Once of the people I follow, MissZippy, is dealing with a recurrent painful injury that keeps her from doing the (really fast..elite level) racing she loves.
|ok, that's as good as I can do it!|
Today it seems she's embarking on a long "reset" of her running style and form using more minimalist shoe ideas. She's going to try to rebuild her muscles, bones, tendons (and neurons) to become a more resilient, stronger runner.
This is no small achievement. It will probably take her a full year to do it properly and they'll be no racing (or not much).
But what a boon for all of us! We get to share in the results this experiment and see what works and what doesn't.
So, in honor of her journey, I'm crossing my fingers AND MY TOES that it helps her get back "on track" enjoying the sport she loves!
