Someone posted here a few days ago that if you lift your knees more, you'll get more of a momentum and rhythm going. Since my normal running style is shuffling I thought I'd give it a go.
Well, on Monday's run I tried to lift my knees more. Bloody hell. It was hard work! I couldn't sustain it for long but I did get the legs "circling" which I think is the point. So my run was shuffle, shuffle, lift knees, shuffle, shuffle, lift knees....... you get the idea.
But yesterday every inch of my body ached! I mean everywhere! My back, sides, ankles, tummy(!) everything! What's that about? I guess I was using different muscles than I normally do.
Was due out today but since I'm still a bit achey have decided to give myself an extra rest day!
To those of you who do run with your knees up I salute you!
