To have the most efficient foot strike we must pull from the ground every time we run. To understand this movement pattern you can practice with a jump rope. (I love the RX Smart Gear ropes)
Step 1: Begin by starting with single jumps
Step 2: Continue jumping with only leg pulling from the ground at a time
Step 3: Make sure your feet are pulling straight off the ground, through the inseam. You can think foot to beside the knee
Step 4: Kiss your heels with the ground every time
Step 5: After a few rotations, release the jump rope and continue this form, running out from the jump rope.
