TJ relax, it was a joke. I think we need sarcasm font for BRS lol
A joke, right.
Fact or fiction? Can’t run barefoot if you have flat feet?
Fact or fiction? Can’t run barefoot if you have bunions?
Myth is grounding thing. Nothing scientific there.
If you go into a store or restaurant barefoot, you'll contaminate the food.
Being barefoot in a store is dangerous because you could step on glass or a can/bottle could drop on your foot.
Bare feet are dirtier than shoes, and that's why the health department bans them in places that sell food. (That could be two, as health departments do not ban bare feet for customers, as far as I know.)
If you go barefoot, you'll spread foot fungi around and infect other people's feet (like athlete's foot).
In many places on the internet, I've seen /s or /jk after a comment that is sarcastic or a joke. That might help. (I thought your joke was funny.)
It was my fault. next time i'll put a /jk or lol and thank you
OMG does this sound familiar...except for the dog part.
Not sure if it’s a myth but in my experience I’m finding you really don’t need safety boots/shoes for construction projects if you exercise a little common sense and caution.
In Canada safety footwear is mandatory for the job site...a mixed blessing I guess...
Legend, nuff said.
LOL at "pounding your feet into submission." I did the same thing.
As for surfaces - when I first went bare several years ago I blistered the balls of my feet which taught me to run light. Then they resurfaced my road - they ground up the asphalt and put down "tar and chip" which is exactly what it sounds like - a layer of tar covered by chips of asphalt. I never could run on it - it's just too sharp and jagged. I just blistered my feet again just *walking* on a similar surface on a local trail.
As for myths, if it hasn't been covered already - "your feet need arch support." If your feet are healthy and strong, they support themselves.
"Come on, magical Tough Foot Fairy! Bless me one night with those super feet that don't blister! I've been good!" That's how I sounded, looking back.
Chip seal! AKA bituminous. After a year they finally smooth out with traffic and are more manageable but that's the majority of the roads near me, too. I still force myself to give them a try when the chips are fresh and sharp. It's incredible form training. No way to dodge anything or escape it: your only option is to step as light as possible and don't scuff. Not fun but worth every step.
Born to Run covered this excellently. How do you weaken an arch? Push up on it from underneath. It's a structure that gets stronger with weight on top of it.
