The right way to land the feet while running


Posted by Swati S.

The other day, I was running in the park and this guy stopped and told me that the way I landed my feet was wrong. He said that I should land on the toes, while I was landing on the heels. I always thought that there is no ‘right’ way and you should land the way you feel comfortable. However, I did try doing it his way, but it really started hurting after a while. So I have gone back to landing on the heels. But I wanted to know if there is a right way to land on the feet?

essentialy during normal gait you would strike at your heel.  When sprinting you tend to run from your forefoot.  If you were simply jogging, then the guy in the park was wrong!
