Improving Your Running Form

Lookin’ Good! Improving Your Running Form

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.

High Skips

Butt Kicks


Also, Josh Vander Wiele is hosting a free clinic, Run Faster, Easier, More Injury Free Running Form and Efficiency Tips on April 19th, 7:15-8:15pm at the store. Clinic is limited to 10 participants, so sign up early.

Hope to see you and your efficient running form on the trail!
