  • How to travel in air between strides i.e. covering distance during every stride cycle
  • How to decreasing foot contact time on the ground
  • Ideal running posture for you
  • How to train/condition your myofascia system(muscles & fascia) to gain the appropriate strength and endurance for running (i.e. functional fascia training for running)
  • How to train your body to resist early onset fatigue in running
  • How to recover from running training sessions
