In this video, I want to look at what makes Olympic medalist, four-time Olympian, American record holder, and world-class marathoner Shalane Flanagan such an efficient runner… and give some cues for how you can work on your own running technique to develop a more effective, efficient stride.
I’ll be taking a look at aspects of Shalane’s running technique including running posture, head position, stride angle, arm carriage, stride length and contact pattern – her definite heel strike.
This clip is from the 2012 US Olympic Marathon Trials in Houston where she won the Women’s race in 2:25:38.
How does your running compare?
