Running relaxed and tall is a phrase you’ll often hear; the good news, is that it’s a simple trick to learn.
- Tightly clenched hands or fists will result in tight neck muscles and a rigid form that burns a lot of energy. To cure that, simply run holding some toilet roll cardboard tubes and don’t crush them. It’s surprisingly effective. No crushing means no tension!
- Invest in some running sunglasses; not necessarily for the look, rather for the way they reduce the tension, again through your neck. A tightly furrowed brow as you squint into the sun isn’t good; a cool, relaxed look is. Again, simple!
