PostSubject: heel vs forefoot striking in running   Thu Aug 04, 2011 4:38 am

The first 283 runners were analyzed at 15k of a race in Japan in 2004 and 75% landed on their heel and only 4 landed on the forefoot. This being the opposite result of what Pyrie claimed some guy found at the olympics in 76 I think. But better technology may have been used in 2004 and also possibly the other guy was looking at sprinters? Sadly Pyrie isn't considered the most reliable guy.

The replies are somewhat humorous to me. People find ways to believe what they've decided they're going to believe.
Anyway I AM trying to run as fast as the first 283 people in that race, although I've still got some work to do.

Have been completely injury free since I started heel "striking". No knee pain at all anymore. No pain anywhere. Not even getting sore at all and I've really been running hard.
