Running Analysis / Coach

Postby tdjme » Sat Apr 14, 2012 2:30 pm

I've been told my running form is flawed... that I should be using glutes more and that I use hip extensors too much. This leads me to think it would be a good investment to get a proper running form analysis and a little coaching.

Any recommendations as to where I can go / who I can see?
... not fast but having a lot of fun!..

If you are in pain and are sore, probably would be good to go see a coach.

If you are running where you want and are not in pain or have lots of soreness, its probably just the way your body wants to run. Your body is going to try and find the most efficient way to run that it can, sometimes you can do more to hurt your stride by trying to change it imo.

Long discussion, but watch the Boston Marathon replay. The lead runners, they land mid to forefoot. That being said, there are some top runners that heel strike, but not many.
Watch youtube videos of Ryan Hall and Craig Alexander running. Everyone is different, but.....
