SKORA Fit Running Shoe Review.

By |October 23rd, 2014

Shoe Name: SKORA Fit

Model: R01-003M02

Weight: 8.2 oz

Price: $94.95

Drop: 0mm

Website: http://skorarunning.com/fit-r01-003m02.html

Forefoot: Soft and stretchy forefoot. It does allow freedom and full extension of the toes despite a slight narrow appearance. It’s more of the style of the shoe with lateral laces that makes it look narrow. It is really roomy. I especially like the material of this shoe which is extremely flexible and is an asset to the forefoot.

Cushion: Not much […]

Can I still run with flat feet?

By |October 22nd, 2014

“I’ve been struggling with bad tendonitis in my leg because of my flat feet. I’ve had flat fee my whole life. You would know what I’m talking about.”
This was a comment made to me yesterday outside of the office by a friend of my wife. I hear this a lot and it’s extremely hard for me to restrain from making an attempt to straighten out their thinking in regards to flat feet and why […]

Rarely do we give our feet the attention we need to strengthen them.  Instead we tend to focus on replacing our shoes or adding an insert.  Here’s a great video from Runner’s World that reviews some great exercises to strengthen your feet and help resolve as well as prevent injuries.  Don’t rely on your shoes!!!

How often should you change your running shoes?

By |October 10th, 2014

Twenty years ago in 1994 when I was studying to become an athletic trainer the magic number for replacing a pair of running shoes was 300-500 miles. Four years later during medical school the information we were again being taught was that if runners were having any type of injuries or issues one of the first places we were to look were how many miles they had on their shoes. Anything in the range […]

    Gear to Help Runners Diagnose Form and Gait Could Change the industry?

Gear to Help Runners Diagnose Form and Gait Could Change the industry?

By |October 9th, 2014

What many fail realize is health care professionals really have no way of looking at data for runners and determine why some get one injury versus another and what are causing these injuries. Sure we can blame overpronation but does it truly lead to injury? And, if so, what types of injury? It’s easy for a runner to say “I get heel pain” or I suffer from shin splints” because I […]

How to increase your endurance and speed for a marathon.

By |October 6th, 2014

Here’s a good review of how to vary your runs to improve your endurance and in turn your speed as well. Many think that to improve your marathon times you need to train faster during your training runs. While this is true, the important concept that many fail to realize is that it’s the speed they need to gain, it’s the endurance. For example, if you can run a 9:00 minute mile now but […]

Easy Runs – Garbage miles?
Part of any good training plan is your base – the easy runs. The majority of the running you will do in a plan is often just recovery and easy runs. Is there a science to easy runs? Is there a right way or wrong way to run these easy runs? Are these just filler or ‘garbage miles’? This is a topic that has become more […]
