Dicharry is an expert in the field of movement and biomechanical analysis and has helped thousands of triathletes overcome injury. He gives some great insights into how to stay injury-free, perhaps the most important of all being learning how to move well and building a body that is strong and robust enough to withstand the many hundreds of miles you want to swim, bike, and run.

Running Rewired, by Jay Dicharry

Read more

Jay Dicharry’s book explains how to reinvent your running for better stability, speed and strength. 

Alan and Liz take you through it in detail covering each of the books 3 parts:

1. The rationale; what is going on with the runner’s body.

2. How to drive your run in a customised fashion with targeted precision and performance exercises.

3. How to rewire your running brain with workouts to reinforce the new behaviours.

Training harder might just be reinforcing poor running patterns. Stop forcing “plan B”, and switch to your “plan A”. Jay uses a step by step approach to tells us how to do this, and why it is important. 

There are clear explanations of what is going on inside your mind and body, demystifying some of the more common scientific jargon we hear around running.

Discover how to find out what YOUR body needs to do to be a better runner, and then convince your brain to send it a revised set of instructions! Sounds magical? Well it’s going to take some work.

Jay shows us each drill and exercise in sumptuous illustrated form, before assembling them into a menu of routines. Each person can then select routines from the menu based on needs, skill level, and where they are in their training plan. 

Liz offers her advanced experience with the programs in the book, and Alan contributes his beginner experience trying to get his glutes to show up for a run! 

As usual the team give the book a thorough and enthusiastic examination. Is it the book for you? You will certainly know by the end.

Jay Dicharry: Small Workouts, Big Changes -R4R 170

Read more

Nothing matters more to a runner than their feet. It’s one of the few things that we feel comfortable with spending decent money on. We know that shoes are about the only thing you need to get into running, so over the years, getting the best shoes for our feet is what we have focused on.

The right pair of shoes can make a big difference in how you feel about running. Can you imagine trying to run in a pair of firefighter boots? Or what if every time you laced-up, you put on a couple of two-foot long snorkeling fins. Running definitely wouldn’t be as enjoyable.

For a decade or two, minimal footwear, or even running barefoot has gained popularity. Perhaps you’ve considered it, or even given it a try. For the majority of runners though, it’s mostly an experiment.

While it isn’t very reasonable for the most of us to run barefoot, whether it’s the terrain where we live or the way we feel about it, the barefoot movement has made some big differences in how our shoes look today and how experts research the foot.

Jay Dicharry is one of those experts. He is a physical therapist and a sports clinical specialist. He has written two books on running and helps several types of athletes recover and increase their performance. Jay’s goal is to help people achieve their goals by working backwards from those goals, finding the weak points, and strengthening them.

The Connected Human Body

Most recently, Jay has focused on feet. He’s found, that just as runner’s now want to strengthen their hips and core, they should also strengthen their feet.

If you don’t know already, the reason behind strengthen our hips and core is to avoid injury and perform better as a runner. It may not be intuitive at first, but strengthen these areas of our body help to keep better posture, longer. As the children’s song “Dem Bones” suggests—cue the music—the knee bone’s connected to the thigh bone, the thigh bone’s connected to the hip bone...and so on.

With proper posture, we don’t put too much pressure on the wrong parts of our body. As we fatigue, those muscles that we have trained, lose their form. So even if your legs are strong and still moving, your weak hips and core could, for example, lead to unnecessary strain on your knees.

Focusing on a Runner’s Feet

Similarly, our feet can use some strengthening. For a number of years, shoe companies and professionals really wanted to tell you that you have a certain type of foot, one that needs a higher or lower arch support, or a wide or narrow shoe.

Jay says that our feet both pronate and supinate, something that used to be classified as a “type” of foot. “Feet need to move,” he says, “they aren’t like a static bridge.” Instead of trying to find the right type of shoe for your foot, he suggests wearing multiple types of shoes throughout the week so our feet get used to different environments.

The bottom line is that if we have stronger feet, we can run faster, jump higher, and cut harder. The focus should be on freeing our feet and strengthening them, rather than confining them and creating an inflexible and insensible foot.

How to Strength Your Feet

The process of strengthen your feet is similar to most healthy habits. You don’t need to do it a lot, and it’s most effective when done consistently over a long period of time. For children and those that train without shoes, feet are still flexible and using them without shoes or with minimal shoe constriction keeps them that way.

For most of us, we can strengthen our feet by doing simple exercises. Practicing balance and doing other exercises barefoot can help, as well as using some of Jay’s feet strengthening tools. A good way to incorporate foot strengthen exercises is to add them at the beginning or end of a run and to not consider the run complete until you have finished them.

Training correctly for a short amount of time is often more effective then training incorrectly for a long period of time. Think about that when considering adding a foot strengthen exercise to your routine. Whatever we can do to train better, we should happily embrace it.

The challenge is in deciding how best to spend our time training. How will you train smarter this year?
