I try to avoid heel-striking but on distances over 8 miles if I'm tired I sometimes find myself landing on my heels. I believe heel striking is a lazy form of running which puts too much impact on bones and joints and leads to a lot of running injuries.
LOL @ "lazy form of running". You want opposite of lazy? Why don't you run in a super crouched position so you can eliminate all high-rate loading?
