This tip comes courtesy of my friend Lieutenant Colonel (Dr.) Dan Kuland, who, before he retired, was U.S. Air Force Chief of Health Promotion.
“Lengthen your posture while running by imagining a helium balloon attached to your head.”
My mid-western grandmother always told us to “hook your sternum to a star” as a way of ensuring we would stand up straight.
My head is a helium balloon!
I’ve been trying this for the past week or so. It’s also helping me land lighter – much better than imagining I’m running on eggshells, which just makes me tense up!
