Allen, would you mind describing what you consider to be the "midfoot?"

George, if you were to land with your entire foot at the same time, the shin angling forward as the foot stays in place would not create any eccentric contraction, from what I could tell, since the foot has already full planted itself on the ground. It would be just like doing a standing calf stretch, but repeatedly and over a shorter ROM.
