What is Good Running Technique?
To stake my ground, I believe that it is not which part of the foot striking the ground first that is consequential to an efficient stride but rather where in relation to the hip the foot strikes that makes the biggest difference. This is nothing new; the momentum-killing, braking forces that result from a foot strike in front of the hip is well documented and my runners have experienced marked improvement by learning to shift their strike-point rearward, from in front of their hip to directly underneath it.

Do these constantly and you will notice a difference.
