“Running economy is the holy grail for distance runners, not a high VO2 max,” Josiah says.

Get feedback on your running
To put Josiah’s advice in action we are offering you a unique opportunity to get personal feedback from a professional running coach.
To participate get your friend to film a video clip of you running. For best results – and footage that can be analyzed – a side view is preferable. Choose a flat, straight stretch of trail or road and run at a relaxed pace.
Upload the video on Instagram and tag it with #howdoirun between May 24 and June 11. Professional running coaches Jason Koop and Adam St. Pierre from CTS will analyze the most interesting videos daily.
