Running Stride

Increase your stride and run faster. Wait a second. Not so fast. Although increasing your stride could make you run faster, but is it right for you? Most runners tend to overstride or understride. Both waste to much energy. Moreover, both can cause undo stress on your lower body. A natural stride length is what you want to achieve. This can be done by increasing and incorporating different training routines that increases leg strength.

I call my stride ( Rapid Turning Over.) A shorter midfoot stride with frequent leg movement. In other words,my feet aren't on the ground very long. Remember to train hard and run within you limitations. Experiment with  both styles,then go out and stride right.

Remember To Always Keep It Moving!
