As an individual, how often do you run? How long or how far you can go? Evolutionary biology professor Daniel Lieberman of Harvard University study some scientific backbone for Chris McDougall’s BORN TO RUN. He identifies some key elements on how to run better at long distances and free from injury. Running is one form of exercises we often do. Somehow without proper notice or awareness when we run, we got injured. The first point to keep ourselves from harm, “don’t overstride “. In every stride you do, you land your foot in front of you. Your knee carries the weight of your foot in every step. You decelerate from the time you take center the mass of your body using your foot you loss energy. Don’t make it hard it will cause strain. If you run overstride, you don’t have the agility force.
Another key element, land on a flat surface. Most runner land on the ball of their foot, which is usually happen. When you run on plain area the better. You don’t need to run hard to land on your heel but on your mid foot. Third element, run vertically. Don’t lean forward on your hips, stand erect and carry it through out the period of your run. Don’t force your body to do so but be natural. When you land your feet in front of you, you heard thump. A good advice not to do it, it means you run poorly. The thump is the sound of your body collision to the surface. You must run gently and collision free. Lastly, ease into it. Don’t over do it. When you feel pain, you need to adopt your body slowly to this routine. You cannot over do it just to run properly. It take practice and patience to overcome hardships in proper running.
