11 In running

Videos of my running style. With shoes and without.

Running barefoot on treadmill

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 🙁

    I didn’t see much difference, but I am not a pro.Your technique seems fine, your feet are straight and you don’t run toes first! How is the renovation coming along?

    What has been said before. 🙂 You’re more midfoot striking when barefoot, which is supposed to be a good thing.

    Overall, great running posture! (Seriously, first thing I noticed :p)

    Yay for running again, and good luck with the race!
