2nd run of week 2 today - it's been a long time since I've run but I have been fairly active with hill walking. It's therefore surprised me that my lower calves are becoming sore during / after runs - but I've seen the helpful advice on this site and will try it out. Thanks!
I was surprised to hear the advice in the podcast to run landing on heal (or heal-strike). From what I've read else where it is a bad idea as running is not like walking but more like jumping and you'd never jump and land on your heals. It doesn't take much of a Google search to find expert running sites that advise not to run on heals (eg Polar or Runners World). Is there a reason for the contrary advice in the podcast, or is it something that would be better corrected in due course?
