Are you a runner? As the snow melts and the temperatures warm up, you might be thinking of switching from the treadmill to taking workouts outside. I hope you are also thinking about your running technique. I like the information on Good Form Running. The four main topics are posture, midfoot, cadence and lean. If you are ready to practice some new running habits, this video discusses transitioning from “common running form” to “good form.”
While I know some people who successfully run in minimalist shoes, I prefer a normal, neutral shoe. If you want to go the minimalist route, prepare by strengthening your feet. Assess your physical readiness per Runner’s World. Make the transition gradually (say, over 2-3 months).
