Knee Pain is Gone

Last year a clerk at the running store mentioned I should be running on my forefoot. This was in response to my description of my foot strike and desired type of shoe. Just recently I began practicing the technique of avoiding landing on my heels with any weight and going through forefoot only landings. This was in reaction to sensitivity in my knees, and feelings of the same old soreness that never leaves that area.

The results have been such a pleasant surprise for me in pain free legs before and after all my runs. I am 60 now, and the heel toe transition issue is no longer with me because I do not put my knees through this stress anymore. I let my softer tissues act like springs and quit landing on the rear of my feet, so the muscles and ligaments associated with pushing off are already taught and do not have to snap tight from all my weight having landed on my heels.
