: I'm a high school freshman who runs cross-country
: for his school, about 5 miles a day practice or
: 3.1 competition distance. However, I have a slight
: problem with my stride. I often unintentionally shift
: into a stride where my feet scuff the ground, which
: really slows me down and takes from my energy. Any
: suggestions on fixing this?
More than likely, this is simply a bad habit. As funny
as it may sound, try paying attention to your stride
during the normal course of the day. If you notice
yourself shuffling along, make an effort to pick up
your feet. Eventually you'll just stop shuffling!
