In his book Jack Nirenstein proves how the greatest minds in running got it terribly wrong when they told us to push off the grounded leg to run faster .If you really think you can push yourself along with your leg muscles try these two simple tests;
1, stand on one leg, now push as hard as you can with your leg muscles.
2, Stand a foot away from a wall now lean into it, feel gravity pressing you into the wall, now exert maximum leg power, can you feel any extra force against the wall.

After getting advise from Adarian of NLAAF and also reading JUST UNDO IT I was now running without sciatic pains for the first time since I started running 15 years ago !
In a way I feel a bit pissed off that I was given such bad advise in the past, anyway I was absolutely flying along in the club session, reaching a max of 14.6 mph on the last 1/2 mile effort! A few people must have wondered how I had got so quick so suddenly! Well the answer is in the book my friend, I will tell no more, after all I have done months of homework to come up with answers to run faster! So you can do a bit of homework yourself! check out NLAAF and read Jack Nirenstein's book
I increased the length of the run by running down at marathon pace and running home with Rob and Tracey, after leaving Tracey at her house I blasted another 10 mins at marathon pace to take the run out to over 2 hours, a very good day at the office. All that was left to do was a very hard night shift! [8 HOURS OF WEIGHT TRAINING!] am I super duper human or what!!!
