How To Run Good

If you’ve never had a running coach, Runner’s World has the article meant for you. It spells out exactly what makes for the perfect running form, so that you can run the way the pros do:

  • Look straight forward at the horizon, not down
  • Keep your shoulders low and don’t let them creep up
  • Keeps arms bent at a right-angle, fists unclenched, and move them back-and-forth (not side-to-side)
  • Run tall — stretch out, don’t slouch
  • Calibrate your stride so that your legs should land under your body, not in front.
  • Your foot should land with the front part of the heel, and then roll into the toes and spring up
  • Running well means running quietly, so if you’re making noise, your feet are landing too hard
