I've read both ironholgs books and I also read his blog. I'm a bit disappointed in the way people slag someone off for 1 writing two great,funny,touching and all inspirational books .
2 for bringing triathlon down to the normal bloke like me who needed picking up after a shit time in my life .
Mr holgate you can hold your head high .
I you measure his profit by inspiration he is a wealthy man. Thanks for writings for the fun of it and forget the empty heads who have never met you .
Bare foot running ! I use merrell trail glove and after 20 yr of shin splints they have gone . Before these I had tried all the foot scan , insole, tape , support trainers none worked. Take your time with barefoot shoes. You could also try race flats . Also go on YouTube and there is plenty of hood videos on how to run . The BBC do a show last year and found that there is no evidence that support trainers help .
