Running Technique

I was amazed at this video and this article that somebody shared.
This really seems to verify what I believe about running. In order to protect myself, when running, I would try to "float". In other words, I would try to make sure that I don't pound the ground, and that my feet don't feel much pressure.

The only way to do it, is to use the knees, hips, and connecting muscles to absorb the shock. You almost have to imagine that your skin on your feet has been worn off. Try walking like that. You will probably instinctively try to absorb the shock.

Practice walking like that, and your feet will thank you. Practice running like that, and you'll be much better off.
