CUSHIONING REGAINING INTEREST IN RUNNING SHOES Gene Ulishney, BS HPE, LMT, CPed, BOCPed

Minimalism, in its purest form, has begun its inevitable decline. Once touted as the be-all and end-all to all running pain, minimalism has landed on hard times. Yes, pun intended. Hard hurts, and there is only so much hurt that even the most zealous seeker of the truth will accept. Less of a shoe can cut down on numerous levers that may plague more conventional shoes. Or, should I say, those running in those shoes. Simpler is the easy way to allow the body to function from a more biomechanically sound position. In particular, flatter shoes seem to help low back and knee pain. But the lack of cushioning caused its own set of problems in runners. So did lowering the heel too much. What began showing up more and more were metatarsal fractures, general foot pain due to added stress on tendons and ligaments, fat pad deterioration as well as Achilles and calf pain. To this point, I met a woman who was complaining of fairly intense, general foot pain. She wore a non-cushioned shoe for three months and decided to go back to a more cushioned shoe. To make a long story short, and much to her great dismay, her foot structure broke down so much that her new shoe size was now 3 sizes larger and a width wider. Minimal shoes were supposed to be more natural but it seemed everyone forgot that sidewalks and roads are not. If you prefer a light-weight shoe with more “feel” try the Brooks Pure line of shoes. You will probably find one that suits both your stability level and foot shape needs and enough cushioning to protect those delicate foot structures. So now, where do the15% of runners go, who must have the latest and greatest? Well, we know that comfort always sells; soft sells; and new sells. It didn’t take long for someone to come up with what seems to be the ultimate cushioned shoe. Hoka began showing up in some running stores in recent weeks. Big, fat and spongy, it looks like it will add about three inches to your height. Talk about the opposite spectrum to minimalism! It is garnishing a lot of attention, so we will soon see where it goes. Although more conventional, Brooks will be offering a new shoe next February which will be the most cushioned in the line, the Transcend. Selling for $160, it is advertised to offer adaptable and customized cushioning for your own individual weight and gait while allowing you to run the way YOU run. Along with a multitude of new tech features, the shoe includes “guide rails” which only come into play when they sense your foot veering off-course. It will be interesting to see just how many different runners this shoe will accommodate. For those who continue to wear mainstream running shoes, you are in the majority. Find a good one and stick with it as long as nothing hurts. But it is nice to experiment with something new once in a while. If you do, just use common sense. Maybe the next “new technology” will really revolutionize the running industry. Odds are against it, though. Happily, it seems that we will always have “normal” shoes to fall back on. Yes, comfort and cushion are back, but shoes are only the beginning. If you want the ultimate in comfort consider some nicely padded Thorlo socks and a well-cushioned Spenco orthotic. Thorlos help keep your natural fat pads from breaking down and act to replace them when they have. General foot pain can often be caused by inflamed nerves in the bottom of the feet which can easily be helped with more cushioning and generously padded socks. Cushioned orthotics spread your body weight over a larger 3-dimensional surface area to eliminate pointpressures on the bottoms of the feet. The combination of both padded socks and cushioned orthotics help align your body structures and reduce shock and wear and tear in the cartilage and cushioning structures of your joints, especially the knees and back. Always ask your salesperson if he or she can recommend anything that may help you feel better or more comfortable and improve your running experience. Take your time and try different products. You probably don’t know what you are missing. flraceplace.com

Establishing Lifetime Fitness     The journey to fitness brings about two big challenges; that of making it fit into your busy lifestyle  and then making that fitness time part of your daily routine.    Here is what I have found to be true  among those who I train:  *   Find a mentor or professional trainer to teach you all about the sport; be it biking, running, etc.   Learning the right way to implement the sport helps success and reduces chances for injuries.  * Make out a schedule of your daily life activities Monday through Sunday; and see which days you can  plug in your sport(s).  A recommendation is the morning since there are fewer variables to prevent you  in engaging; late in the day can bring on rain, tiredness from work, family demands, etc.  * Make a fitness appointment.  Yes, treat physical fitness as you would a doctor’s appointment.  Until  wellness becomes a habit; you may have to rely on pure discipline.  When I began running I simply made  it a rule to run 1 mile each day no matter what.  Now 94 marathons later I have to say running is part of  my routine!  * Seek camaraderie; there are countless running clubs, group walks, biking organizations, swimming  classes, yoga groups, etc.  Make your new sport social and gain accountability at the same time.   Making  friends leads to them expecting you to join them.  * At first aim for establishing a routine versus performance.  Getting your fitness routine will lead to  better performance due to complying  with the key training principles of both frequency and duration.  * Share fitness goals with your family, friends, loved ones, etc.  They will need to be part of your  “support team”.  Those mornings when you do not want to engage will be a key time for your family  members to “help you out the door”.    Your turn.  Try out new fitness adventures and develop a positive relationship with exercise.  Reflect on  five years from now and think where you want to be physically.  Find your physical routine, and  experience increased wellness throughout your years.

TAMPA BAY RACE COUNCIL                                      

written by Lynn Gray 

Dear Race Directors, Organizers and Participants,

The Tampa Bay Race Council is now underway and we would like to share our goals as it relates to the race event community.  

* To promote camaraderie, professionalism, and unity among new and existing race directors with the emphasis on helping each other market their race; with the inclusion of assisting with volunteerism whenever possible * To implement a code of ethics among existing and new race directors as it relates to their implementation of road racing and/or other road/triathlon/adventure events  * To establish a unified yearly calendar to foster non-duplication of race events as much as possible  * To provide programs and services aimed at educating new race directors, such that their event goal is done with the highest amount of success  We are now making headway and have a Board of Directors, written By Laws, and an interactive race calendar. Thus far this month:  * The council has decided on putting our logo on all races, which have our complete backing resulting from ethical and professional practices  * The council welcomes race directors to join us on Facebook and profit by gaining more race direction knowledge and increase participant sign-up from increased cross marketing  * The council is forming an ongoing all inclusive race calendar (online), in hopes of minimizing duplication of events; this will assist participants in the planning of their events in advance  * Council meetings will be held monthly alternating between the locations of St. Petersburg and Tampa; this way both sides of the bay are accommodated with the drive.  If you are currently a race director or are about ready to become one, be it a road race or a triathlon, feel free to contact me.   Sincerely,  Lynn Gray  President    Tampa Bay Race Council  

For information, contact Lynn Gray at Lgray88@yahoo.com or call (813) 453‐7885.    September/October 59
