Hittin' the...treadmill?

Although I said I wanted to become a more natural runner in every sense of the word, I have been running on the treadmill lately to get myself back into the running groove. I run before work and don’t particularly feel like running in the dark (a.k.a. wearing a reflective vest), so I opt for the indoors option. I am very much looking forward to earlier sunrises.

So needless to say, I have been hitting the gym with all of the retirees who still get up really early for no reason and one guy who leaves me in his treadmill dust, and I have been logging 3 mile runs 3 days a week on the treadmill. Although it is boring, my runs have been easier than
expected. I have been focusing on my form and trying to pay attention to where my foot is landing. Using some videos and articles I found online (see below), I have practiced how it should feel to run correctly, and I think it is helping.

I feel as though I am running a bit faster without as much effort. I don’t even realize how far I have run because it just doesn’t feel as tiring. I am sure this has nothing to do with the mildly entertaining VH-1 programming on the TV directly in front of my usual spot (TI and Tiny, Basketball Wives, Mobwives…the list of TV gold goes on), which I am usually
embarrassed to be obviously watching so I pretend to look at the TV to the left of it while I plug into my machine’s audio. Besides being impressed that I don’t actually need to see the VH-1 shows to follow along, I am shocked at how much of an improvement I have experienced with
my running from just being mindful of my form.

Here are some of the links I have referenced in my quest to perfect my form:

Do you pay attention to your form when you run or do you just go for it?

Do you have any sites or resources you recommend on running form?


  1. It's important to see the progress every now and then. People like to measure things, and without measuring our activities everything will become boring very soon. People usually say it's hard work that makes achieving goals possible but I'd say that the key ingredient of any success is focus and motivation. If you constantly motivate yourself and stay focused you'll easily train hard and make progress. With only hard work and no motivation everything will soon become dull! Regards.

  4. Running is very useful not only from a physical point of view, but also from a mental one. Running as an aerobic exercise helps the brain to reboot, recover and be ready for mental stress. I advise all to run more or get carried away with other aerobic exercises for people who work mentally a lot, for example, writers who work for the affordable term papers service, it is also useful for them to run not only because they work mentally a lot, but also because they have a sedentary lifestyle, because they sit for 8 hours in the office, which is very harmful to health and for the figure. Movement is life! Therefore, even if you do not work mentally a lot or you have an active job and you are actively spending the whole day, running or other physical activity will not hurt you!
