Running Barefoot- Technique and Advice
Hi everybody! I'm a couple months into living PB, and I'm doing well. PB only slightly conflicts with my goal of running a marathon by the time I'm 30 (April of '12) and so I've begun training with the intention of running a marathon in fall of '11.
I've had limited running experience before, so in some ways it's good because I don't have bad technique or form to correct. But I need to CREATE technique.
I bought a pair of VFF's (LOVE THEM!) and I've been reading online for advice, but although I've found videos I haven't found a lot of specific advice. I went for a short run yesterday, focuses on staying on the balls of my feet, in order to not heel strike, and lifting my feet. During the run I was worried about my Achilles heel's, and today my calves are quite sore.
So I look to the experts here, help? advice? resources?
