I was a bit uncertain concerning my knee's after Yesterdays workout. I have been thinking a great deal about what the real cause for the pain in my knee's could be. Possible causes are to much strain, insufficient technique, wrong shoes, low strength in feet. I think nr 2 is connected to nr 3. Today I used a pair of competition shoes(weight: 193 kg), Mizuno Wave Ronin. I didn't feel any pain or discomfort in my knees at all. I could clearly sense that I tended to use my forefoot to a greater extent and a more evenly distributed pressure when landing on the foot. In the time to come I'll use these shoes only and check out if that's the reason for my knee-problems.
Well then, about todays workout. I did four, short intervalls. The speed was there like before. In order to develop I need to increase the length of my intervalls. I'm running 435 m(0,270 miles) now. Next week I'll increase the length to 600 m(0,37 miles).
