Anyone else runs barefooted?
Or is just me?
I do lol
Did you change your stride at all? I've heard it's good for preventing injury, but I haven't look in to it to much. Any suggestions?
You could step on glass, a rock, a nail, or anything else! What are you, crazy!!!!!!!!!
Yeah in the pool
Good to know im not the only one
From the get go running barefoot actually gives you the natural posture and stride that will best adjust with you ..i suggest you do it out in a grassy area where you know there wont be glass or much thorns get the feeling ..dont think it too much and let running just guide you ..ever since i started doing it shin splints are a thing of the past and so was the minor pains i'd feel on the knees and lower back once in a while ..the book Born To Run will change your whole persective give it a read ..thats where i learned most of the stuff and lead me to this running style
Ive been running cross country for six years now, between 60-90 miles a week depending on the point in my season. I run barefoot 2-3 of my 6 runs a week. It helps strengthen your feet and ankles and promotes a very healthy, Natural running form for your body. Just be careful of the surfaces you run on. Ouch! Lol
I was told that running on soft ground such as grass patchs etc is good but pavement or street not so much then you need cushion for your joints and you get this thanks to good sport shoes
Pick up some vibrams..they wont disappoint...wear mine allll day
I might start running barefoot what u think?
I mean on the pavement, cuz theres the risk of running on glass isnt there?
Im wondering is it good to run with those skele toes shoes, you know, the wons shaped like a foot
Haha yeah I wear them during workouts and just casually, they definitely get me some weird stares haha but they are awesome!!!
I run on my treadmill barefooted but it makes my feet black...
I run faster bare footed, I think its because I tend to run pushing from the balls of my feet rather the heals.
Yeah thats how you sprint, running on the balls of ur feet. Im into sprinting.
Yeah its funny seeing the looks but they really are comfortable
