  • That is the point I was thinking: landing in an imaginary line below you means you land actually closer to your center of mass every step...well I guess. Pirie talks so enegically about it that made me think he is got something
  • Gordon Pirie says it is a part of proper running technique. Pirie is a british athlete of the 50`s...who writtes this in the 90`s after being a coach for many other athletes. He also writtes about other stuff that is really foreseing much of the min…
  • I absolutelly agree with the importance of insoles. Since I read your review of Brooks Pure Cadence (I think it was that one,) I started to swap insoles and it is amazing how things change in some shoes. I use Inov 195`s  as the "minimal" insloe and…
  • I always thought that racing flats were a kind of invention by marketing experts. Now that I have tried some I have changed my mind. They really make a difference, or at least the NB 1600rc that I use. The stiffer sole may give you an extra impuls…
  • I agree with the point that opinions in Internet are confusing, to say the least.  But, on the other hand..."plantar fascia is not designed to or meant to stretch and there is no exercise that will make the plantar fascia stronger". It doesn´t make …
  • That is a good question: whether or not minimalist shoes are appropiate for racing.  I usually race with Inov8 f-lite 195, at least in 10k races. IThey are light and I love the feeling. But some people bielive that shoes like Adidas Adios or simi…
  • It looks like pronation was the problem in your case (although you cannot be 100% sure). But in other cases, I think people tend to blame pronation very easlily, just because it is mentioned everywhere as an evil thing after all running problems. Th…
  • Thanks for the advices everyone. I finally went for the Adidas, which I got for quite a good price. I haven´t tried them jet, but they feel amazingly nice in my feet when standing. So comfortable!!! Eager to run in them. Zero drop like Mizuno Cursor…
  • Thanks Bryan. I will take a look, but it really fits what I amlooking for; the Adidas is a good choice as well. I don`t mind that much about the drop (I always run with a midfoot strike, no matter the drop; I just prefer low heels).  And, very impor…
  • I am not sure about the go run, I prefer a normal midsole, but the bare access are a good candidate, thanks, I didn't think of them before. As for the levitas...too thin I guess
  • Ok, I see. The go bionic must be similar to the Inov8 195, probably. The midsole looks thicker to me at first sight, and I read someone who used them for long runs despite he didn't use minimalistic shoes that often. But, honestly, thet are much les…
  • So, what you mean is: pronation is not a "sickness" (lest`s put in this way), it is just a characteristic. So, in case you are a strong pronator and it is not causing you any trouble, don`t pay attention to it.... I have read so in your book and i…
