Barefoot Running

Hmm... I actually changed my running style to forefoot strike after the Standard Chartered Kuala Lumpur half marathon 2010 because I was having a bad pain after the race, and not be able to walk properly after the race. My knee hurted like hell.

Everything happened so naturally without myself realizing it, maybe it was to avoid the injury that keep coming back after each mid to long distance race.

There is physic behind it, not simply anything plucked from the air. Watch the video and hopefully it will help you. You don't have to be a barefoot runner immediately, because our legs are pampered for quite some time already, try the forefoot strike, change to minimalist shoes, etc.

Take progressive steps. Good luck!
