Thanks coach JZ! My 10k time was better than expected and no injuries. Learning about foot strike, arm movement, breathing and running efficiently from you these last few months made a difference. I used them all at different points during my run.
I am a proponent of running by feel, though it’s probably because I haven’t bought all of the fancy gear. In other sports, I experienced a real satisfaction when I know that I am doing something well just by the feel of it. When it doesn’t feel right then it is usually time to make a slight adjustment. I likely need more practice or more conditioning to get a feel of what gear I am running in. Looking forward to it.
