>General Running>Carioca's land on there forefeet.
Carioca's are people from Rio De Janiero.
I was in Rio for a few weeks for the Holiday's and noticed that the many runners are almost exclusively fore foot strikers. My wife a Carioca's told me that that is the way she was taught to run in grade school.
Taught, eh? The only instruction I got in running came from places like RA, and not until I was well into my 50s.
Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.
I thought my wife was kidding until I started learning about running form. such as Chi running, Pose method, etc.
I was a heal striker back then and thought that was the best way to run. I currently am a mid foot striker and I am trying to increase my cadence to the elite standard of 180 from my current 160.
