Hi everyone, I'm pretty new to the Couch to 5k life- I'm on week 3, but I have a question about how to run most effectively if anyone can help. The podcasts say (if I remember correctly) that the best way to run is to hit the ground with your heel first, but the Couch to 5k 'Tips for new runners' webpage says "Avoid striking the ground with your heel or your forefoot first. Landing on the middle of your foot is the safest way to land for most recreational runners."- I'm very concerned about getiting this right as I have a couple of old injuries on one foot/ankle that I don't want to aggravate- which way is correct?
Thank you in advance!
