Does anyone here analyze their running form?


As I said in my intro post I'm a golf instructor, so I'm very interested in the form. I'm also new to running, so I am at the point now where I think everyone should get golf lessons, and I'm taking the same approach to running. I want to do this right from the start and not develop bad habits.


I shot some high-speed video of myself running around the indoor golf academy, and I used some video analysis software I wrote to look at the videos.


On the left you'll see I'm trying to force a heel strike and succeeding. On the right I'm overdoing a fore-foot strike. Ignore the caption: though I'd prefer the form on the right over the left it might be a bit too extreme. :-) (And there's more to form than the location of the strike.)


So that's my question: how many of you analyze your form?

My form is starting to smooth out this month from the extended mileage.
