Quick Tips for Running Technique Assessment

 

Every runner’s technique is individual. If you ever get a chance to see a video of yourself, or another athlete running, use the tips in this video to assess whether or not you’re overstriding, and how your effective your stride pattern is.

Check out today’s new video for more of an insight into how improve your running form.

You can video and assess your own running form using the mobile app I featured in this recent video: Best Running App for Gait Analysis
