"Lean with your heals not with your hips and it will be your legs trying to catch up with you." - Riley Jubal (Sports Therapist)
I'm glad today was a xtraining day. My whole family ran today! Yeah! But it took forever to get out the door! Three dogs don't help. We finally made it but I was only able to do a few miles (had peace knowing there was more to this day then these three miles). I did get to work on the technique of what the therapist told me, "Lean with your heals not with your hips and it will be your legs trying to catch up with you." It does feel different. I'm gonna try that for awhile and see what happens. He said when you lean like that you don't damage your hips as bad because when you run otherwise its putting pounds of weight with every step on your hips. Can you tell I was picking his brain :-)
I went to palates class today and I didn't do good. I could barely do the "easy" ones. I was trying to encourage myself the whole time. It was as if I never did it before and then worse than that! There were times I just laid back and stretched.....I have no further thoughts on that.
Today was a good day because Kailah was out there and so our whole family ran together and it just felt right.
