And Their Off!

Wow! What a great turn out for the running clinic 🙂 We had a packed house of people wanting to learn how to correct their technique and decrease their risks for injury by running more efficiently. The learned about the 3 key points in running and points to remember on technique. We talked about running injuries and how to avoid them and what there main causes are. We ran some drills to get some reps in on correct technique and what to focus on. Each individual was given the opportunity to see before and after practice on video of them running. Many improvements were made and still work to be done. Remember that it takes 10,000 hours to become an expert at something. One three hour clinic on running will not fix your form. For those that made it, do some of those drills on a daily basis to help those nervous system pathways learn how to execute. This video talks about some of the faults of typical American runners in comparison to their Kenyan counterparts. Pay attention to most of it, and then you can ignore the stride length portion and hip angle. We want our runners to keep their feet off the ground as much as possible. Focus on the PULL, increase cadence to match your degree of lean to increase your speed.
