Run Faster With Correct Biomechanics And Unlock The Power Within

Good posture is vitally important if you want to run faster-smoother and with less injury.
The first video is a good starting point for improving running form.

Learning the Skill of Barefoot Running from Terra Plana on Vimeo.

The second video shows how good posture [ hips forward and running tall] lets you run with a longer stride and faster speed!

Self awareness is everything. Most people don't understand that what you tolerate you accept, but it is a reality. Think about it. The more you sit in traffic, the more you get used to the traffic. Eventually you say, "this is normal for me, the traffic isn't that bad, I barely notice it any longer." Yet, there is a non-moving mass of cars surrounding you -- this is called grid-lock. Loss of tissue tolerance and the art of ageing is similar in nature. The physical difference is basically the same, you become "locked" and consider it "normal". I really want you to think about this; what you tolerate, you accept. MOREWeight of Life
