5 Drills to Make You a Better Runner

These skipping variations increase stride length and knee lift, and improve single-leg balance. Skip for 20 yards, rest briefly, repeat. Do the exercises forward and backward, two times each. (1) Skip forward, raising your knees to a 90-degree angle, while the bottom of your raised leg's foot stays parallel with the ground. Pump your arms in sync with your legs. (2) Skip forward, tucking the foot of your raised leg under your butt, then extending your hamstrings (see photo) before landing.
