Getting Your Running Form Right

February 3, 2010

An interview with running form expert, Jay Dicharry, was published at peak performance yesterday. And just in time. I had just gone for a run and came back feeling pain (more pain) in my left heel and lower back. I knew that getting a good running form will allow me to run more efficiently and […]

I don’t think I’m about to go barefoot anytime soon but I do think it is worth a try. Watch Harvard professor Daniel Lieberman talk about barefoot running, how it can generate less impact and minimize running-related injuries.

Once again, the Great Shoe Debate has been rekindled. Daniel Lierberman’s report in nature (if that’s too technical, read this) sparked a quick response at the running front which was aptly titled: Barefoot Running Goes Ballistic.

Spurred on by The Great Running Shoe Debate, I investigated on barefoot running. To be honest, I felt the whole issue may jolly well be part of a conspiracy theory. I mean, even if it is true that barefoot running is beneficial and wearing running shoes actually harms your running gait and causes injuries (I’m […]
