joe122 saidIf you're talking about running technique look up the pose method on youtube. To sum it up, the pose method basically tells you to take shorter strides, to bend your knees, to try to land on your mid-foot, to wear shoes with less cushion, and to kick your legs back instead of extending them far forward. If you're talking about how to gain stamina, start off with incline walking and slowly work your way toward running. Losing weight also helps.
Always wondered why the serious runners kicked back so high.
To enable me to run with my knees flexible, I decided to hit the leg machines for quads, hams, etc. Within a week, I had overdeveloped one group and then you can't keep your knee caps stable. My legs would stiffen up.
Another problem just diagnosed after nearly a decade of leg cramps. I have a significant vitamin-D deficiency. 20 instead of 50.
Google for leg cramps and vit D. Doctors in California don't check that like they do up in Seattle. No idea why.
Here's an article on something else: colon cancer and vitamin D.http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/09/01/us-vitamind-idUSTRE78063U20110901
