Barefoot Runners Society
Zaterdag 21 juni heb ik aan de Groot Ginkelse Loop meegedaan.
Afstand: 21,1 km (halve marathon)
Plaats: Wekerom/Ede/Otterlo (de Ginkelse Heide en de bossen hier omheen)
Ondergrond: de hele afstand kun je op enkele stukken na kiezen tussen beton/ruig asfalt of zandpaden waaronder mulle ruiterpaden.
Voor mij was dit mijn 2e halve marathon, de eerste op blote voeten. In de maand er voor heb ik over dezelfde paden (woon in de buurt) 3 long runs gedaan van ruim 16, 19 en 21 km. Ik wist dus wat ik kon verwachten ook qua ondergrond (prima te doen, als je in het bos kunt lopen kun je dit ook). Mijn doel was om sneller te zijn dan de vorige keer op schoenen (2:17:53 incl flinke hongerklop=wandelen laatste 3k)....
Barefoot Running Survey: Evidence from the Field
Open Access funded by Shanghai University of Sport

A growing group of runners are making the choice to try the minimal or barefoot running styles of the pre-modern running shoe era. There is some evidence of decreased forces and torques on the lower extremities with barefoot running, but no clear data regarding how this corresponds with injuries. The purpose of this survey study was to examine factors related to performance and injury in runners who have tried barefoot running. To continue reading, please visit:...
11 Reasons Podiatrists Dislike Bare Feet
Maybe it’s time I did a listicle.
Yesterday, over at Barefoot and Grounded, Michael Buttgen had an excellent and interesting posting that got me thinking. The posting was Studies? We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Studies (to Live Barefoot)!.
In it he addresses the fact that so many (mostly podiatrists) who are against going barefoot keep saying there isn’t enough evidence to support the idea: “Studies have not been able to show that going barefoot is better for you than wearing shoes.” He points out that that is totally backwards. As he puts it...
Support Your Club
The Barefoot Runners Society needs your support.
As you know, the BRS is funded and operated solely by its members. A modest income from advertising and tee shirt sales no longer covers the monthly costs for running and maintaining the site. That's right. We've grown by leaps and bounds this past...
