The truth about running and how to make it feel GOOD and INJURY FREE!
I was looking for running shoes online because I really want to get in good shape. What worried me about running are pain and injuries…
True, barefoot does rock, &interesting video.
I’m busy saving my pennies for a pair of kevlar soles on the advice of a personal trainer. Rebuild my feet muscles sans big trainers with none of those pesky pebbles or bits of glass to trouble me!
It’s not the pebbles I worry about, it’s all the broken glass and even potentially something as dangerous as dirty needles. There are shoes that mimic barefoot activity though and seem quite cool to me. Check out http://www.vibramfivefingers.com/index.htm
I bought some FiveFingers two months ago and I love them! I wear them everywhere except out to clubs because they’re so much more comfortable and agile feeling than normal shoes. Running in them is awesome. You know how you feel so much faster when you run barefoot? Well now you can do that all the time :)
Thank you for your inputs! :D
ALOHA—I walk barefoot most of the time all year round. Lots do here and when things are real hot on sidewalk or sand I do not even notice the tempature difference any more. We go in stores and malls and lots of places without shirt or shoes . My feet use to bother me but I adapted to conditions. Just wanted to day nothing wrong with it if it’s what you want to do. Just wanted to give my thoughts . MAHALO
I just ordered this book on running, anyone read it?
Ina I got a pair of those shoes Jordan was talking about a week or two ago–I LOVE THEM!!!!! (*edit–$110 pair for $50 something on ebay!)
agreed, there is nothing like the feel of earth beneath bare feet. But I hadn’t had any luck running barefoot until my cousin taught me the technique earlier this summer. I am just beginning to get used to it as it’s a major transition, but it feels amazing:
Apologies if this was covered in the TED talk, I had it on in the background while working and didn’t hear him discuss this particular aspect.
