As the weather starts to warm up you may be thinking about running. Perhaps you’re a seasoned runner just waiting for some nice weather. Maybe you are looking to get off your couch and try running for the first time. No matter where you are at, this weeks series will help you improve your running technique so that you can run injury free. Our goal at RAM for our runners is that each runner can run with proper form and technique before starting to build distance or trying to get faster.
This week we will tell you about everything from how to improve your form to how to fuel properly for endurance races.
Check out our first video on form and foot strike. Something all runners no matter their level should check out and practice. I ran since I was in high school and when I finally learned about proper running form about 10 years later this changed how I ran and to date “knock on wood” I have not had a running injury.
If you are a beginner this is the perfect place to start. If you are a veteran who may need to tweak a few things, then don’t be afraid to slow down your training and develop these techniques before you start to build back up.
When I first incorporated this into my training it was like starting from scratch, but after one to two months of practice I was back to where I had left off but more efficient and faster.
