|Running Turnover Drills|
"What's wrong with the way I'm running?" you might ask. "It works for me."
Well, that may be, but when it comes to running, like most things, we're
creatures of habit. You get stuck in a comfortable stride, and as you age, you
slow down. Turnover drills will put the pep back in your step, but the key is
speeding up gradually [source: Galloway]. Once you've hit your stride, start
your stopwatch, and for 1 minute count the times your right foot pushes off.
Multiply by two. If you have trouble increasing your cadence, try shortening
your stride for the first 10 or 15 footfalls of each drill. This will relax your
muscles and improve speed [source: Galloway]. Another trick to improve speed is
to stay light on your feet. Imagine you're running on thin ice. Try for a
clearance of less than an inch off the ground. Another tip: Don't lean forward
that will cut your turnover rate by causing your leg muscles to tighten. Stay
upright, with your head, shoulders and body aligned.
Now that you know how to run a turnover drill,

turnover drills can help more than just your speed.
