|What am I doing?! The hokey pokey?!|
This has me a little worried. Have I been running wrong for three years?! I know I'm a slower runner, and my stride is definitely not long, but I feel like it shouldn't have been such a foreign feeling to get that good picture that is now my header. It was seriously difficult and an awkward feeling and there is no way I could have kept it up for more than 15 strides.
I know there are things that are golden rules of form, like heel strike is BAD, but what do you guys think of all the other rules? Is there just one specific form that everyone should look like?
Landing on a specific part of your foot and holding your arms a certain height sound good, but then you have people like Pete Rea, a North Carolina running coach saying "For most people, I don't know if focusing on form is of great benefit."
So, what's your verdict?
