Mirinda Carfrae Running Technique

Mirinda Carfrae Running Technique


Today I want to take a look at some great footage that coach Mat Steinmetz has provided, featuring pro triathlete Mirinda Carfrae on a one hour training run after a 100 mile bike session.

Check-out the video above for some insights into what it takes to run 2hr50 and change off the bike at the Ironman World Championships, as Mirinda did to set the course record at Kona, that still stands.

How does your running compare?

  • Interesting analysis. Can you comment more on the efficiency and mechanics of what the leg does after the push? Is it desirable for the knee and foot to be lifted as high (as in the video) while the leg swings forward? I get the feeling I am running much too stiff-legged.
