instead of landing just ahead of the heel and pushing off with my calves, I was… I don’t know quite what I was doing, slapping my feet down like a duck and pushing off with my knees or something. Whatever it was wasn’t doing me any good.
The other bad habit was getting into the mindset of having to run without stopping, which was preventing me advancing much. I have started with the run/walk/run/walk thing, which has enabled me to expand my route and get a lot more exercise.
Plus I have bought some nice new shorts. 🙂
