As I headed to the TM, I was thinking of what a valuable resource videos can be for training advice (thanks Janae!) . And so I decided today would be THE PERFECT day for me to get some help from my readers...all 5 of them...by taking some footage and posting it here for expert analysis.
Here it is! Maybe you can give me some feedback on what to correct so this knee/hip/arm thing can get taken care of. =D
Well, hopefully someone was able to review that and trouble-shoot for me. Special thanks to Nathan, the 5 year-old cameraman in training.
So. On a more serious note...
One of my more paranoid concerns in running is the potential to develop a stress fracture. Here's a couple of questions to you: Are you scared of potential injury? and What do you do to prevent injury? I know I am not doing enough, but here's what I am doing:
- Stretching (very minimal- maybe 5-10 minutes a day after running)
- Rolling with my redneck foam roller (I try to do this daily, but more like 4-5 days a week)
- Eating high calcium foods (like lowfat cottage cheese, drinking milk as a recovery drink, leafy greens)
