VIDEO: Essential run drills with Kirsten Sweetland

Strides, ABCs bounds, toe taps, dynamic hamstring stretches, 'karaoke', high knees, side skips.

Get properly warmed up for your runs with this routine of run drills from Olympian and coach Kirsten Sweetland. Drills such as strides and ABCs (which she demonstrates in this video, as well as more), when properly performed, aid the runner’s kinesthetic sense, promote neuromuscular response, and emphasize strength development. While it takes a bit of extra time, these sessions are worth incorporating into your weekly training before key runs.
