With daylight saving’s time having passed, this morning’s run took place in the dark. Berkeley is infamous for it’s lack of street lamps, but by running by campus I was able to get some more light. It was while running under these lamposts that I was able to observe my running form. One of the few lessons I remembered from high school track was to not let my arms cross in front of my body. I thought I was doing that, but when I saw my shadow from the lights, I saw they were crossing slightly. By adjusting, I felt myself working less on my upper body and getting more momentum from my lower body. Runners World put together a great video (above) to give you more details about proper running form. Be sure to check it out!
