A great way to improve your running is by working on your running form. While we are all perfect, our bodies are not symmetrical. Knowing that, no one is going to run like anyone else, but each of us can improve and make our form more efficient.
One way to enhance your running form is by doing running drills at least two times per week. Drills are an exaggerated movement that uses your full range of motion. Consistently doing drills builds strength and quickness, which allows you to run while using less energy, thus faster times.
Here are some running drills to help you improve your running form.
