That sounds like something that I could benefit from. I'd love to know why most of my injuries happen on the right side of my body and why my left arm always seems hugged-up against me. I'm sure there's some strength difference between the two sides of my body, but why. And how can I prevent injuries in the future.
In your case, your knees are backwards and you could learn from the ostrich.

Maybe only ONE knee is backwards AND my faster leg is dragging my slower one. That would explain EVERYTHING!

Personally zoomy I think the problem is vertical bounce. If the AVERAGE marathon runner travels 31-35 miles because of vertical bounce (I think my garmin measured the drift part as about 1/2 mile) then certainly you and I must have nearly 40 miles on us because of all the bounce.
So there is our problem. We are running ultras. Or at least our boobs are. But my boobs are damn near kenyan fast.

That's what I get for signing up early!! Damn!!!! Anyone ever had this before?
he doesn't think I did anything to my achilles tendon itself...but I have fluid buildup between it and the sheath or fascia surrounding the tendon? (I'm writing from memory) So, I'm going to PT for awhile, he suggested I go through this gait analysis they do (sounds interesting)...also keep up the anti-inflammatory and stop running whenever I begin to feel it. So frustrating! He agreed my full is out of the question for May...1/2 is up in the air. Great! That's what I get for signing up early!! Damn!!!! Anyone ever had this before?
