Strength, flexibility and balance help you run better and avoid injury. Take these six simple tests to assess yours
Thomas Test 2Next, check the angle of the shin from the side (above). Is it vertical or is the lower leg slightly ahead of the knee? The most desirable shin position is 90 degrees in relation to the horizontal.Shin Angle Points90-80° 579-70° 469-60° 359-50° 240-49° 1
Scored 3 or less?If Test 2 was your problem area, this indicates tight quadriceps. A classic quad stretch won't target the rectus femoris, one of the quad muscles that attaches both below the knee and above the hip, so use the stretch above in addition to your usual quad stretch.

It occurs to that the term striking in regard to a runners landing foot insinuates a deliberate attempt to apply force to the ground. As the ambition of the landing foot is to land with minimal impact on the ground surely the term striking is a misnomer with negative potentialy harmful connotations especialy in regard to people injuring themselves by hitting the ground overly hard with there foot .
LOL it must been a full moon.
