Sore Heel and Arch

I've been doing the slant board exercises/lunges and upper body exercises for 4 weeks and wearing the B2R shoes for 3 weeks and I started out feeling great (and probably pushed too hard!).  After a…Continue

"It could possibly be an increase in mileage too soon.  I experienced similar pain when transitioning to the Vibram Five Fingers too quickly.  To solve it, I temporarily went back to my old cushioned running shoes and did a really slow…"

Sore ball of my foot

I have completed the full 20 week training program from the book and am now back with my running group mostly on trails. Its been about 2 months and I've noticed that the ball of my foot (right below my 2nd and 3rd toes) is quite sore. I've tried a few deep tissue massages and usually that would fix it but not this time. Seems to be getting worse so I've backed off the running this week.I'm continuing to do the exercises on the balance board and disc board before each run. It did feel like this…See More

"Thanks for the response Eric, that makes sense.  Is there a breaking point where a high AVG HR is no longer a good thing?   For example, in the 2 races that I ran earlier in the year, my AVG HR was 173 (half-marathon in January) and 166…"

"Good Question Jacob.  The long term goal is to increase your threshold (ability to work aerobically with good endurance) and potential, so this can be simply measured by increasing your AVG HR for both tests. And also DECREASE the difference…"

Finished Phase 1

Posted on November 8, 2014 at 7:24pm 7 Comments

It took an extra week but I've now finished Phase 1 of the Foundation program and I've been pleased with the improvements in my running.

A friend asked me if I thought I was running faster now than before I had my run of injuries and I'm not sure that I am (yet) but I definitely feel stronger and more confident with my running.

Finally Started Foundation Program

Posted on August 23, 2014 at 8:12pm 3 Comments

It's taken 8 months of strength training and limiting myself to 4 x 30 minute runs per week when injury pain would allow to actually start on the Foundation Program.  I suppose I could have started sooner but each time I tried to push myself during that period with hill sprints or strides I'd experience another injury flare up and knew that something just wasn't right with my technique. I wanted to start when I knew that I'd be able to see it through.

I still have some…

What I've learned in 3 months

Posted on April 2, 2014 at 1:04am 1 Comment

Its been 3 months since I finished reading TCI and started on strength training and just under 3 months for wearing my B2R road shoes.  To be honest, I thought I'd be further through the program, especially as I've been diligent about doing all the strength exercises 3-4 times per week but I'm kind of stuck on the Transition phase and not wanting to go further until I've sorted out some lingering soreness in my right heel.

While I haven't progressed along the training program like I'd…
