Sorry not blogged for a while, I've been looking after a growing practice! I have been running though - I ran the Cancer Research Winter Run 10k in London this weekend with some friends and really enjoyed it (I ran it in 51 mins and 20 seconds - very pleased with myself!).
The Winter Run made me think: in order to keep going over longer distances it really helps to keep the head lightly balanced on top of the spine. In this connection I re-read an article from The Irish Times by Alexander Teacher and research fellow at Manchester University, Dr Seán Carey. Your personal running style is entrenched in habit as much as everything else we do and can be hard to change... As Dr Carey says, you need to become "a running detective" and really start to notice what it is you do when you run. To find out what the whole story, click here. Happy running!
