I'm a new runner but know I'm a heel striker, infact always thought that's how most folk run but been reading a great deal about the forefoot technique etc. Now, my problem is this. I thought I'd give the forefoot technique a try. On treadmill I can forefoot no problem even in my usual shoes, find it quite easy actually but as soon as I get out on the road (in said shoes) I can't forefoot! I was expecting to spring along like a gazelle but looked and sounded more like an elephant that had been on the wine. What's happening? Should I just stick to what I know or persevere? I don't necessarily have any issues with my running but if a new technique would improve it then I'm wanting to do it. Hope that all makes sense? It did in my head anyway
