im after a second opinion, I've running for years, and my running times are not bad, ive always heal striked, had a few injurys, little bits of shin splints, but put that down to change in footwear etc,
recently spoke to a physio who measures gait, and she said you should never run on your heals, always on your toes, shorten your stride but speed it up, as its better for you, all the long s distance runners run on the balls of there feet, and its aslo quicker, tryed it and felt really awkward, my back ached and my toes hurt, and though even over a short distance I felt more tired,
has anyone had this, and is it true it's faster to run on your toes, or is it best just to go back to running the way i was before
