Good Form Running
Proper posture is the critical first step toward improved running form – one that sets the stage for more-efficient movement.
Landing on the midfoot, rather than the ankle, not only reduces impact on the knee – a common source of pain and injury – but also works with the other principles to encourage forward momentum for the body.
For many people making the transition, aiming for a cadence of 180 steps per minute (or 3 per second) is the element which requires the most work.
Rather than over-striding or reaching with the feet, Good Form Running utilizes a forward lean to propel the body forward.
