    I happen to think it's like squatting.
    Not a backpedal. I know & support Dr. BB's goals (been on the forum for awhile) and running is not necessarily going to help her with her fat loss. Apparently she agrees.

      Squatting is the king of all exercises. 'nuff said

        Running has a long history of supporting fat loss, both through documentation and research. Where people have challenges is when they eat more from it. It will definitely help her, doubly so because she likes it.

            Wore my Brooks today (was giving my feet a day off from my V's), and my knee was screaming at me. I.
            FWIW- I wore my Docs the other day and it felt like I had been kicked in the knees.. I think once you go barefoot.. there is no going back. LOL.

            p.s. I have a pair of new balance minimus and Vivobarefoot's besides VFF's. Love them all!

              I don't know that I'll have much choice during the winter. I think my brooks will become regular wear during winter, with my V's turning into my gym shoes. *Note to self: request V's for Christmas and Mother's Day!*

                  it may very well be the way my foot strikes the ground between the gaits
                  Sounds like your form needs some tweaking. If your knees or calves are hurts you're not hitting the ground correctly.

                    Showed a runner friend where my knee was bothering me & she suggested that it's my ACL. She also suggested I run in the shoes that don't make me hurt. VFFs win. I'm taking off through the weekend so I'm going in on fresh legs.
                    I'm 100% positive my walking form needs tweaking, but I think my running form is okay. I do know I over pronate, but I'm constantly focused on the way I land on my foot and turn over.

                    The pain goes down through the side of my knee to the top of my calf, then cuts across my shin

                      If there are XCL issues or concerns, stretch more and make triple sure that you are doing balancing exercises.

                      I sprained my mcl and lcl, and the the PT was months of stretching and balancing exercises.

                        I'm usually pretty good about stretching, but I will be sure to do every stretch I know twice before racing on Saturday!

                        Although, I should probably start doing it more afterwards, too. I don't normally stretch afterwards, unless I'm in my Vs. Then I do horse riding exercises like standing on the edge of a curb/stair and shoving my heels down as deep and as low as they'll go. Great calf stretch!

                          I lean towards 16 or 20oz curls after a race.

                            curls? The only curls I know involve weights & one's arms
