Have a look at the cover to this issue of Runners World.
I can’t really believe they would put a picture of a runner with such terrible form on the front cover!
If they are aiming at beginners with the article “Beginners – better results in just 1 mile” and telling people they can get “superfit in half the time”. Then I think a focus on form should be paramount.
I haven’t read this magazine, but I’d like to think the selection of the cover photo was based on other merits. If you’re interested to try it you can get 3 issues for £3

Just my opinion.
