Checking my running form

Published by Ronald on Friday, 19 Aug 2011 11:23 EDT

A few days ago, I decided that I wanted to work on my running form after reading about this blog post from Jason Robillard. I know that it’s important for minimal and barefoot running to have a proper running form to avoid blisters or injury. I haven’t been injured yet, but I did get some blisters with the Invisible Shoes which is to be expected when you start. I have two races coming up which I plan to run in minimal shoes (most likely the VIVOBAREFOOT Neo) and I thought this would be a good time to check out my running form.

My video editing skills are very minimal, but I managed to put a video together which turned out to be quite interesting for me. When I made this video, I ran the way I always run which means I didn’t watch my form at all. This is how I have been running for the past few months and I do think I can spot a few issues, which I’ll get into later.

The pace in this video is around 10 to 12 kmph or around 6-8 mph which is not sprinting but my fast pace for longer runs.
