I've never been good at running. Especially if i am running for exercise.. I go 5 feet and I'm done lol. But today i took off in a full on sprint. I felt like i could have gone a long ways (for me) if i wanted to. But i was just trying to get from point A to point B which wasn't very far (1/4 mile tops). I felt like i had a good rhythm or something.. I didn't feel that normal exhaustion or shortness of breath like i usually feel.. Anyone have any advice? i would like to start running.. but I'm not sure i can get into that groove again.. I did it once when i was in high school and i ran for an hour straight.. Haven't been able to do it again until today (if i would have pushed myself to do it)
My response is in comments.
For learning correct form for running, you can read from chi running - book and videos by danny dreyer (checkout some videos and workouts in youtube or u can purchase his book). It helped me a lot in improving my speed without injury or exhaustion. Then there are scores of workoits focusing on core strength. You can do these to improve balance and gain speed in your learning process. One precaustion though - dont run at low inensity for 30 minutes or under that time as it can stunt your height (medically proven).
Enjoy your runs - it helps me reach my zone.
