Welcome back to another week of Tuesday Tips with Running Rachel (Running Edition). If you are new to my Tuesday Tips Running Edition, welcome! Check out the links below to see what you missed!
1. Proper Form While Running
2. Head and Shoulders (look ahead at about 10-20 feet ahead of you; check your posture; relax your shoulders; rotate arms from the shoulders)
3. Arms and Hands (keep your arms and hands relaxed; keep your hands at a 90* angle; try to keep your hands at pocket/waist/hip level; rotate your arms from the shoulders; keep arms at your side)
I struggle with this one… and I find that it is often overlooked.
Make sure you flex your ankles – or kick (push off from the ground) – as your foot is rotating forward. This not only helps prevent injury (instead of just pounding hard on your feet with each strike) but in doing so it propels you forward.

Make healthy living and active lifestyle a HABIT for you and your family! You will continue to see success and the results you seek.
Have a blessed week!
