[00:48] Just because you’re doing drills, doesn’t mean you’re not working out and “getting your miles in”

[01:30] One reason people have a hard time with RunRX in the beginning is that they get so bent out of shape about not running when they forget they are still moving

[03:50] Focusing on the correct movement instead of the numbers can help you run pain-free

[04:40] The gait analysis we do with our students often shows why they are in so much pain from their running practice

[16:37] Here Coach Caroline explores her running practice with extra body weight

[18:25] Why do you want to run? Is it for weight loss, to run marathons, or for social reasons?

[20:01] On our YouTube channel we share all the drills in our 30-day reboot. And, you will get more fit from the drills than just by running!
