5. Gait Factoid, posture matters
This week you did another post on running faster and about  ”lifting the head to engage extensors”……  here was an article in the news on posture
– can you give the listeners a neat neuro tidbit on posture and the brain ?

 9. from a blog reader:
Hello Gait Guys,
What would you look to do with a 20 year-old competitive 5k runner (me) with chronic posterior tibialis problems?
– a short background: surgery two years ago on left talo-navicular joint osteochondral defect, since then mileage has been extremely limited (now it begins to fatigue painfully on 30 minute runs). 
Both sides affected, or sometimes one or the other. Arch of right foot got so painful last summer I was on crutches and could not walk/stand without supportive shoes. Currently the left side is most troubling and I can see no pattern!
Many thanks for the fantastic blog
Joy
10. Facebook reader:
  • I thought I’d go the experts on this one. I just took a myofacsical release class and the instructor said the most efficient running gait is by using your psoas. So, forward lean until you are about to fall forward and then contract psoas to lift the leg just enough to catch up with the body. He said this is how all the Kenyans run… makes sense kind of.. but???
