Positioning and perfecting an effective foot strike

In this week’s Triathlon Essentials training video we look at methods of developing a proper foot strike on the run. Many novice runners land on their heels with each strike, forcing the body to brake each time the foot touches the ground. Watch these elite athletes on the run and pay extra attention to the way their feet land on the ground. Notice that the fastest runners land on their mid-foot, gently tapping the ground with each stride. Perfecting this type of stride can take time, so be patient and remember to stay relaxed while you run!
