Minimalist Running Shoes

March 23rd, 2009 · 1 Comment

Today was the first real run in the new kicks. I’ve read a couple articles about getting closer to barefoot running to force better running form but it was the book, Brain Training by Matt Fitgerald, that made me finally make the plunge. With minimal cushioning in the heel you’re forced to land on the midfoot because otherwise it hurts. Time will tell if this makes any difference in the long run but I have to assume that it’s better running with a more natural stride.

    I approve of this blog post.

    Now figure out why I roll from the outside of my feet to the inside on every stride, and whether or not I’m supposed to.
