Are you a triathlete looking to run faster and more efficiently off the bike? One way to achieve this is by improving your running form. Here are 7 running form tips for triathletes that can help you run better and get faster:
  1. Look Ahead - keep your eyes on the road ahead to maintain proper body alignment and prevent unnecessary movements.

  4. Arm Movements - swing your arms naturally, keeping them close to your body and bent at a 90-degree angle.

  5. Forward Motion - focus on moving forward, not upward or sideways, to avoid wasting energy.

  6. Relax Your Shoulders - keep your shoulders relaxed to prevent unnecessary tension and conserve energy.
