PMO introducing thoughts of correcting your posture once an hour for a few minutes whilst you go about your daily life and then little and often for runs until it becomes more and more is the most beneficial if you have the discipline to do it - the reason you want to check your posture every hour is to retrain your body to use the muscles to support itself all of the time so that when you go for a run it just becomes a natural way of you being plus bad posture leads to all kinds of niggling injuries whereas good posture helps you avoid injuries and breathe better too.....I'm a little passionate about posture;-)

As for sports massage for anyone London based I'll be seeking volunteers for case studies and treatments from October when I start studying at St. Mary's - fmail me if you're interested...In order to do sports massage you first have to qualify in A&P for holistic and holistic body massage so you won't have a complete masseur novice working on you;-)

Thanks SharonD, I will certainly try that. Having suffered (albeit not that badly) with tight lower legs for a while now it was a revelation to run without feeling them. Whereabouts in London are you studying?

PMO I'll be at St Mary;s in Twickenham

Chrisull - if you have sore abdominals when you are running /after then you are using them to stabilise yourself so you smile :-P

Got something to say?
