It seems that my problem is the backswing of my legs. They don't go straight back, they tend to cross the center line of my back and go off to the opposite side, sometime a lot, resulting in an inefficient bowleggedness, unnecessary hip rotation, and presumably, a shorter stride. Maybe it's the fastest way to reach maximum turnover for me? I don't know, but I'm going to work on it. Sprinting down the stripe and concentrating on keeping the legs moving in a consistent plane on each side is what I did today. I actually ran faster than I intended.
Saucony Ride trainers on
400m warmup, stretches, drills
4 x 200m - 28,28, 28, 29 (walk 200 in between)Doesn't look like much but was feeling the pump after the third one. Good thing I got on the track today, I've enjoyed visiting the Pie Kitchen everyday for breakfast, pie and ice cream, 'breakfast of losers.'
