When I first started running I just moved my feet forward there was nothing to it, recently I found out the importance the strike. The strike what the heck is that I know right, it’s where your foot is located when first making contact to the ground. I finally was fitted for proper shoes and with proper footware it has made my running mechanics improve drastically with that said my times have not only improved but the intensity of my runs have increased. When I started this journey 3 years ago I would of never thought I could run a 7 minute mile maybe not even two months ago but that has changed with proper shoes
and proper striking.
