The downside of improving your running form and becomming a more efficient runner is that you'll stop losing weight. That's what's happened to me. Unless I add more miles, I've become so efficient in my running style that I don't burn as many calories as I used to. OK, I may also eat too much at supper and I do love my salty snacks so those may also be contributing factors. But the fact is that I don't consume as many calories as I used to from running.
There is an upside and it's this: I'm running comfortably and injury-free. And there is a lot to be said for that. Improving my running form has not been easy and it's taken some time but it has been worth it. I've incorporated many of the tips below into my running. Try them and let me know your results.
Until next time...
