Well, I've made the decision.....to try again! Here I am 52yrs old, hypertensive and never managed to run more than 7kms without injury! Most of the time I spent trying to run was with teeth gritted, just trying to finish! BUT.....I have this urge to run! I had finally given up trying and then I read your book. I now realise how little strength I have in my feet and legs and, because of this my form is more like a crab in reverse! So, here goes....strength training and trying to improve form by some short barefoot runs (very short at the moment!) before starting phase 1 of the programme. One question though - if I am doing the drills, how often and how long should I spend on them? Ultimate goal (dream) - to run a 50miler! Oops, maybe I'm aiming a little high HaHa! Oh well back to training...watch this space!
