Ive been out today and ran 2 miles forefoot striking. I'm finding it so uncomfortable I think I will stick to the forefoot style on the steepest hills where I find it very benificial & much less effort.
As for flat & downhill I just find it so unnatural & its giving me serious calf pain. If I sit for more than 5 mins then get up to walk it feels like the calfs have siezed up until I get moving again
Back to heel striking again for majority of my running !!
