I literally kick my butt when I run - is this a good form? ?

I always kick my butt, even when I'm running slow I try to go high. Is this a good way to run? I'm last so it seems to be working. 


I meant fast.

    If it were a good technique, you'd see MANY other runners doing it. No need for that much knee bend behind you (wasted energy). Find a local track club or running coach to evaluate your gait and help make sure you aren't doing anything that could lead to injury (such as bending your knee so much during running that your foot comes in contact with your bum).

    Go to YouTube and look at videos of good running form. That may help too.
