Ok this is so major for me right now but in light of accountability and also inspiration I am sharing this to showcase my rollercoaster journey!
I have gone from a size 16 to a size 8 back to a 10/12 and most recently to a size 14 and fuller in places I don’t want to be. I share this not to body shame myself but to speak out and to encourage myself and others too. After my hospitalisation last September my body has not been the same and my heart rate has been playing up- I’ve learnt about my body been extremely acidic and now learning to balance it back to an Alkaline state! Take care of you so by His Grace you can live out His full purpose for you
Treadmills are not effective for training speed unless they are turned off. I’m sorry if that line makes you feel like I’m pissing in your Cheerios...Training for speed and acceleration is about propulsion here on earth, and the last time I checked the earth stayed put underneath me when I ran over it. Due to the nature of a moving belt the athlete must create forces that are going forward such as in deceleration or braking vs down and back as found in the propulsive action of running fast. Otherwise you would run into the front of the treadmill. The hamstrings become less active and the pelvis adopts a more anteriorly tilted position as the stance leg is literally thrown back behind the athlete. Hello high hamstring strain. The transfer of force and energy through the column goes away and the foot and ankle no longer require the stiffness needed to transfer elastic energy and truly propel an athlete from stride to stride. Again I’m simply stating the facts here please research for yourself for a more comprehensive analysis on the topic. Trust me there’s plenty of it out there.
In the video above an athlete performs a “dead tread” which I was first introduced to circa 2007 by a coach who was also an accomplished sprinter. He told me that this was the only way to use a treadmill if you want results for your clients and athletes. Over a decade later I still agree. The downfall being that the athlete is holding on to the handles and thus it’s not as coordinated of a movement as running, not unlike sled pushing. Focus here is training pushing the ground away and rapid turnover. So turn the power off and create your own power next time you hop on the treadmill, or hop on one of the new self propelled units @trueformrunning that are now available instead. We must always ask why we are doing what we are doing and have a reason for our why. If you like to run on your treadmill and you’re not concerned with all the speed and acceleration stuff by all means keep doing it!! But if you want to live on the edge a bit and get faster try turning it off and doing some speed work and see what happens...See you at the finish line!
