Thursday, May 28th
I got the opportunity to watch the majority of the classes run today and the different types of runners you all are. Do you go out the door and think, "Just put one foot in front of the other and get back in the door" or do you think about the different components of running? Breathing, where your arms are and how they are moving, or which part of your foot are you landing on? Thinking about running is just like any other movement we do in the gym and your coaches want it done safely and efficiently. Just like we want a snatch or squat to be preformed safely and efficiently. Could running get more fluid and comfortable if you focused on the key components? Does a clean get more fluid and comfortable when you focus on the key components (Having a flat back in your setup, keeping your arms long, getting your elbows around quick)? Absolutely to both! What is the best way to fix something? Breaking it down and starting over, so the first thing we are going to think about and focus on is your posture. Here is a link to the Good Form Running site. All the videos are here for the 4 points of running, but I'm only going to ask you to focus on the first point for right now. You ask yourself "why is she writing this? ...... OH MY LANTA, this probably means we are going to doing more running.. :/" You're right!! Just like we wont you to move well with a barbell; we also what you to move well when you run. We get a limited number of months to run so you betcha we are going to take advantage of it.
