Good article and even better podcast on running form and mechanics.

I’ve shared from Jason at Strength Running before.  If you look at continuum or scale he’s on the opposite end of CrossFit Endurance’s Brian Mckenzie.  So he’s more in the traditional running mileage with some body strength exercises (whereas Brian MacKenzie is strength/speed/stamina first and foremost).  Candidly I’m somewhere in between.  I respect each one though – torn am I!

Running!

Run free! But what does that mean?

The podcast and discussion with Jeff Gaudette talks about a topic in both camps – proper form, firing the glutes, lean, cadence.  Listen to this! Jeff is an Olympic Trials qualifier (2:22 marathon – sick!) and has been involved in the Hanson’s training approach.

So take a look at the article and listen to the podcast.  Good stuff.

*Key finding, more than a Pose/Chi, midfoot or heel debate, posture is critical!
