Just some Tips on Running for you from Dr. Hill 

Should you heel strike or fore foot strike while running? There has been a big movement recently in running to use a fore foot strike, but the research doesn’t support this. It is actually more efficient to heel strike while running until you get to a running speed of less than 6:25 per mile. I don’t think very many of us are running that fast, so heel striking is actually more efficient for slower runners. Now, here is the flip side. If you have chronic knee pain while running, switching to a fore foot strike pattern can unload your knee. So, if you currently heel strike and are thinking about switching to a fore foot strike and you don’t have knee pain, you may want to reconsider and stay with what you are doing. Please share with any runners you know!
