With all the talk on the forum about running on your toes and injuries I thought I would share what Lydiard wrote about the correct running technique. Brett has already given the answer on the forum but since people don’t really believe things the first time they are told I will give you a second opinion from Lydiard
This is from “Running with Lydiard”
“Don’t run on your toes… by which I mean, dont land on the forepart of the feet. When you are running aerobically or low anaerobic speeds, the centre of gravity is slow getting over the leading foot, so, if you land on the forepart of the feet, you are getting two much traction on landing and actually developing a stopping motion. This can be the cause of blistered feet and shin splints.
