Running Training Tips:
Running form can be simplified down to two main things:
  1.  Land underneath your body
  2.  Have a fast cadence at any running speed (90+ steps per leg per minute)

These two things will decrease impact and stress on knees, shins, hips, and your back so that you have fewer injuries and you are able to train harder and longer. It also increases your efficiency and speed because you aren’t creating a braking effect by landing in front of your body (striding out) and effectively slowing yourself down.
