      Cool. Also, a trick to help with getting the foot to land under the body and help prevent skidding the foot strike forward, is to do some bum kicks every now and then. ie lengthen the back swing. I got this of some ones you tube, I can't remember who.

      I don't have any issues with my foot being too far out in front. I'm pretty sure I'm landing direct under my center of mass but the bum kicks are a good reminder if I feel I'm going off the reservation :-)

      The photoshoot I was doing this Sunday was what the stress was about. No one seemed to know what they wanted but in the same breath it had to be perfect. I wasn't being paid, the clothes were blah, model was blah, it was more about the hair then makeup, lighting was dark meaning you couldn't see what makeup there was. So yeah, a bit negative towards the shoot in general.

      Hmm I wonder about those merrells. They sound too small a size for your feet, or the shoe is the 'right size' but the toe-box is too small. Were you wearing socks? You might have been rubbing the internal seams (or the rubber on the upper?).. Regardless, they dont do the job so I'd try and take them back for refund/credit/exchange.

      I have no idea why I offered you unsolicited advice. Sorry. I'm a bit fascinated with HR and HRV and the impact of health, sleep, running, etc. probably old news for you!

      No, no it's all good. I'm just as curious and all of the books that I've read on the subject all offer the same advice so I tried it out for a time but when a alarm wakes you up so goes up your HR so I figured there isn't much point to that. Would love to naturally wake up at 5am without a alarm but I can't see that happening any time soon!

      This is my default position but I tried my best to have compassion for others and I know my default position doesn't do me any favours. I think I did really well considering there were a bunch of snippy drunk queens laughing at me running, making comments etc. I didn't go over there and tell them my inner thoughts, I just let it go and kept on running. What else would I have achieved from the altercation?

      I use sleepmeter and sleep bot to track my sleep schedule. Will have a look at sleep cycle and see if it does anything that the other two don't. I'm at work now so if I don't run before work it won't happen! 5am or bust.
