I am trying to returning to trail running after a considerable hiatus. I've been a fan of "barefoot" running, although I didn't actually run barefoot, but with thin-soled shoes. I grew up wearing moccasins and still wear them a lot, so I'm more comfortable when I can feel the ground. I'm curious about whether folks have used this app successfully for train running. I'm also curious about thoughts on trail running technique and equipment, especially shoes. Thanks!
I've been an on again off again walker for about a year now, but the doc says I need to make it an everyday thing. The only time I can find to get in the exercise is first thing in the morning as soon as I wake up. I've been trying to add more running to my walking to ease into it, but I find it to not be enjoyable. I'm overweight and I've never been a runner, so I'm sure my technique is completely wrong. I do have comfortable shoes--Brooks Beasts--and they provide excellent support, but I still get some shin pain. I don't believe these are splints, but I'm not sure. Does anyone have advice/sites for helping me use the proper running technique? I know I need to ease into it so I've been doing intervals as best as I am able, but I really want to get up to speed (no pun intended) as quickly as possible so that I can get more benefit out of my morning walks/runs.
