for your individual biomechanics

My wife on the Nike Internationalist Femme other hand has been more or less unable to run regularly for several years. Chronic hip pain and foot pain have been her nemeses (you can read more about her story here). Running more miles is not going to make her faster, it’s going to make her hurt. She’ll break, and won’t be able to run at all. We had Asics Gel lyte 5 Femmeto address the underlying mechanical problems, and yes, footwear, to get her right enough to even be able to run a few miles without pain. She’s now able to run 2-3 times per week, 3 miles at a time due to a combo of strengthening exercise prescribed by a doc and Hoka One One Bondi 2shoes prescribed by my friend Nate. The Hokas are the only shoes we have tried that allow her to run without foot pain, and we have tried a lot. As a minimalist, it pained me to discover that an ultra-cushioned shoe was the answer, but having her be able to run is more important to me than validating my personal preferences in footwear.My wife is now at a point where running more might be possible, and increased speed might result, but it took a heck of a long time to get here. Downplaying the role of biomechanics and footwear because your experience www.ronbell.co.uk is that they don’t matter much makes little sense.So, I’ll finish by saying that yes, your opinions and experiences are important, and you should share them. We all learn from hearing about works for others, and it lets us have productive debates. But, be careful in thinking that what you have observed or experienced is broadly generalizable. It may be, it may not be. Sometimes you may just have to swallow you pride and recognize that Hokas will let your wife run without pain. And that makes for a happy household ??I don’t know if the person who said that to get faster, you have to run more was me or…a certain dude who owns more shoes than I do, but it’s a sentiment that I agree with. However, it’s not that simple, of course (it never is!). It’s not about “just running,” but good training, which is multifaceted. Part of that www.romuslus.fr is balancing progressive load without overload, part of it is doing the correct training for the distance, fitness level, and past experience, and part of it is staying healthy enough to put in the training. Form and footwear is, of course, a big part of that last component. There are no shortcuts, and you won’t simply get faster by changing shoes or form…you have to put in the work no matter, though obviously you have to do what you need to do to allow yourself to put in the work.I do, however, have a hypothesis that running more and doing speedwork will help you to develop a running form that is efficient for your individual biomechanics. I don’t have a lot of actual research to back it up, rather, it’s just my thoughts based on the knowledge that our bodies are adaptable, as well as lazy (we try to expend the least amount Nike Air Max 2017 Femme of energy possible, that is, we learn to become more efficient). I do know of one study that deliberately changed people’s natural form to Pose running and they became less efficient, but it was a small, short-term study, so take it for what it’s worth.As far as actually tweaking form, I also think we have Nike Air Pegasus 89 Femme to be careful not to go too far to the other side. It seems to be much more common for new runners to overstride, but I think that just telling people to shorten their stride can potentially lead some people to understride (assuming we define overstriding and understriding as a stride longer or shorter than the most efficient stride length for one’s individual biomechanics). It feels too much like just telling people to forefoot strike without any other considerations, and the fallout of that was we saw a lot of people still Nike Air Max 270 Homme overstriding, only on an unnaturally plantarflexed foot. Relying on cadence is tough too, since that seems to vary with pace (as well as with the individual). I would tend to go with the running more thing here too, since I know for a fact my form has changed going from a 70-80 mpw 5000m runner to a 90-100+Nike Air Presto Homme  mpw half-marathoner/marathoner, but that is, of course, anecdotal (I’d also assume it changed significantly from when I was a 20 mpw high schooler, but that I couldn’t tell you for sure). It also brings up the question as to what kind of form changes we see with specialization at different distances, even within the same athlete…and whether the changes I saw in myself were due to changes in efficiency at different speeds or due to changes within my muscles themselves (different muscles becoming stronger/tighter).
