I normally don’t do a mid-week update, however a few things grabbed my attention today so I thought I’d pass them along.
The BBC has a piece on how shoes may have changed how we run.
Here is a fantastic video with Harvard professor Daniel Lieberman. It has excellent slow-motion comparisons of the different foot landings along with force plate and graph analysis.
Also, I recently discovered a very interesting blog called On And Off The Track by Steve Magness. Steve’s current posting is about a study on barefooting. And, just a few days ago, Steve wrote an article about Why Running Shoes Don’t Work.
Happy reading, listening and, hopefully, running!
“Running is a privilege.”
