    I've heard from other people

    I've heard from other people that jumping rope is a good tool to help with running form. Have never thought of it during a run, though. Seems like a good thing to try.

    We learned a drill at the

    We learned a drill at the MovNat clinic I attended in May where we pretended to be jumping rope (alternating feet) while moving forward. This was the only drill we did for barefoot running, and it got everyone barefoot running in about 5 minutes. It's the drill I used at the last barefoot clinic I hosted, and everyone said that was when it really clicked for them.

    Yep, I do jumping drills much like this too for my clients. Really gets you in touch with where to land as well as taking shorter quicker steps.
