  • Mizuno Hitogami 2 Running Shoe Review
    The Good Meaghan: The Hitogami has been my favorite shoe from the Mizuno line-up. I even preferred this model over the super hyped Sayonara – mainly due to fit. The Hitogami hugs my foot nicely. It’s snug but doesn’t feel restricting. I typically prefer a little more cushion, but for... read more

  • What is Over Striding? Distance Running vs Sprint Technique
      I’m often asked about the concept of over striding. Simply put, this can be broadly described as being when a runner strikes the ground too far ahead of their body, effectively applying the brakes with each stride. While common advice is to try to ‘land under your hips’, how... read more

  • The Secret of Winter Running
    The Secret of Winter Running Guest post by Joshua Niforatos from Vagabond Running I am often asked why I run outside in -13 degree weather, or in hurricane-like conditions.

  • Adductor (Groin) Stretch for Runners & Triathletes
      Compared to multidirectional sports for example rugby, basketball, hockey or netball, with all their turning, cutting and changes of direction, the repetitive action of running is very linear.

  • Running Technique: Stride Width, Shin Splints & ITB Syndrome
    Stride width varies so much from runner to runner, and is one of the subtleties of running form that is difficult to re-train by simply trying to ‘run differently’… most people over-correct! Rather, I usually see the best stride width improvements in athletes who focus on gluteal strengthening and lateral... read more

    I’ve written previously about running cadence and the use of digital metronomes in helping to coach subtle increases in stride frequency at a given speed, and this improve stride length. This primarily helps to stop a runner from over striding, as well as gently improving limb stiffness. Working on cadence... read more
