learning to run

Posted on June 12, 2012 by admin 1 Comment

There are a number issues that most novice runners have – and quite frequently more advanced runners – their foot does not land under their body – nowadays everyone is focusing on the midfoot – but still everyday I see runners of all skill level with slow cadence, minimal knee flexion, too little hip extension, and their foot just doesn’t land under their body – no it is not easy to correct all of these. But with a camera, a metronome, and some effort – a great deal can be done – you can strengthen all you like, but if you want to run regularly, a good distance, and not injure yourself – it is a must to correct your technique first – besides where did we learn to run – we can’t go as fast as the elite runners in this video – but we can work towards their form.
