Why Do We Need Running Shoes?

Why do we need running shoes?

This is an interesting question…

While shoes are hugely in the market for keeping your feet healthy, things I have experienced have made me feel otherwise.

With the frenzy of injury while running, we are so eager to get the right fitted running shoe. Protection while running is extremely important, because they say if we don’t have the right support we could end up with hip, knee, shin, back or feet injuries to name a few! I do believe this to a certain extent! But…Are we all being sold a bunch of bunk? I mean listen we weren’t born with shoes on our feet, we actually learned how to walk better and learn faster as infants with no shoes. It looks very awkward watching a baby try his first steps in shoes compared to watching him/her learn on bare feet!

  • Does this hype wearing highly conditioned and expensive shoes have merit?
  • Did we just teach ourselves to need shoes?
  • Have we conditioned our feet that way?
  • Are they running shoes or running shields?
  • Does Fashion have something to do with it?

Yes, yes, yes and yes!

With technology there is the advent of change, change for the better shoe. We need a good looking shoe with lots of protection from the constant jarring from running and we need a shoe that will last…Because we have out of shape feet?

 

Is this why we need running shoes?

  • We need an expensive well supported shoe so that are feet can relax and our minds can go back to better things. Like dreaming about the next running shoe idea…
  • Do you think that we have been brainwashed and taught to think that we need the good looking shoe with super protection?
  • I guess it just isn’t ethical to run bare foot because you might step on something. Uh…Mostly the ground, something our feet were made to step on.
  • Our feet are conditioned and don’t know how to walk comfortably barefoot let alone run. These running Shields protect us from everything, even from remembering how to walk properly. We get a shoe to do that for us.
  • Don’t forget that we need something on our feet to look better than us…Are we not beautiful anymore without accessories?

Think back…
So when did the old added support for your feet come in? Interesting…In the 50s, 60s and 70s our shoes had limited support. I don’t remember worrying too much about support…

Although I was quite young…It was really how fast the shoe was, by making better traction and a lighter shoe. I remember a pair of Adidas that I never wanted to give up, they had hardly anything to them except the cool strips. It was almost like running barefoot. I had to get rid of them because both my baby toes were shooting out the sides!

Support really came in the late 1980s with the Michael Jordan’s celebrity induced, Nike Air Jordans and then shoes just blossomed from there…

 
Just my theory…
I think that our shoes today have almost so much support that we are actually causing ourselves injury…We seem to always need something on our feet. By the time we have spent at least 20 years with so much foot support we risk injury. We risk injury walking around on bare feet. I wonder how many people had planters fasciitis in the last century? Isn’t that partly caused by an inflexible arch?

So this is my thing…I had a sore foot for the last 2 months and had to take a lot of running time off. I went away on vacation and went barefoot in the sand. We were at the beach, so why wear shoes? All week I spent the time on my bares! I did worry a bit because I always wear shoes and supportive slippers at home…I really worried I was going to make my injury worse! Funny thing is my feet felt better when I got home and I felt like I finally gave my feet exercise! Exercise you say? Yes exercise…I know it sounds silly, but I now believe if we don’t have to wear shoes, we should be going more barefoot.

Our feet are becoming out of shape, weak and too supported. We don’t know how to walk on our own two bare feet because were so used to being supported. Needless to say I came home and wore shoes again and the pain in my foot came back. It is either one of the pairs of shoes I wear or maybe a hint that my feet need better conditioning without the super foamed supported shoes.

 So now I walk bare foot whenever I can and I also have found some super exercises to do for my feet while I go barefoot. A runner may always say, “Don’t neglect your feet and always get a good fitted shoe.” This is important…But you gotta wonder… What really is neglecting your feet?

The Benefits of Walking While Running

admin No Comments


RunningMySpace

Stepping out your front door…

You may immediately set sail, whisking those happy feet into a running trot only because you are crunched for time or don’t know any better. You think your doing yourself a favour embarking on this running thing!

Your are – nevertheless your run deserves better!

Not warming up or cooling down…

Could have dire consequences on your running and have you missing out on something so wonderful, eventually leaving you to abolish running forever!

When I get back from a fantastic run, I’m hooked on the positive and everything comes my way!

I know you just want to run and get going, but the benefits of walking before, during and after your run are huge. Most people don’t know why they feel so awful when they run and chalk it up to just a bad day.

Let’s look at some of the uncomfortable ailments runners can be plagued with and the four best times to walk.

These might be your problems…

  • a side stitch
  • sluggish legs
  • aches
  • pains
  • shortness of breath
  • lightheaded
  • headache
  • disappointments
  • slowing times 
The point is You go out to run, feel good and keep feeling this good all day!

 

Four Best times to Walk

1.  In the beginning walking sets the stage…

You get to reflect on what you’re doing for your run and how you’re going to do it. Walking is good in the beginning, all those muscles are getting ready to work and all those organs are getting ready to expand and pump. This all happens gradually and walking will do this comfortably and gently for you.

If you think of your car in the winter, it needs time to warm up or else it won’t sound or feel good. Your car will drive rough and you will feel the need to go back.

2. Walking relaxes your running in the middle

While running you can do intervals of run/walking and walking which is great for recovery.
 Running for 2 or 10 minute intervals with walking breaks between each run, will get you ready for the next interval! This is great for beginners, for 5K training or even marathon race training!

3.  Walking completes your moments…

Walking is the BEST tool to cool down your heart!
After you’re finished running, walking helps lower your heart rate and blood pressure towards normal. If all of a sudden you stop, blood rushing to the heart suddenly slows, surprising and depriving the brain of oxygen! Your heart needs to slow down gradually or you will feel uncomfortable and feel lightheaded.
If you’ve ever seen people get very red faced and pale, it’s usually because they didn’t do the crucial cool down.

It could even be dangerous for people with unknown heart problems.

4.  Walking when you don’t feel like running…

After a busy day, it’s nice to smell the roses and just walk. You don’t always have to run! You’ll actually feel better about running if you give yourself the kindness of a break by doing a brisk walk instead.

RunningToday don’t forget to apply a walking plan before, during and after your run. If things just don’t feel right, keep going and make it a walking day or add more walking in the middle of your run!

Only 10 minutes of walking is all it takes in the beginning and end of your run to get your body and heart ready for what is next to come …

********** I always recommend a doctors check up before starting any exercise program, especially if you are over the age of 40.**********

Yoga to Prevent Running Injuries

admin No Comments


Doesn’t it seem that once you get one running injury under control another one creeps out right behind it? 
 Or when you’re in the depths of a
 learn to run program or training to run a 5k, 10K, Marathon or Ultra Marathon you have to quit because of an injury…

It can be so frustrating trying to prevent running injuries! 

One of the best ways to protect yourself from running injuries is to do stretches, but doing this is sometimes not enough.
  Your body needs alignment and proper stretches to prevent injuries.
 Your body needs a program that does all this to prevent running injuries.  This is where Runner’s Yoga comes in. This system has helped me stay injury free for awhile now!

www.runningmy.com 30 minutes of Runner’s Yoga 

compliments your running program and your life!  

My Story and how I got Interested in Runner’s Yoga…
Awhile back… I had a nagging hip injury that started from running with shin splints, caused by improper posture and strengthening.  I came upon a site where a person commented negatively about running and how the injuries runner’s get – eventually cripple the body!
(I hear people say this kind of thing a lot…)
The commenter thought running was really bad for you and quoted.
“Running is bad for joints, muscles and the whole body!”
 His final comment was,
“I feel sorry for all you runners because running makes you old!” 
 What a horrible thing to read when I’ve been running for so many years!

You know, I didn’t believe this for one minute, but yes he was right…
Runner’s do get injuries and quite frequently.

Needless to say I felt a bit compelled and this prompted my curiosity to do some research to find out why runner’s  have so many injuries and if running really had the potential of being listed as an occupational hazard. 

What I found was running is actually better for your health than you think!
  • Running is excellent for your bones!
  • Running is excellent for your muscles!
  • Running is excellent for your cardiovascular system!
  • Running is excellent for your respiratory system!
  • Running is excellent, excellent for your everything!

And for the part that running makes you old…
Running actually regenerates all the cells in your body and can make you look and feel younger right down to your cellular level.

     That’s good news!
     The long and short of it, runner’s do suffer a lot of injuries.

    So what’s the problem then, why are all of us runners getting injuries?

    Here’s what I’ve discovered.
    When you age you lose strength and flexibility even if you’re active!

    Ah ha…It’s inevitable, it just happens because we become less active in a 24 hour period.
    Things that age and don’t get used, become brittle and break.

    Toddlers, they move in and around, strengthening and flexing their little muscles onto couches, floors and chairs and are great at developing their flexibility and strength!

    Yes, toddlers are building many muscles we don’t even know exist any more! The last time you crawled and climbed all around like a toddler was probably when you were a toddler.

    Running is a great exercise and builds some muscles, but not enough to keep you strong and prevent you from running into injuries.

    This is when I found Runner’s Yoga

    Doing  yoga will increase your flexibility, so your muscles and joints stay limber and flex better. Your body gradually aligns and strengthens so every running step is nice and strong.

    Yoga builds strength in your joints and muscle and this is a big plus.
    Those muscles that are not being used while you run are built during the Runner’s Yoga process.

    • The large and small  muscles support one another. 
    • This also spells out a faster metabolism…
    • More muscle means more fat burned…

    A lot of runners use Runner’s Yoga!

    Doing Yoga will ignite every part of your body that needs to be ignited, because you are giving your body the attention it needs, hence it will prevent running injuries!

    Runner’s Yoga is a Total Mind-Body Workout you can do on your own … almost anywhere … in just 30 minutes!  
    Your Running Program Needs a Yoga Program!
    It’s for anybody. 
    It’s for all levels of fitness and flexibility. If you are interested in giving your body a lift this program adds strength, agility and inner peace.
    I strongly recommend this program.

    Do You have control over life or does life have control over You?

    admin No Comments

    Think back…
    When was the last time you were really living with no stress?

    Do you remember that feeling of control?…

    Let me put a life scenario in your head…

    You are eight years old, kicking the dirt in front of you while walking to your best friend’s house.
    There is no rush because you know you’re going to get there.

    Maybe you are walking through a busy city, a field or a park and the only sounds you hear are the natural sounds.

    Life around you is still moving, there are cars zipping by, horns honking, maybe even sirens blaring.

    You are clued only to the sound of wind waffling past your ears or the subtle bird song that instantly lights up your heart. You might be listening to slight sounds, like the shuffling of grass or suddenly captivated by leaves swirling in the distance wind. Maybe it’s winter and you cherish the beautiful sounds of silence and for a moment shush background interruptions, as you capture the snow’s falling whisper.

    Along the way you are not feeling rushed…
    You glance at a squirrel from the corner of your eye as it sits and munches away peacefully on a nut. It’s tail is shaking in anticipation of life.
    Then you feel this sense of satisfaction as you stare as a bird busily creates a nest, flipping sticks and twigs in and around in anticipation of the life.


    You stop and watch in your own silence.

    Content…

    At this time… Does life have control over you or do you have control over life?

    This is your life…

    Remember that feeling…
    Such a true freedom…
     
    I wish I was 8 sometimes…
     

    Freedom…
    It is a state of being clear and unmixed, being able to watch life in anticipation while feeling free at the very moment.

    Stress is an impelling force of pressure. 
    The pressure of work, the pressure of an important event, worry, anxiety or fear.
    When you sit in stress all day long, day by day – you lose the benefits of feeling free!

    Freedom is a state of being clear and unmixed.
    When you Go back and remember that feeling of freedom, you are now dealing with the stress.

    You Feel Happier Kicking Back
    Don’t try to find freedom, gravitate towards Happy and Contentedness.
     You will have control…
    Freedom is with you now…You are not feeling rushed, but feeling like yourself.

    If you feel out of sorts.
    Stop…Remember the way you felt when you just kicked back…
    It’s a good feeling that is right there within you.


    So, go outside and walk or run don’t stress and let the  stress take care of itself . This is your tool to disintegrate all those negative feelings by leaving you clear to 
    move on to better things.

    Believe in Yourself

    Have you ever wondered what stopped you from believing in yourself, moving forward and getting the dreams that you’ve been dreaming about?

    Maybe getting into good shape was one of them!

    Sometimes I become frustrated with things in my life and I just sit thinking to myself of all the things I wish I had done then I’d feel more satisfied…

    • I wish I was skinny.
    • I wish I could run faster.
    • I wish I had a lot more money.

    Learn to Run – Believe in Yourself!

    I forget sometimes that I have the power within me to think positively and beleive in what I have to do to get myself to where I want to go in life…

    You’re maybe so conditioned of being in a state of, “hope or wish”‘ – you might sometimes forget that you truly need to believe in yourself and allow your situation to move through change so you implement action.

    To become a walker to a runner, you need to have a great plan. 

    Once you have a plan made, then you have to find a plan that is at your level. So if you are a new runner and want to be consistent, You have to follow learning stages to get you to successful. If you jump ahead, those stages are gone and your motivation is lost.

    “It’s not something that happens overnight, it happens by implementing steps. Nothing will change in your life unless you keep going by believing in yourself every step of the way!”

    What Keeps You Motivated? – Believe in Yourself

    • Believe in yourself.
    • Knowing that you have a good plan for exercise and diet. Learn to Run
    • Having a positive vision for looking better.

    • Keeping a journal or daily diary so you can monitor changes and keep track.

     

    Believe in Yourself

    A nice little motivational tool is to get a picture of yourself when you where fit or a picture of someone who you would love to be as fit as and put it at the front of your journal, the fridge or your closet. This will remind you to beleive in yourself and why you have the goal – you are seeking.

    Really, most of us run in the beginning not because we want to, but because we feel we need to. One day you will believe in yourself and run because you will truly want to.

    Believe in Yourself!

    Because… You have to start slow! 

    Running will be hard if you think you can run like a kid!

    If you start with this mind set, you’ll quit before you get to see the great results running has for YOU! 


    Why can’t I run like I used to?

    Your body at a cellular level needs to learn to run. This includes your lungs, bones, ligaments, heart and muscles. It all runs very deep!


    To get good at anything, you have to cut through the uncomfortable!

    This is the same in almost anything new in life. 

    Runners who haven’t run in a long time, have to pass a point of hard before magical moments start to happen and then your body starts to get used to running.

    The biggest problem is…

    Many of you quit running when you’re just about at the tip of getting good at it! 

    Because maybe…

    •  it’s  hard. 
    •  you’ve stopped following scheduled runs.
    •  you get an injury.
    •  you haven’t seen any improvements yet.

    ONCE your passed the point of no return…

    Running becomes something You never knew could be soooo wonderful!
    Then You start to see your very own successes …

    • weight-loss
    • more energy
    • happier
    • increased muscle tone all over
    • able to run longer distances
    • Loving yourself
    • running for the joy of running for the rest of your life!

      Those Magical Moments are just around that corner and you will run like you use to!

    Maybe you’ll even reach for goals you never thought attainable like…

    • 2 to 5K races!
    • half marathons!
    • full marathons!
    • ultra-marathons!
     If you are having a hard time getting into running, take a deep…deep…deep breath and let it out slowly and put a picture in your head of what you want to look like. Picture what you want for yourself… 
     When you feel like quitting and running gets hard – you’ll have that focused vision on your mind. 
    You won’t want to quit!

      6 weeks…
     That’s all it takes to get you going …

    After six weeks you’ll  be running for 20 to 30 minutes. 
    Comfortably…
    There will be some hard days, but nothing compared to the beginning.

    If you’re having problems with goals, get yourself started and start by going for a walk today…

    1. Go for a walk for an half hour.
    2.  Find a line of trees, a couple of telephone poles, driveways etc and run until you get past at least 2 of them.
    3.  Don’t run fast – just run so you are able to sing or chant a verse.
    4. The next day, walk that same path and do it again.

    How I ran a 5K

    admin No Comments

    I remember waaaay back running on my Cross Country Team and wondering to myself…

    How do I run a 5K, if I’ve never run one before?”
     I was literally plunked with a bunch of elite runners and told to run! (The run seemed to last forever!) It turned out to be about 5 kilometers!
    Meanwhile I had never even run a whole neighbourhood block, let alone a 5K.
    This experience felt overwhelming!


    I remember my first running steps…  Galloping people sprinting past me as I rushed breathlessly,through gnarly trails. My jaws were tensed, teeth grimaced as I carefully tried not to get trampled by other runners!
    This memory still haunts me at the start of a race and I have to stop myself from grinding 🙁
    The possibility of me finishing a 5K successfully seemed far and few between. This was a crippling first day. I finished feeling distraught, throwing up and not wanting to go back. EVER! Needless to say, something inside me said to keep going and I’ve been running for over 30 years.
    Quite happily I might add!
    I felt I was never going to be good at running a 5K without pain!
    I spent the better part of the entire first season suffering in a place where I felt I was never going to be good at running a 5K without pain!

     It was a bit demoralizing, because I was a sporty person and I felt I should be able to do this!
    Running a Comfortable 5K
    Conquering running comfortably and happily truly took a lot of thinking and research … 
    So… I meticulously set up my own program with the plan to achieve my 5K goal. I made a more sensible plan by making it a  gradual program, I figured this would make it a heck of a lot more gentler on me. At the time I hadn’t realized how great this would become. 
     I was quietly determined and was going to reach my goal! Little did I know the program set up, was the easy part. Learning to run comfortably had me to dig deep at times and believe… Nevertheless following my plan wasn’t hard and the best part was the challenge because It was FUN instead of self-defeating!
     I think back and realize how grateful I was to be able to go through this journey.
     Running longer than a 5K! 
    By the time I finished training for a 5K, I decided to do more and loved the longer distance training. One day I entered in a 10K race just for fun and followed another home-made plan. I surprised myself at how well I felt, I caught the bug for running…
    Running has become a staple in my life and I can’t imagine what my life would have been like, if I hadn’t found running.
     (What an excellent stress reliever!)
    My 50K Running Accomplishment!

    Recently I accomplished running 5 times the distance I did as a teenager. I first didn’t believe it was possible, but like the last time, I wouldn’t take “NO” for an answer.
     I ran those 50 kilometers with a vengeance, ALL in one day!
     On my 50th Birthday  I ran my 50K and completed it in 6 hours, 14 minutes and 18 seconds. 
    I surprised myself, finishing 45 minutes sooner than I thought and felt great!

    How did I run a 50K?
    I followed the same procedure that I followed back when I was in highschool. I knew my goal, all I needed was the map
    (the plan) to take me there. So I did it!

     

    The biggest mistake most people make in learning to run is running too fast, too much and too soon. These mistakes could have you never running again.


    All it takes to learn to run a 5K is patience, valuable directions and a great goal and you will become successful at running anything in life.


    Here are a few hints to get you started running a 5K.

    • Walk before you run for 10 minutes 
    • Run for 30 seconds. Go back to a walk for 2 to 3 minutes and repeat up to 30 minutes! That’s it for your 30 minute training run/walk!
    • Always walk 10 minutes after your session so your body can go back to normal.  Make sure you involve at least 10 minutes of stretches in the end to calm down tight muscles.
    • Think positively. Remind yourself you are new and give yourself a chance to do well! Running is hard in the beginning because your lungs, your heart, muscles and bones are not used to this kind of activity. The exciting thing is these are the parts of your body that will benefit and change your life.
    You can change your life for the better!
