Last week I had the amazing opportunity to become a certified
Art of Running instructor!
About 10 years ago Malcolm Balk wrote the Master the Art of Running and thereafter the Master the Art of Working Out. (Click on the blue links to see his books on Amazon.)
Since then he has created a course to teach Alexander Technique teachers how to work with runners and walkers.
I took it and was amazed!
How could such seemingly simple movements transform my running?
Plus these moves also transformed my walking!!!
I cannot wait to teach you more about Malcolm’s approach.
Click on the video below. Malcolm teaches you 3 cool movements that will improve the way your legs and feet track while you walk and/or run.
Most of us stand, walk and run with our feet way too close together.
Many of you have heard me say over time that you should be more like the Eiffel Tower and less like The Empire State Building!!!
How your legs and feet relate to each other is called tracking.
These three simple movements will improve your tracking and trick your brain into wanting to stand walk and run with improved balance.
WOW! Such a simple way to get away from old habits. Try these several times then let me know how they work for you!!
I’d love to hear your thoughts about this!
