This week was 56 miles of running and 10,000 yards of swimming -- training log is here.
First full week of focusing on my posture. I *sort* of added in workouts this week, meaning that I did some faster running on the track. However, my goal wasn’t to run a specific split or a specific effort level, but rather to practice holding my posture and form correctly while running faster.
It definitely seems to be helping. The hamstring was a bit “wonky” on Tuesday, then better on Friday and a total non issue on the weekend. Things aren’t perfect yet (I still lose my gait at times, and when I do, then my foot starts hurting), but they’re getting there.
The interesting thing is how much MENTAL work the form change takes. I particularly noted it while running with others. I can hold my correct form when running by myself, but I tend to forget it when running and chatting with others. And I can only hold it for a certain amount of time before getting mentally tired and needing to reset.
All things to work on.
