I don’t want to give the impression that my journey towards getting fit and competing in a triathlon is all easy and not without its problems. It’s the most difficult things I’ve ever done and I’m facing so many issues that it’s sometimes feels overwhelming. The biggest issue I am tackling so far is my running form and technique. I am not a natural runner. Nobody has ever taught me on the proper way. I remember someone saying to me ‘why don’t you just run’?
Well, believe me, there’s nothing more I like to do that just run. When I started in december, I had to spend nearly 45 minutes every night icing my legs and feet. Both my ankles were hurting and I had to limp around for quite awhile. The biggest problem was that my technique was completely wrong.
