No. I was just trolling around last night and I saw a lot on lifting, but nothing on running. Figured why not?Did someone ask for this?
As for my stride and form, I think I just lucked into it because right when I started track I was told they were good. However, what I see from a lot of other people is lengthening the stride when tired or when trying to run faster. I was always told off by my coaches because I would do it towards the end of my races when I would be gassed. It is mostly a mental thing. As for tempo, I am usually breathing on the third step when I run. That's just me. Also, I find myself sometimes saying "Bob to your head, rag...top" from Bombs Over Bahgdad in my head. Every word was a step. I was warming up one time and found out that it is perfect for my speed...
ebolamonkey, the fastest marathon winners run at closer to a 4:40 pace... It's insane.
Grizzly, how are you training right now? After not running regularly for years, I was dying running one 7 minute mile. After a couple months of cycling between 5k runs, 2 mile speed runs, a few splits of short bursts of speed with jogging thrown in and mile runs after working out to punish the body, I am coming in at < 13:30 for two miles, or < 9:40 for 1.5. I still don't consider myself quite ready, but should cut it and have me ready for OCS.
