The FIVE Fundamental Aspects of Good Running Form:

CADENCE Optimal stride rate enables more efficient and smooth movement of body. Experts recommend 160-180 strides per min.
GROUND CONTACT TIME Lesser  the time spent in contact with the ground, the more efficient (and faster!) the run.
FOOT STANCE Foot Strike and footstance can rupture certain areas significantly. For example, Heel strike is not inherently bad, but if coupled with overstriding, causes significant stress on knees.
BODY BALANCE Overloading on one side causes that side to get overused leading to injuries over time.
IMPACT FORCES “Pounding”during landing, or shuffling of feet, can increase impact forces, which over time leads to injuries.
