    Plenty of people run striking with their heel first, it's part of the reason trainer companies add so much cushioning material specifically in the heel of the shoe.

    Yep. When training for the marathon I looked Into this. Ideal is ball of the foot. But lots of people run the opposite.

    Thats more for support because you're pushing from the heel. You should never be hitting heel first.

    You roll from the heel which is the start of the push. Clearly. I done GCSE P.E so I know what I'm talking about

    No, it isn't. Why would you provide cushioning to reduce the efficiency of your push-off?

    Sprinters dont use support. And they push from the heel. They arent running on their heels though:D

    I ****ing hate running. I keep it to 10 mins a time at the gym, and about 2 minutes of that is a brisk walk.

    Aside form hating it, I've never understtod those people that go running on the streets down roads with busy traffic. Probably ****ing up their knees whilst gasping in lumps of exhaust fumes.

    I have a decent pair of Karrimor trail running trainers that I've had for about 2 years, they were great to begin with but I've had to put gel insoles now to eek a bit more life out of them. They were half price and have done me well.

    I try to run on tracks, woodland, parks and paths etc, mixed ground which is softer overall. Running alongside roads is a nightmare and I try to avoid doing so at all costs. Obviously depends on where you live and what's available.

    It might be nice to get on a treadmill and be indoors in the warm, but they can be just as bad for your shins/knees as a pavement. Having said that, with the dark nights coming in I'm using the treadmills a lot more now.
