How to Run with Proper Form and Technique

Find Your Stride with Our Running Guide


  • Before I had read this article I would walk/jog/run while breathing in through my nose and out through my mouth. I would always get those side stitches so I will definitely practice the belly breathing. It'll be a challenge trying to focus on that while running but to not have those side stitches would be wonderful they always hold me back from continuing. I've also been having trouble with what exactly my foot strike should be I was running on the balls of my feet is that bad form though I'm still kind of confused by that. Great and very informative article though thanks a bunch!! - 8/2/2012 3:25:38 PM
  • Great article. Getting the form right is a challenge but, adjusting the swing of my arms has helped. I will try fixing the face :) - 7/19/2012 4:38:59 PM
  • Without meaning to sound disrespectful, I 'd be happy to just be able to RUN again

  • Thanks for the great read, Nancy. This is the second time I've read it and will continue to do so as a refresher in my journey. I've learned a lot from your contributions and guidance. All the best....Monty - 5/17/2012 9:12:58 AM
  • Great article!! I'm just starting out and very guilty of the shallow breathing and always looking down. I have a hard time with looking up. Too much track work, I guess. I'm going to go down the list one at a time and work on each area. Thanks for the great article! - 10/25/2011 6:53:51 PM

    i only wish i could run , i used to when i was younger ,, now that i am alone , the kids are gone, no man,, i cant do alot of things i used to do or want to do. i can walk a bit of distance, i wrecked my achillies tendon in my right foot, 10 yrs ago, and it didnt heal properly. Any suggestions? i also have arthritis in my low back, along with slight scoliosis. i can walk , but have to sit every so often. - 7/9/2011 11:27:19 AM

  • Great article!! I'm just starting out and very guilty of the shallow breathing, which is my biggest struggle right now. I can handle a lot of soreness during a run, but I've got to breathe!! - 3/18/2011 11:27:07 AM
  • I have gotten those "side stitches" while running and didn't know why. I will have to practice the belly breathing! Thanks for all the great info. I will print this and keep it for reference because it is a lot of great stuff to know. - 11/23/2010 7:42:12 AM
