Running, much like swimming and cycling, does indeed have a technical aspect to it. Smooth, efficient running takes time, patience, and proper technique. One way to work on improving your overall run technique and efficiency is to perform run drills regularly. Running drills can be done as part of a warm-up before a run, a cool-down after a run, or as a stand-alone session on a recovery day. I have created a 3-part series in which I carefully outline beginner, intermediate, and advanced run drills for you to work on and master. This month, I present the advanced drills that will help you improve your run technique and efficiency. These drills should be done only after practicing and mastering the beginner and intermediate run drills I have presented in previous month's Instructional Video Posts.
