The guys and girls did a great job today and got their first taste of a stamina/endurance workout involving running. I have been preaching to them about POSE RUNNING and the proper way to run and gave them a little lesson on what this technique and skill is all about. However, I reminded them it is another skill that we must learn and try to perfect. POSE RUNNING is essential to better running and preventing injuries from incorrect running. They did great today and got through the workout. I could not post any pictures of the girls running today, since I was their buddy runner when they were doing their workout. So, much for my REST DAY!! But it’s all good for the Vagabond Community!!
Here is an article on Barefoot Running and the Importance of Pose Running. Ideally, if we could barefoot run it would be the best simulation to correct our form of running. Running sneakers that are made today, are made for people who heel strike or supinate. They make bulky,overpriced sneakers to keep people from running correctly. The idea was nice, but overall made people worst runners and gave them an opportunity to run the incorrect way!! Check out the article, it is quite interesting.
