Some thought-provoking links

I just posted these links on my other blog and a few comments on "bad advice". I don't think the NYT articles will be free for long...

Gina kolata on bad advice from health professionals

  1. Hey..I enjoyed the links...what a good bunch of useful information. I agree that each runner has his/her own way of running and that becomes their "natural" style....from that we can only incorporate suttle changes that "tweak" our form.

    In our life, the most important thing to remember is MODERATION....

  2. Exactly - the model that there is one best way to run assumes that our musculoskeletal designs do not vary among individuals.
