Running Form Assessment
One of the things I was most excited about when I signed up for a running coach was getting my form assessed. I’d never really seen myself run before even though I do it all the time so it was good to set aside some time and record and analyse my form.
In truth, I not-so-humbly admit I thought my form was pretty good, so I was a little surprised when I had received quite a few pointers.
I made a quick summary of my form assessment and where and how I could improve:
My Running Form Assessment
I made this set of slides myself. I filmed it, sent it to coach. He drew the wireframes then analysed it. We then we went through it together where I took notes so that I could quickly put something actionable together.
My takeaways from this whole process was that
- There is no perfect way to run
- If you are comfortable and free of pain you will go far
- You can (easily) make (slight) corrections to make yourself a more efficient runner by conserving energy if you plan on going far (probably +21K)
- You can probably do your own running for assessment with the help of Google & Youtube (see final slide)
