natural running from the tri centre...
OPTIMAL RUNNING FORM
Run barefoot to discover your optimal running form. You'll discover immediately that when you run barefoot, you're not landing on your heels. Instead you are landing on your midfoot/ forefoot.
Landing on your midfoot/ forefoot is the most natural way to run. It is also the fastest and most efficient way to run. Newton Running shoes are the only shoes that were developed specifically for Natural Running.
INOV-8 OFF ROAD
TAKE YOUR SHOES OFF AND GO FOR A RUN...
Immediately you'll notice your running style changes. You'll land more on the forefoot and less on the heel. Running barefoot (or naturally) is associated with fewer acute and chronic injuries to the ankle and lower limbs.
WE ARE NOT SUGGESTING YOU RUN BAREFOOT THOUGH...
Rocks, scree, stones, mud, grass, bush, thorns. Asphalt, tarmac, concrete, stone... Each inov-8™ shoe protects the foot, providing the wearer with a secure and intimate fit that's almost like running barefoot.
CHANGE YOUR RUNNING STYLE...
If you are not ready to take the full leap into natural running style then you should try this fantastic show from Scott Sports.
The T2C has a traditionally cushioned heel but with a lower than normal profile in an extremely light weight package.
These allow you to begin to make the transition from heel striking to midfoot/ forefoot in comfort.
SILVA - GET OUTDOORS
RUN IN A NATURAL ENVIRONMENT...
Edinburgh is built on 7 hills and we are surrounded by useable countryside.
A fantastic night run in the Pentland Hills or
over Arthur's Seat after work is the perfect way
to use and abuse your natural running shoes.
Accompanied by a SILVA headtorch you can keep this up through all the dark months.
