I think I am going to keep it short and sweet this morning!
There are so many components to our running form, I spoke about one, the arm swing a couple of weeks ago and this week I just want to briefly break down two that you should be considering.
Don’t pound or stomp the feet. - You want to think light and quite, if your stride sounds like a herd of buffalo then you are hitting the ground too hard. We already are putting a major impact on our bones, joints, and muscle from running you are not helping it out any by striking those feet so hard. Lighten it up, guys.
Keep those shoulders down and back. - When you tense up those shoulders, you are not only tightening up those muscles unnecessarily but you are also affecting your posture, which will affect your running form.
These are two of my top pet peeves, besides the arm swing, when it comes to our running forms. Check out this article by Runners World that will give you some more tips.
Train Hard, Train Smart, and Have Fun,
Hi guys!! Welcome to my thoughts and just some health information that I hope you can use! Let me just state this now. I am not a writer, English major, or even a blogger, so there will be mistakes in here.
