Facebook Live- Why running quietly is important!

Facebook Live 17th December 2019

Our tip for today is run quieter and lighter. Some of you may recall Newton's 3rd law of motion: Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. If we apply this to running for example, the harder we hit the ground, the more vertical ground reaction forces are generated and sent back to our joints and the rest of the body. Our aim is to move forward so if the force is generated back to us, it'll push us up rather than propel us forward. So next time you run, try and caress the ground!
