I suppose it was about two miles tonight. Flat ground. Slow. It really felt great. My foot was fine right till the end when I could feel a little tightening in the base of my toes.
Here's the deal. I'm committing myself to shorter strides. I ran in the Piranhas. I thought about some cushioned shoes, but cushioning and support are not the problem. I've been overstriding with my right foot forever and it's time I get it right.
I stated earlier that one of my goals for 2011 is to really learn how to run. So here it starts. I'm going to exercise the discipline to limit my stride length and increase my turn over. I'm not worried about how fast or how far I'm running for now. I'm just going to lift my kness, swing my hips, plant my feet and experience the feedback.
The foot will just have to play along.
