Wrong & Right Way to Run in Place

Is there a correct way to jog in place?

Running clothes - 1980s

Digging those 80s fashions!

Way back when headbands, leotards, slouch socks and even Marty McFly silver shoes were in fashion, there was  high-impact aerobics and few other indoor cardio options. And so we jogged in place. Same with runners getting revved up for the big outdoors. Took a while (and some ice, shin splints,  ace bandages and research) before we realized there was a wrong and right way to get our cardio legs running! Well, here it is, well into a new century, and often we still see the style that will cause leg pain and injury! Yes, we see you kicking back (literally).
