How to run faster?
Running is a combination of mechanics (movement) and physiology (fitness).
The mechanical side, also known as biomechanics, looks at footwear and ground reaction force.
The physiology side looks at how you can improve your body’s heart and lungs ability to provide oxygen to the working muscles.
In order to improve as a runner, you must look at the biomechanics and physiology of running to keep making improvements and to avoid injury.
Improve running technique (biomechanics)
Running technique is made up of several different factors, such as:
- stride length
- running posture
- arm propulsion
- foot placement
- muscle recruitment
