Watch children playing on any school playground and you will see running form at its best. Running comes naturally to a child; it is as we grow up and become sedentary that we begin to struggle with how we should run (and even walk). The first rule of running form is to stay relaxed throughout your workout. This will help to minimize the energy you expend and lessen the chance for injury. We want the body to be “light” and “low to the ground”, focusing on forward motion.
