Every year I create a new audio lesson and make it available for free to help you start the new year on the right foot, so to speak. (And every year I try to resist making that pun and end up giving in.)
Here’s this year’s lesson, which I’m calling “Perfecting Your Footstrike” because it has that amazing effect. However, like any running form adjustment worth making, it has lots of other effects as well, including helping you lean beautifully and improving how you apply force to the ground and shift weight from leg to leg. It reduces IT band stress, improves symmetry, and reduces overpronation for those running in conventional trainers.
Please let me know your experiences with the lesson in the comments section. Enjoy and happy new year!
