The toe strike
The toe strike, or the forefoot strike, is when you land on the toes of your foot first, your heel either barely hitting the ground or not hitting the ground at all.
This is a natural way to run up hills, but some say the toe strike puts too much pressure on your calves. The toe strike is usually reserved for activities like sprinting. Some people recommend that if you want to run faster, especially at the end of a race or to make up time, the toe strike is your best option.
