heel striking wastes energy and can lead to injury. landing on the ball of your foot can also cause injury. A mid-foot strike is best. If you are concerned about heel striking consider getting some minimalist shoes eg. brooks pureflow. These shoes are impossible to heel strike in. However the structure of toe area make them a little awkward to walk in.

Distance can be measured on google earth or on mapmyrun.com. If you are really keen consider getting a GPS watch, it will measure distance automatically but isn't as accurate as measuring it on the web.

anyway just now went for a 7.64k made-up-as-i-went-along jog around the local housing subdivision, took 44:35 (5:50/km) Its normally a desolate sort of place, but the fog and drizzle accentuated the surrounding hills and forests.

Cardio are the best tools for the fitness purposes, that's why most of the trainer and fitness experts recommend the cardio exercise to manage the body weight and enhance the fitness level.
I also do cardio exercise in my routine workout. I do jogging, running, swimming, cycling, and rope jumping in my daily workout.
Through this cardio workout plan I have controlled my weight to great extent and also enhanced my fitness level and stamina for my physical activities.

This is good advice I've found since running regularly it's kept my weight down , if I run before my weight circuit it's kicks what is called the after burner effect , where you can burn more calories when you have finished

For those with very little time to squeeze in a workout I suggest Tabata style workouts otherwise more commonly known as HIIT or High Intensity Interval Training. A quick 5 min circuit, if done correctly, has more effect than if you went for a 30 min run. I stand by Tabata/HIIT and do a 5 min circuit before and after a weight session, have been doing this for approx. 3 months and am now sitting at about 13% body fat, down from 17%. Also, I do regular beep tests every 6 months for work and since jamming Tabata/HIIT I have improved my max out to 12.1 up from 10.4. If weight circuits are done (which in my opinion also help with cardio), strength increases can be seen.
