10 Tips to Improve Your Running Speed

#8. Swing your arms

Don’t keep your arms hooked to the side of your body while running. Use them to gain a speed boost by swinging the backwards. This shortens the swing in the front that helps in a quick transition and provides elastic support from the back.

#9. Let go of the stress

Let go of the stress

If you want to run fast, you have to run relaxed. A stressed body automatically causes a deceleration in your pace. So relax your jaw and that body to run faster.

#10. Count your steps

Counting the number of steps you take per minute can help you calculate your stride turnover. Most fast and efficient runners have around 180 steps per minute. So run for a minute, count how many times your right foot strikes the ground and multiply it by two to get your stride turnover.
