HEALTHY LIVING HACK..
Get up, dress up & workout even when traveling.
If you can’t access a gym, there are lots of online workouts and apps which vary in ability and duration. Even a short ten minute blast will make you feel good.
I was awake at 3.30am this morning with jet lag and thought about skipping my workout but I know this wouldn’t help me.
It’s the small consistent activities that fill the bigger picture.
Even though I was tired I knew that even a short workout would make me feel better for the rest of the day 🙌
If you need motivation to work out grab a buddy and make a plan so neither of you can back out in the morning 💃🏻
I tried out a new app @8fit this morning because the Gym @mgmgrand was packed. I did a fifteen minute workout on that and then did 20 minutes (high resistance) on the cross trainer.
You think you know how you run? I don't think you know.
Self-assessments of foot contact type were collected from over 2M visitors to runnersworld.com. Data was collected anonymously and consequently is unverifiable. The demographics of survey respondents was compared to subject characteristics from 100 papers on running biomechanics published in 2013 and 2014. Self-assessments of foot contact type were compared with 240 fps video in 70 subjects running on a treadmill. Sagittal plane video have also collected at numerous marathon and half-marathon events between 2012 and 2016. The videos were analysed using custom software to identify discrete foot contact type, foot contact angle, contact time, step time and other kinematic variables.
Image 1 shows data for self-reported and Image 2 shows data for observed foot contact types. High speed video reveals that most (94%) of runners make have a heel-toe contact sequence. Mid-foot contacts were observed in 4% and forefoot-heel in 2%. Only 8 of the observed subjects had a “pure” forefoot contact without subsequent grounding of the heel. In contrast, only 32% of
wear testers reported themselves as “heel strikers”. Comparing these reports with high speed video treadmill running in a subsample of 70 subjects, it is safe to assume that self-diagnosed foot contact type is unrelated to the actual foot contact. 😂
