I started the programme back in April & love running. I always followed Laura's instructions so started off hitting the floor heel first & still continue to do this. I have increased my distance & followed the speed podcasts (which I love!)
I am now having to rest as my knees are so painful. I've had my gait done (a while ago) I have come to the conclusion that heel striking is causing this pain but I cannot get out of thus habit! I have been reading about 'barefoot' running which discourages heel strikers. I wonder if this would be the answer?
Has anyone made the transition from trainers to barefoot shoes?
