Running: How do you move?

 While walking around Lady Bird Lake I have a great opportunity to watch a  large number of people using their bodies while running and walking.

This article is very helpful to those of you who would like to improve your running and walking. For those who would like to have just a few tips, here are some suggestions to make your running more enjoyable and body friendly.

  • Sense where your ears are, your occipital ridge and the bottom of your cheekbones.  This is where your head sits on the top of your spine.
  • Make sure that your head is tilted ever so slightly forward on the top of your spine .
  • Now think your head “up” and allow your whole body to follow lengthening and your rib cage widening.
  • Notice your whole body following with ease and greater flexibility.

  1. What a neat article! Thanks for bringing attention to this – I feel like you’ve written it just so I would read it 😉 now I will have a new level of awareness when I run.
