I had a big selection to choose from again this week. I have chosen the posts that I kept going back to to read again.
1. Post of the week is from Daniel Cipriani. Daniel runs the Functional Foot blog and is one of the biggest retweeters of my posts. This post is on Sockwas website and sums up his thoughts about Sockwa so far. A good review from a reliable source. Check out his other posts on his blog
This post from the Natural Running Centre is perfect for me. I have trouble with my glutes. A pretty good descrition of my symptoms and a clear instructional video to help sort things out. Thankyou.
I have recently read Eat and Run by Scott Jurek and my mouth watered when he described the wraps he took with him on his long runs. I have never done that. Ross does and even has a link to some Chia Peanut Butter. I may have to consign my jelly beans to the bin, this sounds much better.
It draws the analogy between wearing shoes for running and walking with wearing cycle helmets. It challenges the conventional wisdom of wearing a cycle helmet and discusses the way a helmet can alter the impact with the ground. I have read it a couple of times and can’t make up my mind. See what you think. I really like the quote: ‘ the ancient Zen mind-trick known as “looking where they’re going” ‘
5. Greg Woods is a member of our Barefoot Beginner facebook group and we have seen enough of his feet to know that he thrashes them about barefoot. This is his summary of ChiRunning by Danny Dreyer on Birthday Shoes. I must declare that I am a fan of ChiRunning. It got me started on this barefoot journey. It was good to hear Greg’s views.
