Goal: Improve Running Form

Training to Scale Back: “While it’s important to maintain swimming technique, there are five points of contact on the bike so you can focus on that less,” Kropelnicki says.

Training to Add: “Drills are an important part of training good running form,” Kehr says. “Focus on standing tall, quick turnover and effective running arms.” High knees, butt kicks and striders can all encourage a faster turnover.

Sample Workout: Work on achieving a cadence of 180 steps per minute to help increase turnover and encourage you to land under your body, rather than out in front of your body on your heels.
