  • Ian there are certain conditions for which going barefoot is nothing less than dangerous and under certain situations can be life threatening. If you are diabetic for example you are advised not to go barefoot for these reasons. One such thread can…
  • Ian... I personally would advise everyone to have a full biometric check for anyone and everyone no matter what type of shoes you are running in... Only with sufficient information can you begin to address your issues. You also run using your entire…
  • I use profeet in London and find them to be really good, they have given me exercises to do to address some of my issues and explain things in great detail, they also have a quaified podiatrist on site. The only other place I am aware of is stride-u…
  • I naturally midfoot strike and pronate, I run with cadence of 183 and do not heal strike even when fatigued unlike most people who have transitioned. I have had my full biometrics check under a number of occasions. It is possible to pronate when mi…
  • “‘Is barefoot better?’ is the wrong question to ask,” says Lieberman. “The issue isn’t whether you run barefoot or not, but how you run – your form.” http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/general/dare-to-bare-the-truth-about-barefoot-running-preview/8021…
  • Chandl3r -- Body weight excercises are all you need, it may be worth attempt to locate a local body balance class (yoga, pilates, Tai chi) - I really find that this type of class helps my flexability, core strength and stability which works well for…
  • Stephen E Forde wrote (see) .......and trams are from the future right..........? Trams most certainly offer less noise and polution than buses, they have also been shown to be cost effective, reliable and work exceptionally well in places where…
  • My money is on the Merrels making your achilles far worse. I have a pair of trail goves myself which I use when running trails as I like the feed back they give me. Sounds like you need some strength around the ancle and achilles to me. Other than …
  • Im a midfoot striker and i also pronate, im currently running in mizuno waverider 14
  • Skins A400 active for me.
  • I used to drive routemasters when I worked on the buses, the old ones were real pieces of shit. Personally I think bringing them back is stupid, what London needs are trams which are cleaner, and more environmentally friendly and less impacted by tr…
  • Im a big fan of the wings pack, the load is spread evenly over your torso so it just feels more comfortable in general to me, they are also one of the only packs I know which comes in small, medium and large due to the vest aspect of the pack. It is…
  • I've got the xt skin pro its ok, nothing bad or exciting but imho its not a touch on the xt-wings 10+3 vest pack, the xt-wings vest just seems to spread the load weight easier than a traditional pack.
  • Im with iron wolf get a propper bike setup
  • Mick and Phil damn nice guys making the most of a difficult life, and over coming the challenges presented to them.. insperational imho and a example to us all. These two prove to me that no matter if you think you can or think you can't you are pro…
  • Im not sure its going off topic, both side of he debate have been presented which the OP would need to weigh up to make the correct choice as at this time there is no evidence for or against. A statement was made regarding a source of information w…
  • In the interests of a debate based on evidence rather if it is desired I can provide details of the widely available information supporting the statements above, all you would need to do is request it and I would be happy to provide this. These of c…
  • Interesting thing to state Ian can you provide any evidence which supports this claim as the domain barfootrunningisbad.com is registered to someone who is not Craig Payne. The domain owner and registrant is not in the same location as Craig Payne e…
  • Vibram FiveFingers were originally created and targeted towards yacht racers to maintain grip on slippery decks and nothing more, they were not designed as a running shoes and the suggested use of the product for this purpose was by the Vibram CEO b…
  • Giant makes reasonable bikes, although im personally not a fan of the finish they have compared to other brands. I also think that Giant generally underequip their frames. The frame set is worth better components, especially the rear derailler. The …
  • The podiatry profession has noticed an increase in stress fractures inline with the increase in popularity of minimalist running. One brand seems to get mentioned a great deal. An example of such discussions can be seen on podiatry forums such as th…
  • They don't all charge because not all people offering gait analysis services have qualifications relating to biometrics or sufficiant experience. Like it or not it is a tool used to sell shoes. Many retailers get you to run on the treadmil in shoes …
  • There are a couple of gel points if they take the same approach as last year one at mile 14 and one at mile 21 You can get details of what lucozade provided last year at the following url. Worth remembering the bottles are 330 ml and not 500ml like …

  • I would look at open source community projects (they are free) a search engine such as terrier may do what you desire by the sound of it. Personally I would run it on a posix system (Unix, Linux, BSD, OSX) as they generally utilise resources more ef…
  • Im a massive Newton fanboy currently own a number of pairs and state they are my favorite shoes however I am finding them lacking in durability and quality with the same issue experienced in a number of pairs. This is not acceptable to me, as such o…

  • What complete and utter nonsense... how can you say today's modern shoes are the cause of many poor running techniques. There is NO evidence what so ever which supports that statement.
  • Only places I know of are profeet in london and strideuk near hove in brighton, no idea if either of these are close to you, but any prodiatry forum should be able to give some good reccomendations near your local area
