Quick post here. Based on the number of questions that Jay Dicharry and I received regarding his 3 criteria for a safe transition to barefoot/minimalist running, Jay decided to write a follow up post explaining in greater detail the elements of balance, and why they are important for runners. He also provides a few additional tips on how a runner might work to improve balance, and how traditional vs. minimalist shoes or barefoot can impact balance control.

Jay’s new post, titled “Proprio-what? a deeper look at balance and stability,” can be found here: http://uvaendurosport.wordpress.com/2011/07/14/proprio-what-a-deeper-look-at-balance-and-stability/

I encourage you to give it a read!
