Episode Quotes
  • Make sure your foot land behind the knee. If not it's a hip operation waiting to happen
  • If your form works you don't need to change it. If you're getting injured or want to run efficient, then look at the better form
  • Hitting the ground isn't what we want - We want to be up in the air for as much as possible
  • Anyone that overstrides and lands with the foot in front of the knee, is braking and accelerating and this is a very inefficient way of running.
