Short episode summary

Is your running coach teaching you the wrong way to run? It’s very possible, and one way to tell is if they are using high knees and butt kicks in their drills. You’ve got to change your mindset about running, and use gravity in your favor instead of focusing on pushing and landing because that is when you get injured.
