Forefoot or rearfoot? Where should my foot land?

Forefoot or rearfoot? Where should my foot land?

There is and has been for sometime a big discussion on which part of the foot you should strike the ground with first when we are running. The rearfoot strike has been said to be the worst way possible to run and you should strike first with the fore to midfoot in order to reduce injuries, increase running economy and perhaps even bring about world peace.

This article by Tom Goom at Running Physio looks at whether or not you should switch to a more forefoot running pattern or not.
