Paul Mackinnon, known as the Balanced Runner is a Melbourne-based running technique coach and chats with Julian about his hockey background, how he got more into running and how he gets athletes to feel their flow.

Paul explains what makes him different to the traditional clinical approach, how he teaches to focus on cues to improving self-awareness on running form and talks about who he works with and what he hopes clients learn in terms of movement and flow through some of the success stories he’s had, as well as how he gets people to become more engaged in their running.
