Introduction to Running Performance

This is a quick post to let you know about a series I’ll be working on this summer. It’s all about Running Performance. Are you an avid runner who wants to dive into the nitty gritty science that can help you get faster, stay injury-free, and just get more enjoyment out of your running? Are you a team sport athlete who wants to train more effectively? Do you have a chronic injury or pain issue and you need to find the root cause, see the big picture, and solve your problem once and for all? No matter your passion or your level, if you want to learn how to move better on two feet, you’ll like some of the topics I’m going to cover.
