- Born to Run - by Christopher McDougall about native Mexicans
- Running with the Kenyans by Adharanand Finn
- The Bolt Supremacy by Richard Moore, about Jamaican running
Here's a good-ish article that argues the point, although I can't yet get my head around the advent of poor running style in young teens as a result of education..??
Perhaps it's also to do with too much sitting down.
- I can tell that my feet are a LOT stronger.
- There are still muscles and ligaments/tendons in my legs that ache, but I'm keeping a close eye on them - nothing out of control.
- I'm running every other day, for between 20 and 30 mins
- I had my second completely barefoot run on a tartan track yesterday. Just 3km this time, so no blisters! I can see why Keith says you'll develop good style faster with no shoes on, though. Even though you can still get away with planting your heel in the rubber surface, the feedback through the foot from the landing/take off is a great constant reminder.
