Keep a short little swing of your arms, tight to your sides, with elbows bent at 90 degrees.
Keep a short stride with very little knee lift and a quick turnover with your legs
Feet should land on your mid-foot under your hips – more like a shuffle
Should feel like you could briskly WALK as fast as you're running. Maintain an easy talking pace.
Visit a good running fitness store to ensure you have the right shoes to support your running gait and foot type.
Take in an old pair of shoes so the experts can analyze wear and tear to help determine the best shoe for you
Use your phone or get a sport watch to keep track of your intervals
