Running doesn’t cause knee arthritis, not running does

Running doesn’t cause knee arthritis, not running does

Contrary to what people think, it’s not running that causes the bad knee pains, but running with poor form. Unfortunately when you pick up running in 30s and beyond, you are trying too hard as you’ve forgotten how to move naturally, the way you did as a child.

There is no rocket science to it. You need to slow down and work on your strength training. Be patient as you’ve taken decades to master the art of moving inefficiently and unnaturally. It’ll all soon come together.

Murdered the treadmill!

Murdered the treadmill!

I wrote this blog / email on 22.2.2008. Some numbers raise their head even when you don't know what they mean. And then somehow it all makes sense.

Pacing is very important. Just that most never learn how to do it. If you get it right, you’ve really cracked what most haven’t been able to. You'll become a far better runner.

Running: Losing My Religion

Running: Losing My Religion

I've firmly believed that running gives you an even playing ground, which strips all of their social status and financial standing. It brings to surface the true character of the individual. It's because of that it's given me the best of friends and introduced me to some awesome folks out there.

Be Selfish, Save Everyone

I agree with the statement but I don’t think it’s demeaning at all. If there was no ‘i’, there would be no ‘A-hole’. A lot of crap would be coming through the wrong orifice, which is a very common occurrence in today's self-righteous world. It’s a tough job for that ‘i’ person who sticks out and does all the dirty job for others.

Are you stretching ITB (Ilio-Tibial Band)?

Are you still stretching your ITB (Ilio-Tibial Band) till the cows and the rest come home? Just to burst your bubble, they don't really stretch much. 

A tweet today morning reminded me that there is a good reason that I have not been telling folks to stretch their ITB (Ilio-Tibial Band).

Run like the Eagle soars

Running is not about a destination or rat race. Its about the journey. We need to slow down and respect what ti has to offer instead of looking for instant gratification.
