|Subject: ||RE: Do elite runners focus on form?|
Right, but people often confuse efficient with "looking good". Salazar is a prime example, he shuffled his way to a 13:11 5,000 and there is no possible way he could have changed his form to look like Coe. As ugly as he looked he was pretty damn efficient. Same with John Treacy. You can do strides, drills and hills to help get more efficient but you can only change so much. It's way more complicated than people think, it's not like learning a proper golf swing or a tennis stroke which are difficult in their own right. Even Salazr admitted that trying to change Ritz's form was a mistake and led to injury.
