Ankle good, running on my toes (forefoot) again

After a couple of weeks mending my ankle sprain it is great to be running on my toes (forefoot) again.

Today is my first day running on my toes again since injuring my ankle.  For the past couple of weeks I have been running on my heel in an attempt to keep the pain away. (No, it didn’t really work.)  It was so different running by heel striking, and I got really tired of running that way.  Truthfully I almost didn’t even realize that I was doing it.  However, I now that I am able to run with almost no pain on my toes I really notice it now.

Running on my heel for the past couple of weeks has really hurt my calf strength though.  I can feel the muscles in my calf after todays run.  They are tight, and a bit painful from getting out of shape while I was being lazy.  I hate injuries!

For those of you that don’t really know what I am talking about you can find out more by watching some videos or reading.  Here is a video that is very enlightening:

Many say that forefoot running can greatly reduce injuries, and also help you use a bit less energy while running.  I do it because it is more comfortable for me.
