How to Run Faster

By Jae Gruenke | Running Performance

Running faster means running differently. Form changes with speed. Some of those changes will happen automatically. Sometimes, though, runners don’t know how to let them happen, and make extra effort fighting themselves or trying to keep running with the same form regardless of speed.

This week in my Stuck-at-Home Running Form Tips I’ve been looking in depth at the form changes for faster running. You’ll be surprised at what happens to your speed when you learn how to do these properly.

Start your learning process by watching the videos and, for anything you find difficult, trying the recommended lesson or resource. That should get you on your way towards making fast running much, much easier.

You’ll also want to take a look at my blog posts on How Trying to Run Fast May Be Making You Slower and “Just” Run Faster
