Random question - but I have noticed that my shoulders and neck are getting increasingly tense when I run. I have recently started increasing my mileage in preparation to start my marathon training schedule next month, and have noticed that by the end of my long runs, my arms, shoulders and neck are aching almost as much as my legs! I know I hold my hands in a fist when I'm running as it's been pointed out to me before, however it's so natural to me to run like that, I don't even know I'm doing it.I try not too, but then I think I concentrate on what my hands and arms to doing so much that I tense myself up even more!
I wondered if anyone had any tips or hints to keep my upper body more relaxed during a run as, the way I'm going at the moment, it'll be my upper body hampering my marathon training rather than my legs!
