I have just started a couch to 5k programme foir the second time. the first time I got so far and suffered ankle pain. This took 3 months to recover from. Someone has suggested my running technique is wrong.
I run naturally heel first, and then the rest of my foot hitting the floor. I am now trying to change to running on the ball of my foot, after taking advice. However, it feel so unnatural, and I am realy struggling. My pace has increased but I am struggling. It does not feel natural.
Two questions - is it better to run on the ball of the foot rather than the heel, and how long should it take me to get used to it.
