    No, sorry, I was serious! I like the surroundings! And I see nothing wrong with the drills either!

    On the 2nd skips - i would focus on more front side mechanics - ie, higher knee drive ect. And it's a good time to focus on the arm mechanics too. They open up too much behind you again...
    Perhaps also focus on being "taller" - which should lead to more hip height, foot landing under COG that type of thing.
    Otherwise, looks good.

    Any particular advice on rolling?
    Just roll out every muscle in the hips 2x or 3x a week?
    Thanks!

    Sorry for bumping an old thread, but thats some sweet running John. Moving really well!

    Yep - or even 5min per day on legs or back with one 1hr roll on a weekly basis.

    Just keep it slow and wait till the pain or the hard lump goes away.

    Most youtube clips go way too fast. On some esp tight muscles i used to wait up to 5min on the same spot, then the muscle just relaxed instantly...

    Once rolled, give that muscle a good stretch or ICE if its still sore.
