    A quick leg movement where for one moment in each step both feet are off the ground.

    • Lean the body slightly forward and look ahead
    • Raise lifting knee high
    • Contact the ground with the heel when running slowly or with the ball of the foot when running quickly
    • Push off with the balls of the feet
    • Swing arms backwards and forwards from shoulders with arms at hip height
    • Bend elbows at right angles and move them in opposition to the legs
    I can also...
    • participate in track and field
    • play basketball
    • hike
    Self Check Questions:
    • Is my head up, looking in the direction I’m running?
    • Is my right arm moving forward at the same time as my left leg is moving forward?
    • Am I pushing off the ground with each step?
    • Am I able to change the speed of my run from slow to fast to slow again?
