  1. wow....lots of technical info from uncle.....how about conducting a small met up and help us to check if we run correctly been running....minimalist, noticed cadence went up thus heart rate goes up too and speed too, but don't feel tired....not sure if good thing.
  2. thanks trailblazar for the videos, seems like i am in the right 'track' after watching those videos. nightknight1976 - agree with you, initially when started running with minimalist shoes, calf were sore. now changing to forefoot strike(according to the first video)with minimalist shoes i have less backache now....maybe because of my tradition heel-strike running for the last 20years
  3. its a bit like tip-toe running.....with body leaning slightly forward.....not that forward .....but enough for u to have your feet land automaticaly to breakfall and same time propel forward (having no contact of the heel)...right?
  4. ya....u won't know if u running correctly.....uncle so technical.....got video show show or not.....sometime i wish i can carry full length mirror to run so i can see if my hip is at the 'right' position...LOL
  5. i have read about chi-running, Pose or Forward running, and now have been using minimalist shoes to change my running method to a foreward running style. have been doing this for last 3 years and found that this help me to increase my cadence thus speed. Anyone has experience benefits in any of this running method after changing from 'heel' running?
  6. i can start one (want to score pts...LOL)...... like to see how many has started changing the way they run and whether there is any benefits to transit from heel to "forward running"
  7. wow..uncle..same same, i wear mininalist (cannot sell brand here ^_^) for short runs (<5km), so can 'rotate use' of different musle group. i recommend this to friends, so u don't over stress the same sets of muscles....now we taking of Qi running and forward running? do we have topic on this?
  8. ya, i think Boston marathon banned earphones. that is good, in a way. i now starting train without music. Well, Singapore to reach world class standard still a bit long way to go. look at ECP run, people are still cycling ....against runner direction...i missed Mobile Marathon, u actully get to see Singapore....not those 'picture-scenery' route.
  9. Yes, 101% agree, obey your body, so u enjoy more runs. know ur body and push the limit gradually, be prepared and u will know u are ready once u r ready, u will know u are stronger after each race.
  10. seems like i need to plan for electrolytes intake for long runs....ya and more long runs i will need to know how much i need to take..thanks kohpapa and AutumnRunner for your sharing.
  11. i totally agree with this. have pick up points for those failed cut-off time, then send them back, that is if we want to have a world marathon standard. i remember doing my first Mobile Marathon in the 1990s, there were buses to ferry those who cannot finish the full marathon.
  12. thanks kohpapa and AutumnRunner for the info. ya, i think different people sweat at different rate. there are reports that says, 'drink when thirsty' and there are recommendation 'drink even u are not' ...... may i know your personal experiences, in Singapore weather, which do u practice? Btw, i can go without water for 21km and got no cramp and nausea and not feeling thirsty (running @6:30min/km). should i try go even further without water until i get thirsty?
  13. need advice. How do i know if i am over-hydrate or dehydrate. I did some reading, both share same symptoms. every year i run the marathon, i will definitely feel nausea at 34km. i tried breathing hard hoping i will burp to ease the nausea feeling, but didn't work much. Anyone can advice me? thanks in advance. Btw, for training, my longest run is also around that distance.
