The basic gist is that you have to make sure your foot lands below your center of mass, rather than in front of it, so you can preserve the angular momentum generated by gravity when you lean forward. The paper presents the theory with a bunch of equations, then some experimental results showing how well it works. The main bit of experimental data comes from a “49-year-old veteran male runner who had over the years become able to do relatively well on angular momentum-assisted running”—in other wor...
