Run Quiet!

Yesterday I told one of my 10 year old youth runners to "run quiet". We were running along the Monument Valley Trail during one of our weekly winter fitness runs. I came up alongside him I noticed he had a noisy foot strike. I mean really noisy. "Run quiet" I told him, try to run as if you were sneaking up on your evil twin.

With my help, he was able to adjust his arms and his body to stop the noise. It did not last long and I had to reinforce running quiet several times however, if we work on this for the next several weeks I am hopeful to make this his natural style of running. Reinforce running quiet. Why? Load Rate, read the two articles and it will help you understand the concept.
