I’m going to need a bit of help with this.
I received my running videos and after looking at all of them I’m not sure I see a huge difference 😐
Have a look, here’s Shoes On:
Here’s Shoes Off:
What do you think?
The one difference I HEAR is the thud-thud-thud-thud in the first video. And I think the other difference is in this:
I’m running with smaller steps when barefoot so I don’t reach quite as far ahead with my heel. That hopefully means when my foot hits the ground, it’s underneath my body and not ahead.
Anyway, a simple thing made complicated 🙂
As far as daily running goes – I’m ok now. I stretch daily, although not twice a day, and haven’t had any ankle or knee niggles this week.
Next run: tomorrow.
Next race: Saturday. 10km in Richmond park.
P.S. Just to clarify – I still run in those black Nike Vomeros, I just run with smaller steps now. Our house renovation is eating up all my money, the new Innov8s or Vivos or Mizunos or Newtons will have to wait 🙁
