Raw Food Bare Foot Mindfulness 

It has been a very busy week or so in the realm of all things Raw and Bare foot. Sonya’s transition to a natural form movement running is going well and she shares her experiences on this weeks show.

I have been having a few technical difficulties getting the show into Itunes  for some reason, it used to be an automatic process but it seems to have gone of the rails somewhere at the time of publishing this post, so I hope you are able to listen by streaming or downloading from the website player.

The Raw Food Bare Foot Adventure weekend clinic is announced and the variations of delightful dishes to present are getting larger so I have been having to taste test many treats….such a hard life 🙂

I try not to make the information sound like raw food, or going  bare foot is the critical path to life’s success, though I totally believe nutrition based on an unprocessed plant based regime, with energetic connections to the earth and a life conducted with mindfulness training is a most wonderful platform to life from.

 

 

Newbies Barefoot Transition Part Three

Sonya continues her Newbies barefoot transition to natural form running, increasing in confidence, form and performance.

The decision to change from a shod runner to a barefoot natural form running is a challenge if you are used to getting your runners high from lots of distance under the feet.

To embrace a safe  Newbies barefoot transition you have to cut back on the distance and focus on form listening to your body tell you when to go longer and harder. All elements of barefoot running are healthy and are not  fad induced concepts.

Whenever your body has adapted to something, it will have the patterns set out like a computer program, this includes incorrect adaptations.

When you take of your shoes as part of a newbies barefoot transition you have to relearn the natural form running skill you have taught your body to ignore by running in shoes that have cushioned heels and do not allow for natural movement.

 

 

Newbies Barefoot Introduction

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.

Listening to the body and what its demands are, give you the best return on a training advice. If your feet are too sore to run then don’t run simple as that. Consistency and simple demands on your body will return you a better result then you not listening to what your body is telling you and you overdoing everything.

Being a barefoot runner can be seen as an un-normal way of doing things, but what if you are barefoot runner and a raw food enthusiast at the same time.

Perhaps that means you are away out left barefoot hippie, but what if a trained journalists with a penchant for getting to the facts and figures hails this way of life and lives it would that give it any more credibility.it’sRaw food

The Ethical questions and practical considerations of being a vegan runner

I 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.

Barefoot Ted Born to Run

Play

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.
