Joe,Good summertime images. Now the question: My body-always in a constant state of rehab- made some good progress-especially on the right side, but my left knee, the one I had lateral meniscus surgery on, is beginning to act up again. After running for a mile or so, I begin to get pain on flexion and extension. Any thoughts on addressing this? I have no pain on impact. Martin
Good to have you back buddy...very thought provoking images/slides/information...Thanks...PAT
Jack remember because of your age & relative level of function, you are already in uncharted territory my friend. Bowerman's performance planning paradigm- a tough workout followed by an easy (or series of easy) workouts holds even more weight as we age. I find unloading days via sprint training on the stationary bike to be beneficial. Respect that articular cartilage! That, and I really believe good running mechanics help protect the body from injury & wear & tear. Be sure to mix in a good amount of Frans' drills; they keep the mechanics sound. One more thing...the pelvis is the body's primary shock absorber in running & jumping. Keep it powerful.
