Proper Form - Jeff Galloway - Week 2 of 4

As promised, I am sharing Jeff Galloway's second of four short videos released for runDisney.  This one pertains to everyone... not just those interested in his run/walk method.  He talks very briefly about running form.  I am happy to say that I follow all 3 of these things when I run... shew!!!  I know I have many other issues with my form, but at least I have the basics.

"Proper running and walking form is essential to reduce the risk of injury. The Jeff Galloway method teaches runners to stay upright, maintain a short stride and eliminate bounce. Let’s get training with Jeff Galloway. "

I'm glad to see him talk about stride, because I often get told "you're so tall, you should be really fast".  Well, if you're keeping your stride short, it really doesn't matter.  Sherry, who ran with me at my last half marathon, is significantly shorter than me and yet we paced exactly the same and strided exactly the same... except maybe I don't listen to that advice so well when I walk... and that's when my crazy long legs really do push me forward.  I guess, though, according to Galloway, I should be keeping my stride short then, as well.
