Running Form: According to Photovendo

With the pics taken by photovendo, the pic-taking-during-races company of Photographer on the Run, I got to learn a couple of things on how my form looks like when I run…

I’m a heel striker…

vso-heel-strike

pv1-heel-strike

I flail my arms too wide when I run…

vso1-flail-arms1

vso2-flail-arms–  even when I try to run fast

Will try to improve on these and let’s see if my hopefully improved form will make me run faster (or atleast make me look better in my pics) 😀

  1. I see that you have also discovered Photovendo as very valuable self-assessment tool. Since I was so disappointed with my captured form, I ended up analyzing the form of the top winners. You will discover and learn a lot of things! Thanks, Photovendo.

  2. Hi Joe. Photos are very valuable. However, it’s always possible when you’re at a fast (possibly sprint portion), you might be a midfoot striker. I’m not trying to confuse you or any of the readers but I’ve seen two pics of me this year doing both as a heel and a midfoot striker in the same race.

    Happy Holidays my friend and a prosperous New Year in 2009!

  3. dr joe, i suggest you join the speed training with the rest of the Hardcores at the ULTRA Oval Track on Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday at 5:30-8:30PM. however, starting next month, we’ll have speed training also on Saturday morning from 6:00-8:00AM. the “two wise men” will coreect your form and they will make you run faster, too! see you at the ULTRA. btw, ULTRA is closed fm 25 Dec 2008 to 1 Jan 2009.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!
