Last night I tried the forefoot strike and have to say “colour me impressed”. You can really feel when your falling back into a heal strike, the muscles you use are completely different. Chi running was advising to run leaning forward and pushing off with your calf muscle, this really does feel correct.
When I woke up this morning I felt some burn in my calf and main leg muscle, where as before I would feel the pain in my knee’s and front of my leg. Burning is much better then pain as when it burns I know it is just my muscle repairing itself, where as pain just plain hurts.
Tonight is gym night so when I hit the treadmill will continue with the forefront strike so I can make it a subconscious habit.
