will prob run london minimalist was hoping barefoot but very wet weather and lots of salt on roads have made barefoot road work hard. so maybe vibrams more likely huaraches. i am a bit of an old bloke 51 so not sure how much help i can be. doing the brookes hanson route for first time. i can always finish 26 without effort but i am slow 3.30/340 pace so trying to speed up a bit, i am at week 8 of 18 week plan some injuries from speedwork i have been running full barefoot on track day. be great to help and if possible read what you find out, i went barefoot/ minimal about 4 years ago due to bad knees. started with chi running ect
Hi I have run a good few marathons and a few ultras always in trainers but changed over to vibrams in spring. I bit early to risk london but i have built up mileage slowly over last 6 months. now up to 4 hour fell runs
I use KSO treks knee probs much less but occasional pain in ball of foot usually if i hit a big stone on decent. my advice start steady mix grass and trails into training especially early days. watch for calf pain in first 6 weeks. Walk in them shop in them anything to get feet to adapt.
Last bit of advice read Chi running and Born to run both books readily available.
