Friday Thread: Do you pay attention to your running form/mechanics?

Have you ever tried changing your running form, or being intentional about the mechanics of your running — the way you move your arms, the way you angle your torso, the way your feet strike the ground? Were you able to make lasting changes, and if so, did it help you stave off injury?

I’d love to hear what your experience is, as I’ve always been a natural runner — I simply put on my shoes and don’t think about the way my body moves. But I’ve wondered, especially as I’m now 51 and starting to experience more little aches and pains, if I need to start paying attention/making adjustments to the way I run.

What’s your experience been? Have you been hurt, and made changes to adapt? Did it help? Love to hear your thoughts 😃 — Terrell
