This series of podcasts is the chronology of the transition to barefoot running or natural form movement of a Sonya Carr who has taken a challenge from a marathon Madam to a 5K quickie her aim is learning The finer points of barefoot transitioning Learning natural form running or as it’s called barefoot running can take some time and can be as complex or easy as you make it. In the vernacular of the minimalist running movement, barefoot running has a different context to the actuality of running with no shoes. The transition from a shod runner to what I call a natural form movement needs to be done with a degree of mindfulness and body awareness.
Great conditions for the Mount Mee Marathon http://theruninn.com.au/page/5/Mt_Mee_Classic.html I am not targeting any distance over 10 this season so I opted for the 10k race still enough hills to make it fun and challenging. This audio has a fellow minimalist runner talk about his journey into barefoot running
I have had a bit of fun with trying out a quick podcast from my Iphone, sound quality not so great but passable. I have to admit it is a darn sight quicker doing it this way, the app just makes it very quick to get everything posted to the blog and Itunes As always great to hear your comments and thoughts. If you have any questions let me know Welcome to another episode of my podcast. Quick and sometimes not so quick opinions, observations,interviews, and tips around a barefoot, raw food athletic lifestyle.
Let me introduce Andrew and his website www.raw-food-health.net by way of an interview that Andrew graciously gave me recently from Asia, where he is now residing and enjoying all the good fruits and sunshine that a raw food lifestyle proponent could hope for.
The Ethical questions and practical considerations of being a vegan runnerI experimented with some audio on the run I do apologize there is a bit of wind noise and clicking sounds I could not get rid of. I have been very determined to get on top of all the challenges that learning how to get a Podcast up and running throws at you. It is not only the technical side of it but also the time commitment and dare I say Planning,that goes into getting an episode out. I have listen to heaps of other peoples shows and never thought on the mechanics of putting something together that is presentable as a finished product. I have done audio and video on my blog watzzupsport for years which I have now retired. but it is another kettle of fish as they say to get a work flow around a weekly or biweekly show. When I get more comfortable with the audio and other consideration I will be able to concentrate on the content. I speak in this episode about the ethical issues I found myself dealing with as a vegan and using animal hides and ointments of an animal source.
A Barefoot runner is seen to be an oddity amongst a sea of motion controlled expensive footwear. The reality is that we were born to run and to run without the technology to stop us from “injuring” ourselves. The need for shoes in a work place environment has obviously to be taken into consideration, but the need to strap our feet into the latest footwear from the Nike sweatshop factory to be able to go out for a run is very far from the truth. I have used an interview with a pioneer of the barefoot lifestyle Barefoot ted from the Advendure Edge Radio Podcast as he talks about the book BORN TO RUN by Christopher McDougall. It is a good read and sets out to show how we evolved to be efficient long distance runners.
Raw Food This is the second interview that I have done, and I recorded this ages ago, I do not know if I would be described as a masochist, or just plain stubborn, but there seems to be a lot of beating your head against a brick wall, getting to grips with the tools to deliver a podcast. Grant runs retreats were you can indulge your passion of Raw foods and Good company
