From the Publisher
Editors Note Proponents of running either barefoot or in minimalist shoes argue that by introducing a thick layer of cushioning and an elevated heel between the foot and the ground, modern running shoes alter a runner?s natural running form, which leads to injury. Conversely, they posit that a return to a more natural running gait by running in little-to-no shoe will lead to improved form, resulting in lower injury rates.Beginning with a brief history of the barefoot/minimalist running movement, Scott Douglas shows readers how to successfully transition from conventional running shoes to barefoot running or minimalist shoes, how to prepare one?s body for the stresses of that transition, and how to stay injury free in the process. Along the way Douglas offers his thoughts, advice, and training tips in addition to outlining his vision for the future of the movement.Whether readers want to learn more about the barefoot movement that?s swept the nation since the publication of the bestselling Born to Run or want to introduce barefoot running into their own training plans, this indispensable guide contains everything they need to get started.
