I'm just gonna go ahead and say this is effing awesome. Best time on this route by several minutes (not really pushing time, but there you have it); accidentally did a Week 2 session instead of Week 1 (which is 1:30 run intervals instead of 1:00) and did the first 2 1:30 intervals fully before having to cut the rest short; and it was raining pretty steadily, so it felt really good to just look up and smile into the sky. Simple pleasures! :) Let me ask you runners something about the flow of your running motion: do you run with your hips, or with your thighs? When I was in marching band eons ago, the point was no never let your upper body move or twist or bounce, and all movement was done as a sort of glide from leg to leg: you never really had a chance to "rest" on your hips or butt muscles before your other leg took over. I'd noticed that I've been using this smooth leg-to-leg movement now that I feel stronger. Is this the proper way to run? Please let me know if I'm on the wrong track because it's a very different feeling than using hips to push from leg to leg. Feedback please! And good evening to you all, who are so inspiring in your posts. :) http://j.mp/K9ijNh.
