You know you're not normal when...

the physio doing your biomechanical analysis asks you if he can show the video to other physios for educational purposes.
...oh dear...
well basically (if i remember correctly) when my left leg is on the ground (and my right hip is flexing) my body leans to the left.
so the left glute i spend hours working on triggering never actually has a chance to trigger in that position.
and when i'm on my right leg my body swivels a bit (and left arm flays to the side).
apparently none of this is to do with the fact that my right foot points 30 degrees the wrong way thanks to a busted leg as a kid.
will get the word in a few weeks what i actually do about all this.

the most embarrasing thing from the video is that i look so damn skinny!
i've often joked that half my weight is below the waist (sexual pun intended) but maybe its more like 2/3rds!

will try and keep things nice and easy this week.
busy at work and have a niggle or 2 post WHM run - mainly a niggly left meniscus.
all quite manageable: just need to hop back on the bike.
need to get back to the stage where i'm running 60-70km/week riding 2-3hrs and feeling niggle free and strong!

monday: 14km flat 69.00
tuesday: nothing
wednesday: biomech analysis and MGTT run 19km hilly 2.15
thursday: xtraining (golf - i lost!!)
friday: 7km with the husky
saturday: MGTT 19km with tanky 2.30ish
sunday: nothing

wilsons prom in 3 weeks.

Your biomechanical assessment sounds like an absolute dog's breakfast. It's amazing that you manage to run as much as you do. I'm sure the Mellum boys will have a bit more to say!

I know the feeling. More than once my physio's or pod's has called out to one of their own "you've gotta come and look at this" :-(

I can't believe it took you a video of yourself to realise that you were so skinny - we could've told you that for a fraction of the price :)

Tesso's right - if you'd asked us, we'd have told ya how skinny you are ;-P

No wonder about the ITB probs now that you know that your glutes aren't able to work....Hope you get a resolution soon :-)

I guess everyone knows how special you are now. Always had my suspicions. ;)

my sleeping bag weighs 550 grams and has a comfort factor of negative 10 degrees centigrade.

Mate that fastpack from a couple of posts ago sounds great.

Don't worry about the bio-mechanics just have a good feed or two :)
