Where's the forward motion?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Bob Nov 24, 2009. 6 Replies

I an "old beat-up" runner, and have been watching the videos and reading the posts on this site. I don't really get the biomechanics. If you're striking the foot below your hips and the rest of your…Continue

Started this discussion. Last reply by Jan Proctor Dec 18, 2009. 16 Replies

Just finished Born to Run while laid up recovering from some running injuries and a couple of hernia surgeries. Looking forward to enough surgery recovery to return to running with some of the book's…Continue

"I would consider consulting a cardiologist for chest discomfort and lightheadedness during long runs, although I'm sure many perfectly healthy athletes feel all kinds of discomforts during these activities."

Bob commented on Eric Orton's blog post You Are Not What You Think
"Great post, Eric! As someone who too readily falls prey to negative self-talk, I'm always interested in strategies to transform it. I became more aware of my own negative self-talk when I started running with others, because I observed the…"

Bob replied to Eric Orton's discussion 20 Days of No Sugar
"Wow. So I guess the "no sugar thing" is over for those of us who, like me, started on August 2 (actually, I think I started on August 3). Funny...I never really noted my start date or counted the days remaining. I was thinking it would end…"

Bob replied to Norman Reitmyer's discussion Heel Pain
"This is interesting to me. While my "injury profile" has improved considerably since switching to Nike Free's and focusing on forefoot/midfoot strike, the one new injury has been what's described here: pain in the heel (not on…"

Bob replied to Glen's discussion Going barefoot leading to more injuries..
"I don't wish to add fuel to the fire, but what did your podiatrist say about your wearing flip-flops?! I'd be inclined to think that those could be doing as much damage to your foot as running barefoot."

Bob replied to Eric Orton's discussion 20 Days of No Sugar
"Hey, Eric. Great idea. Usually, I'm not into quick-fixes and short-term changes, but this 20-day effort is consistent with I happen to be doing anyway and hopefully will give me the extra motivation I need. Couple of quick technical questions:…"

Bob replied to Terry Sanderson's discussion How to Change Running Speed
"Hope no one minds me revisiting this topic, but, recently returning to running, I've been dealing with the same thing. I don't understand how to slow down when I'm maintaining a fast cadence. Seems like the only way to do it is to…"

Bob replied to Amanda M Ryden's discussion shoes and mechanics
"Well, I did have a pair of Wushu shoes waiting for me under the tree Christmas morning. Unfortunately, the size 47s (the largest size I could find) were indeed too small for my size 14 (US) feet (actually, size 13 in one foot, 13-1/2 in the other).…"

Bob replied to isabella konold's discussion Born NOT to Run??? Insights? Flogging? Anything will help!
"Isabela, One thing to consider is finding a running group and running with others. I started this a couple of years ago, finding a group with my local running shoe specialty store, and it totally changed my experience of running. I really…"

Jan Proctor replied to Bob's discussion Footwear for urban winter running
"I've used the yak traxs, and they work great. I live in NH, and it's zero out right now. I used them this week on some trails that had been packed when it was warmer, and then refrozen. Make sure you get the yaktrax pros that have velcro…"

"one more winter gadet! It seems to be gore-tex like waterproof/breathable socks!!! sold at zombie runner.com http://www.zombierunner.com/store/categories/clothing/socks/sealskinz/ And some other winter gear! I will continue to search for more!"

Bob replied to Amanda M Ryden's discussion shoes and mechanics
"I'd like to add that one thing I like about the WuShu shoe concept is that it's counter-consumerism. With regular running shoes, most of us bought into marketing hype. (Remember when one of the advantages of running was that all you needed…"

Bob replied to Amanda M Ryden's discussion shoes and mechanics
"I also was intrigued by the WuShu shoe thing. I was about to get them from Amazon, but then just decided to put them on my wish list as they are an inexpensive holiday gift my kids could get for me if they want (does that sound manipulative or not…"

Bob replied to Bob's discussion Footwear for urban winter running
"I have a pair of Stabilicers. I wore them on recreational runs a couple of times and didn't care for them. Then, last year, I wore them for a 7 mile race because, driving there, the road was covered with packed snow. But once the race started,…"

J-F lemay replied to Bob's discussion Footwear for urban winter running
"Yeah ! I saw those but never tryed. I think the springs would act just like the chains but they don't have spikes! mabe it's more suitable on a snowy sidewalk than in a trail! I will search again for some winter gadgets and will post them…"
