Just shorten your stride and increase the cadence.... that should stop the heel strike (and the braking effect of heel striking - not to mention how much worse it is for your knees)
be careful on your long runs to not slow down so much that you start heel striking .... this could be where the pain / niggles are coming from?
Having a baseline plan that can be flexible and mixing it up so it remains fun in prob the best way - finding a training partner and or club runs are good motivators....
10k training tips on our site too which may or may not be of use
anyone used the 310XT for navigation - we are doing the GR20 soon, so could be useful on that....
The Salomon Sense are an amazing shoe - the ones designedfor Killian - a prettyhefty price tag too. But I'd say worth it if you want the best in trail running race shoes ....
I ran up Snowdon last weekend .... the Salomon speed cross 3s did the trick fine.... just watch your speed on the descent!
