Running Form Questions:
I drew the following illustrations and would like some help understanding this aspect of running. Looking at a lot of my running photos I believe the first image represents how I run. The second image is what I see when I look at Kenyan and other "fast" runners form. I have been doing some drills to help increase my speed but feel like this may be an important aspect of running form to not only make you faster but also more efficient.
I notice two main things: The first is angle "A" is much more narrow on my running form. The second is angle "B" where the foot goes up and back to an almost horizontal position on the Kenyan form. I've tried to do both of these things and find that it is not natural to my stride.
Also studying many of my running photos I do see that my front foot strikes the ground very parallel to the ground and under my body. I worked on this part of my form when I first started to run and feel I have accomplished the mid-foot strike form pretty well. (It took a couple of months to change this part of my form and it was uncomfortable at first. Now it's a natural stride for me.)
Any insight or comments on this form issue would be appreciated!
