What is a “Kenyan” run?

A Kenyan run is named in honor of the incredible Kenyan runners who for years have dominated long distance running.  One thing they are famous for are very easy runs with perfect technique.  Kenyan runs are not supposed to be hard aerobically. In fact they fit into the easiest category of scheduled runs.  But, they are meant to be as technically deliberate and precise as you can make them.  You will notice some key aspects in your program like “mid foot landing”, “quick turnover”, “light feet” and “great posture”.  These are all aspects of running that will not only help you run faster but will help you avoid injuries.
