Today I ran approx. 5k in my “vibram fivefingers, sprint”. It felt great and especially after I started using the following pointers:
– Shorten the stride… a lot
– think relaxed running first – then speed
– Incorporate POSE drills during the run
I’ve done quite a bit of forefoot running and never quite got the hang of it before I started significantly shortening the stride, relaxing and using gravity as my friend, not my opponent 😉
To reax I use the methodology of Pavel Tsatsouline’s Fast N Loose concept. Very powerful stuff when you start to incorporate it in your training. Especially in endurance drills like running.
All the best
