Spring training starts well under way in February. For runners, sprinters, joggers, and the like, attention to form provides keys to success in winning events. Strides, arm-movement, and head placement focus, develops in-tune athletes who outperform their competitors. As it is in all sports, running requires cleats and proper running attire. This spring, there is more to watch than the ever-changing terrain, like outdoor weather and running into teammates.
Skills in running include lift, and length of leg-stride adjusted for short-distance and long-distance events. Of course a driving knee will propel you forward and off the concrete, combined with a quick snap of the ankles, effective for sprinting. The spring in your step precludes definition of height and bounce in exposing your forward momentum. In keeping with the synchronicity of arm and leg movement, hands must be open to keep from retracting energy from the run.
Training as an outdoor runner requires great agility, and even eye coordination for judging the ups and downs of the land. Running up-hill is always a strenuous workout, and the great burn you feel in repetitive gestures will be reflected in your events. Although it is recommended not to run everyday, the lasting competitiveness, short of a burn-out, will give you turn on your investment.
Training is ongoing, and tightening your ambitions for goal achievement, will put you at peak performance.
