An Absolute Beginner's Guide to Becoming a Runner
Keep your posture upright, head lifted, back should feel tall, and shoulders level. Keep your pelvis neutral and your hands relaxed. Let your arms swing from the shoulder joint.
As runners get tired, they tend to lean forward or back at their waist. Their shoulders may start to hunch over, which restricts breathing. Try to avoid this. Focus your eye about 10 - 20 feet ahead of you.
