I was wondering about a bit of barefoot skipping to help avoid the repetition of my tmts problem, if that's what it is. I was thinking that maybe one issue is that I currently drive to the place I run, and once there, maybe that encourages me to do more than I should? At home I can do really small amounts - I can run tiny tiny circuits round my lawn but only have a small paved patio for hard surface. (at present there is NO way I'm running out of my front door!) This morning before doing my Tai Chi on the grass I grabbed a skipping rope and did a little bit of skipping on the patio. The movement felt pretty much like a forefoot landing running movement, and when I tried running out onto the grass the form felt really good and natural. I think maybe one of my problems that led to the pain was having to think too hard, leading to muscle tension when I was thinking how to land my feet. If I don't get any pain today, I'm wondering about doing this for a few weeks just to build up the muscles and let the bones get used to it. Does anyone else use skipping as a kind of small space running?
