How many of you have considered your running form? Most of us would rather just lace up and go, then get bogged down in details.
Now, I’m not saying you need to fully geek out on your form, that can come later! But I do believe that it’s worth your time and effort to make yourself more efficient when running.
That’s the purpose of today’s video. We cover a basic form drill called Power Skips. I recommend performing this drill as part of your warm-up routine at the outset of your run, then also sprinkled into your run every few minutes.
Why? Again, you don’t need to get too bogged down with details, but simply put, your form will tend to break down if you’re not being proactive about it. Every time you perform this drill, it’s like calibrating your body to operate at peak form.
Every step you take, your foot spends between .2-.3 seconds on the ground. How efficiently you can land, gather yourself, and push off again determines a lot when it comes to how fast you run and how well you avoid injuries.
Power Skips are one of my favorite drills to develop better efficiency!
