Hey brains-trust. I know it's stating the obvious but all the advice given on this forum FREAKING WORKS !!!!
I've shortened my stride, channeling the Japanese guy in the Slow Running video. I've trained myself not to land on my heels .... something I've done since the 80s when I was told it was bad to land flat-footed or on your toes. I'm doing the dynamic warm up routine pre-run & the post-run stretches. I'm running even slower (if that was possible) to the point that my walking & running pace on the treadmill is the same. I'm running tall .... as if there's a string pulling the top of my head up. I'm trying to make my feet hit the ground when they're directly under my body but I'm not sure I'm completely succeeding there .... so in summary there is a shit-ton of technical info running through my head during my runs. And I'm so looking forward to the day when I'm outside, this new running style isn't new any more ... and it's more enjoyable info in my head like "look at that cloud" and "what a cute dog" and "check out the buns on that!!!".
