Have you heard yourself?

This is just a quick post to get me back into (or even started!) writing blog posts. I thought I’d start with a question.

Have you ever listened to how you run?

I’ve spent some time over the last few months, with the change in seasons, analysing clients gait when running or walking. Something that keeps cropping up is the noise, or lack of, that they make when running. Lots of us run listening to music and probably pay very little attention to how WE sound.

So next time you’re out or at the gym have a listen: are you loud with “slappy feet” or a heavy tread or quiet as a mouse? Is there a difference between your right and left sides? I’m not saying that quiet running is the answer, but it would suggest less impact and listening to yourself run may just make you more aware of what’s going on in your own body.
