Switching from a heel strike to a mid-foot strike was awkward at first but holy moley what a difference!! Knee pain? COMPLETELY GONE! Not only that but I have more power and am able to run much faster now. Granted, my calf muscles were in agony for the first 4 days because they were not used to that motion but they recover quickly and did I mention, NO MORE KNEE PAIN!!!!!
I am through my first 5 (of 8) weeks of Zombies, Run 5K training and for the first time I have some hope that I'll actually be able to run the entire 5K by the time I finish the series!!
