In our training regime of easy runs, long runs, tempo runs, track work and strength work, we are continuously working at getting fitter, faster and stronger. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this, but what if I told you that you could potentially make these sessions easier on your body by simply focusing on small postural changes? Teaching your body to habitually make minor changes to your form to remove bad habits and improve posture will effectively improve your running economy and help you to become a more efficient runner over time. Your running engine (that you are continuously working at making stronger) will automatically take less strain when you remove unnecessary loads from your runs.
I am currently presenting an online Form & Posture Series, New Episodes released every week. Join the RacePace Academy for Runners and watch at your own pace.
