I have looked at videos of myself running a lot! Is it weird I find it so entertaining to watch my feet? This video goes into slo-mo about 3 seconds in, it's not long.
Seriously, get someone to slo-mo your running, I promise you will learn something from it :)
Why did my bone break down on me?
How can I keep this from happening again?
These are the questions that make me toss and turn.
I have shared before my Vitamin D was low...16. I tried several things to up that, including:
- orange juice with calcium
- a new D supplement, which I take at different times each day
- more dark leafy greens
- take fish oil
- eat eggs a few times a week (this killed me at first, now I do it often)
- try to be outdoors at least a few times a week in the sun
My running form is an issue.
That fascinating video shows some weakness in how I land and push off. I am still not landing mid foot like I should be. I was going to retire the Altra Torin's in this video, because they have a lot of miles on them, but I am glad I was filmed in them first. My form is actually better in the lighter shoes. My running video in my Brooks Ghosts (made a different day) revealed more heel striking.
It's so hard to change your gait. I am trying to search for info to help. I admit, it does seem a bit overwhelming trying to learn all over again.
Obviously I am NOT an expert, but my downhill running was the first problem I self evaluated after my stint in the boot.
|Good times! Not...|
Looking at the video made me realize---> balance work and ankle strengthening is much needed.
I have been slacking at doing my shoulder presses and arm curls balancing on foot, but I need to make that a standard occurrence.
So this clumsy old gal will be trying to work on it.
Thoughts on how to change your gait.
Ever try to change something in your form?
Do you do any balance work?
Have any vitamin D and/or calcium tips?
Happy Trails to you,
