The better your technique, the more fluid and efficient your running will be. It’s like anything else; strength lies in mastering the fundamentals. So, be mindful of how your body is moving when you’re running. It can be tempting to disconnect with your body and focus all of your attention on your awesome playlist.

But don’t forget to tune into your body from time to time to do a diagnostic check. Your running will improve, I promise you.
