News from Geneva. I have now 1.5 year followed the "Eric Orton" exercises  and I run 2-3 times a week. I have slowly (extremely) increased my kilometers and I am now running 10 km 2-3 times a week. I stopped last  autumn 6 weeks running because I had pain like inside the calf bone of my left leg. I never found out what is was. Just to say 3-4 months ago it all came together and it feels light to run, natural, athletic. When I come home from my runs it feels like I could easily run another 10 km or 15 km .  I have worn out my first pair of "Merrel vapour gloves". Just to say thanks Eric, it works, it is a great program ! Whether I will ever do marathons or ultra's I do not know. But just the pure pleasure of running, is for me enough.

Hi Egon, thanks for posting. Geneva must be great for running with the lakeshore and the mountains. I was there last weekend ! Are there many people around you that know about Eric's program ? Here in Grenoble I rarely see forefoot strikers.
