Sample text

Knees: Bend your knees slightly throughout your stride. At no time should they be fully extended. Likewise, do not bend them excessively. A simple method can be used to ensure your body is properly aligned. Stand in a relaxed position. Interlock your fi ngers and extend your hands, palms outward, away from your body. Move your interlocked hands above your head, straighten your elbows, and stretch upward. Th is motion aligns your back and head. Now release your fi ngers and drop your arms to your side while bending your elbows at a forty-five- to ninety-degree angle.

Your Body Is Your Best Teacher Your best feedback will be from your own body. Your brain has the amazing ability to receive feedback from your body, interpret that information, and adjust accordingly. Our thought processes often create a roadblock for this feedback loop. We must learn to trust what our own bodies can tell us. Feel, don’t think. If you feel a shock with each step, you have to modify your form until the shock disappears. Your body is the most efficient running coach you can employ.

TIPS ON BAREFOOTING ■ I think barefooting is about more than just being barefoot. It can signify a shift in your perception of the world.

In life it is important to remember that just because everyone else is doing something one way, it may not be the best way. ■ Start slow, and give your feet time to adjust. It takes months to build up additional padding in your feet and for the muscles in your feet to adjust.
