Make Your Running More Efficient
Do you want to run more efficiently? Do you want more strength when you’re running? How about more speed?
Here are three simple things to do that will make you a more efficient runner. The hard part of this approach is remembering to do these three things when you are most fatigued.
Keep your head up, and your back straight. Do not lean forward from the waist. Push your hips forward so that you foot contacts the ground under your Center of Gravity (hips).
Keep your shoulders back. This will make it easier to breathe. Think of holding a pencil between your shoulder blades. Open up your chest to get more oxygen.
Get Your Feet Up
Pick up your feet, don’t shuffle and lift your heels higher. Run with quiet feet. And, lift your heels so that they are as high as your knees.
