Robot-esque running style

How can I improve it?

Hi all,

I have recently started running over the rugby closed season to start the season with much better fitness than I have played with before (and to help lose the love handles...)

On the rugby pitch it has often been noted that I run quite flat footed, and in quite a mechanical way. This affects my agility and sprint speed.

Can anyone help me remedy this? Will it come with improved fitness or do I need to re-learn how to run?

There's lots of stuff on youtube on running form; do a search for some of the following:

Alexander Technique

Barefoot running

Naturual running

Chi running

They seem to be all very similar (or the same); but it could be a good place to start.
