In Saturday's blog, we talked about the Do's and Don'ts of good running form including things like cadence, foot strike and posture. By following those simple do's and don'ts you'll find you're able to increase your running efficiency resulting in both longer and faster runs. And, you'll be better prepared for active recovery as you won't feel as fatigued after your run.
But, I thought about the blog and realized how helpful it would be to pull together some videos that will help demonstrate these rules and help you to better visualize them as you put them into practice.
In this article, there are links to what I consider the 5 Best Free Running Form Videos specifically for the non-elite runners. These videos come from widely respected coaches like Sage Canaday, Jason Fitzgerald, Rick Muhr, Amy Yoder Begley and the team at The Run Experience.
