The technique demonstrated here is concurrent with a front foot & toes landing (altohugh most forward foot not yet landed). Would definately recommend trying the technique stated in the OP.

No more photos of vases????
don't set him off again.....
In addition to my previous post (should be above on this same page) I would add that the foremost foot of the main runner depicted must travel forward more before being placed. This is both in keeping with the technique stated in the original post and the depiction on the vase.

Just a thought, Parky, but with the problems that you've got with cold feet, why don't you try this technique - might sort everything out for you.
Here are some vases of the hoplitodromos which translates as race of soldiers. I wont say that the depiction on the vases supports the running technique stated in the original post due to the carrying of equipment. I would say that the figures do depict a significant emphasise on placing the foot forward and landing on the front foot & toes. This emphasise seems to be present in all ancient Greek running vases.
I hope people find these vases to be of interest. Now whered I put my shield....
I'm not being funny Ricky, but you're not telling us anything new and this isn't a pottery forum either. I've seen enough Greek vases for now thanks so can you please stop continually posting pictures to boing the thread back to life, I'm getting heartily sick of it tbh
Yeah so you keep saying........
wearing shorts while running is quite a good idea, but you don't see anyone continually posting pictures of people wearing shorts to promote it though do you?
Unfortunately, Ricky, those vases don't support your original post at all. They're just stylised drawings of people so you can't possibly use them as an example of how to run any more than you can use a cartoon of Homer Simpson.
Still researching naked olive oil running. But in the mean time have discovered that Moroccans do not favour front foot running. Indeed you could almost call this back foot running. Where does this leave us, Ricky?

No she means running backwards, of course she meant with the heel. Anyway, isn't it you who calls forefoot striking "front foot & toes" running?
Pot = Kettle
Its a question not an accusation.
Yes I do paraphrase the running technique stated in the original post as front foot & toes. I feel its important to emphasise the part of the foot primarily landed with and the concurrent landing and usage of the toes.
Heres another good vase. Slightly smaller pic this time but you can still clearly see the intention of the painter to depict a placement of the runners foot with the front foot and toes.
Thank you Kryten its nice to post here again.
Such poetry Madlot. Simply exquisite.
