Ever heard of barefoot running?
Running as a sport boasts nearly the highest injury rate, in some cases up to nearly 85% in novice or amateur runners . That’s a crazy high number of injuries. Basically, 8 out of every 10 runners experience some kind of running-related injury each year. So, naturally, that means there’s no lack of information on ways to prevent injuries, overcome injuries, and/or adapting running styles to prevent injuries.
One of these topics revolves around barefoot running, minimalist shoes, and forefoot strike technique. And, depending on who you talk to, barefoot running is either a magic bullet that will cure all running injuries or a great mistake runners should never try.
Whether you are a novice runner who runs a few miles per week or ultra runner covering hundreds of miles per month, it can be overwhelming to begin searching through the running information, especially on the topic of barefoot running.
This ebook will help provide some clarity around all of the information you may find on the internet, particularly about natural running and minimalist or barefoot shoes. The information in this ebook comes from clinical research and evidence, and we include all of the references and links to the original journal articles at the end of each section.
What is contained in the following chapters is an exploration of what we call “Natural Running”. We explore how footwear affects running posture and performance, why the way most of us run is wrong, and how to change our stride pattern to capitalize on our natural strengths coming from our anatomy to run longer, faster, and without injuries.
