Running Again

I’m going to try running again. A few months ago I started a Couch to 5K program. I ended up hurting my knee. Part of it was definitely my weight. But, the other part, and I’m thinking the more important contributing factor, was my technique. I was listening to the 4 Feet Running podcast and Dan mentioned forefoot running. Add this tidbit to the article that I reported about on Fat 2 Fit Radio about barefoot running and you get that I know squat about proper running technique. A quick Google search later and I found a great video explaining heel strike technique and forefoot running. It’s more than just what part of the foot strikes the pavement. I’m going to attempt to get back on the road on my “off days” working out.

Wish me luck!

    Russ: Actually it’s Nik who’s been talking about and doing the forefoot running technique. I don’t know jack about good running form myself… 🙂

    Dan: I started listening to the latest show and only heard you mention it once. Later I listened to the whole show and got the full story.

    Great show.
