Barefoot running is a rather controversial topic. So, does it have a place in ultra running? In this article, I give the low-down on why, and how, you might want to integrate barefoot running into your training.
I recently wrote an article on this subject on RunUltra - find the article here.
I hope you enjoy it and that it encourages you to get out there barefoot whether you're a regular runner or not. I really think that barefoot running is an under-utilised training tool. Just remember - start slow!!
I do also strongly recommend subscribing to RunUltra if you have any interest at all in ultra running - there's a lot of good stuff there.
Get in touch if you have any questions or comments - it'd be great to hear from you.
