Might have helped Nick! That said my rounds (on Garmin) are about 9.8km.

I certainly (with the 7:30 start) had the room to tee one up on the Linc and try for a new distance record! Imagine talking about 1,900 yard drives.

his words: stop running, become a triathelte i don't get it. don't triathletes run? or is he just saying that you shouldn't run as much ?? My favourite physio guy - Russell Gunner at ORC - notes how little work he gets from triathletes and how much from runners. Hang in there campbellskid. DV

Donald - to change your (own natural) foot strike position. Start a series of drills at home - running/stepping fast in place on the balls of your feet plus some "A"s a step, lift knee up and then extend foot forward to land onthe ball.

Happy retraining and be patient.
