comment Breathing during running
I usually do 2:2, but then also change it from R-L to L-R every 2-3 km. This way I get (almost) the same benefits as 2:1, but I don't have to think about it while running. I find it very hard to do 2:1 properly and usually end up out-of-breath in very few minutes.

comment Does this wear pattern on shoes indicate there is something wrong with gait?
@JohnP I agree with you on this specific set of shoes, but as the same is seen if you track or run, it can still be relevant. Having said that, I agree this is on the very border...

@JohnP As long the the symptoms are the various sorts of pronation, I don't think we are too off topic... Or?

comment Is it better to engage or relax your “core” during long distance running?
Longer and/or higher strides are not considered the most effective running style today! It will probably give you a slightly faster pace, but it will come at a rather high price in efficiency as 1) all energy going into the added height is almost completely lost as you land as the energy in not translated into forward motion but is absorbed in the various muzzles in the legs and 2) the longer stride also means you land exclusively on the heal and that leaves a fair deal of energy in the ligament and can lead to "Plantar fasciitis".

comment How long does it take to heal shin splint?
Go see a doctor. A shin sprint usually takes a bit longer to develop than 5-6 runs, so it might be something else. Also most often - in my experience at least - you don't "feel" the hurt from the shin sprint during the run, but only after the run and at the very start of the run...

The problem is that the static press is on the exact ligaments that has been hurt. Thanks for the reference - I'll check it out soon.
