    Heel-strike = potential symptom.

    Over-striding = root problem.

    Dr. Mark Cucuzzella has done multiple full marathons in totally bare feet. His heels are fine because he expertly knows how to manage running economy. He keeps his feet working the ground directly under his hips and doesn't over-extend his legs and feet either in front or too far behind.

    If you're over-striding your lower leg is raked out in front of you at an angle. One very visible effect of that is the relaxed foot will land heel first due to the angle of the lower leg. The reason that kind of move should be avoided is it's a braking move. You're putting the foot down while it's still moving forward relative to the ground. Do that in bare feet and you get more than just heel pain you get the skin on your feet chewed up from all that harsh braking. Put shoes on and you don't notice the braking until weeks or months later when you've got worse injury further up the body. If you don't stop over-striding and simply point your toes down to touch first instead of the heel you've solved nothing, are still slamming on the brakes and have simply shifted the abuse of that wasteful move to different muscles and joints.

    Still, all that said, Dr. Cucuzzella isn't even heel-striking. He's landing solidly midfoot. Right up until the last second it sure looks like his heel is going to hit but he starts moving his feet backwards relative to his body the last instant before they touch making sure they're at 0mph relative speed to the ground at the point of contact. Even if his heels occasionally touch first it's not an issue at all because he's not incurring braking forces. That kind of move also won't hurt his heel just because it kisses the ground first.

    Running is a full body movement. Forget about your feet or you'll end up micro-managing them, overworking them and screw up your movements.

    Exactly what I was going to say...
    Except that when I wrote it it just read as “....looks like he’s landing pretty flat to me...” :D
    -think I need to work on my narrative...;)

    I was an English undergraduate student for 13 years so that's how come I write so much. ;) You can be a total tourist and get your BA in English in 4 years but to achieve my pro-level you gotta go at least a full decade.
