Yesterday, as I pulled out of the driveway, I realized at the last minute that I had forgotten my cell phone. Although we try to live a primitive, healthy lifestyle, it seems that you are required to be connected........so, I ran back to the house. I was, due to work requirements, wearing "regular" shoes, which are still as close to non-shoes that I can get away with. As I ran the short distance, I realized ............I was HEEL STRIKING! I couldn't believe it, but just having plain shoes on makes it so easy to revert to that when running. I consciously got back up to a mid-foot strike, and I noticed that, with no additional effort, my speed increased. I spend so much time running in Invisible Shoe huaraches that I had forgotten how quickly you can lapse back into bad running habits under the right conditions. It was a great reminder. We run correctly as little kids, then seem to learn bad habits as we get older. I like running like a kid better............
