I've been experimenting with the way I land when I run as I struggle with hip and knee pain. I've found that landing more towards the ball of my foot (not right up on my tiptoes but just not letting my heels touch the floor) makes me feel a lot lighter, makes running seem easier and seems to take some of the strain off my hip. However I was reading around and I've seen some claims that running that way can lead to shin and other lower leg injuries. I've also seen claims that heel first running is the culprit for injury.
Is it simply a case of what works best for you or is there actually a right way?
