    You can burn a third more kcal running than walking too :)

    Prof Dan Lieberman has some good videos of running technique on his website at harvard, if anyones interested google “Professor Dan Lieberman Biomechanical Differences Between Different Foot Strikes”.

    Get into the barefoot people, and be kind to your calves – take the transition slow :)
