    Why run backwards? Found this in an article on Reverse Running in the Guardian:

    “It is a great way to cool down; it helps improve balance and promotes better neuromuscular efficiency,” he explains. “It is the perfect remedy to help cure the frequent deficiency between anterior and posterior chain muscle groups – the hamstrings/calves and quads.

    “This switch in movement also helps the body’s antagonistic (opposing) muscles function like the agonistic (contracting) muscles. Overall, backward running will produce a far better relationship between your muscles and help deliver more power, safely.”

    Who doesn’t want more power??

      Is ACF supplying helmets? I may need to get my mom’s permission before running backwards.

    I definitely felt my antagonist muscles were in agony. 😉

    Another lesson in the year of resetting the system and reasserting control! Thank you, Molly!
