Started this discussion. Last reply by David Templin Feb 27. 2 Replies

Hey, so I feel that I am ready to begin into the foundation phase, but then, as I was rereading the last sections of TCI, Eric mentions the "preparation phase" again. So, I went to look for it and found it on page 128. There isnt much info about how…Continue

Hey y'all,So I began about 3 weeks or so ago to transition away from a heel strike to a forefoot strike like Eric says in his book. I have tried this before without any information and it went well for several months typically until I started to…Continue

Hey, so I feel that I am ready to begin into the foundation phase, but then, as I was rereading the last sections of TCI, Eric mentions the "preparation phase" again. So, I went to look for it and found it on page 128. There isnt much info about how to go about it other than build up until your ready for the foundation program. How do I know when I'm ready?

Is there a "too slow" for the performance stage?

Hey y'all,So I began about 3 weeks or so ago to transition away from a heel strike to a forefoot strike like Eric says in his book. I have tried this before without any information and it went well for several months typically until I started to hurt. This time, things are going well. Right now, I am trying to get back into running after an injury/move/kid being born, so my endurance is quite low. I'm doing the strength training (more the foot stuff, but I'll start more regular core soon too)…See More
