We recently had Dr. Kevin Kirby, DPM on our podcast (episode 47) to discuss all things running!
Biomechanics, foot strike patterns, running shoe design and use, barefoot running, and much more are topics we covered. If you missed that podcast you definitely want to check it out. Go here.
Dr. Kirby gave a new lecture on July 30th 2014 entitled: "Running Footstrike: Rearfoot, Midfoot or Forefoot, Which is Best?"
One of our passions here at Pursuit Athletic Performance is dispelling training MYTHS, especially those that are hurtful to those who don't know any better. For example, one of our most read blog posts from the past was one we did on the MYTHS associated with "gait analysis," especially the kind you'll get in a running shoe store (hint: it isn't gait analysis at all!). Didn't read that one? You can find it here.
We also believe it is important to highlight science-based information from true experts when it becomes available. This very recent lecture by Dr. Kirby helps us achieve both.

Thank you Dr. Kirby.
Make it a great day everyone!
