Do you ever listen while you run? No, I don’t mean listen to music or conversation or podcasts. Do you listen for the sound of your feet hitting the ground? Try it. If your feet make a loud pounding noise, that means you’re hitting the ground with more force than necessary, and there is room for improvement.
- When you are light on your feet, it means there is less stress, on your body with each step.
- When you are light on your feet, it indicates good running form.
- It means you have a strong core.
All these things are good. In this podcast I explain why it’s beneficial to tread lightly, and I describe a wide variety of drills and other things you can do to stop the pounding and run lighter.
