  5. soaked chainsaw trousers - whats best?

    I use this stuff made by nikwax, it doesn’t make them waterproof but it does increase the water repellency of the fabric meaning they take longer to get wet, absorb less water and dry out quicker. Nikwax TX Direct Wash (1L) - Keep Garments Waterproofed

    A mate of mine changed his gait to improve his marathon times and reduce stress injuries. He focused on his running style for around 6 months before it felt more natural than heel striking but also increased his cadience and knee lift. I would imagine professional athletes cant afford to miss a footwear endorsement opportunity but I am old enough to remember Zola Budd

    forefoot running is a natural gait style that humans evolved over thousands of years but was undone by sports companies over 30 years ago as they wanted to sell runners expensive shoes and turn them into heel strikers. If in doubt go down to the beach or local field, take of your shoes and have a run - bet your gait is forefoot strike as its painful to heel strike with no shoes on. The key to changing to forefoot running (natural gait) is to gradually reduce the thickness of shock absorber in your running shoe as this will lessen the chance of injury whilst switching gait
