Hi Everyone,

I've been a VFF user since I was 17--and I'm now 20. I love them, and they completely changed my life. I run every day, and I haven't really had a break in over a year. But I've been running (pun intended) into some issues lately that I need help with. I have really bad lower back pain, and I'm not sure if this is a result from the VFF's and too much running or something else. I know that they are supposed to help with back pain, but has anyone heard about them causing back pain?

I'll post in the general discussion forum too!

Thank you!

The only time I get back pain running in VFF's is when I lean forward, even just looking at the ground instead of at the horizon is enough to create a tiny lean that overloads my back muscles.

Don't worry. It's not worth following. It's an astroturf blog for a Chinese shoe vendor, with a little howlingly awfully translated "editorial".

For example its tips for cleaning suede include the hilarious:
Quote
The initial step in maintaining your suede searching amazing would be to protect this! The smartest thing that you can do for your own suede or even nubuck items would be to spray a few weather protestant onto it.


I'll be hanging around my local non-conformist chapel in the rain just to see if I can get a good supply of "weather protestants".  Cheesy

We also do sarcasm and irony in Britain. In fact, much of our humour is based on it. It's rare to see someone from the other side of the pond do it right though. Hence the need to use a /sarc tag every now and then.

Have a nice day!

@nowster

Lyonel is from the Netherlands, not the US.  Sarcasm is widely used in the US as well, at least it is by me.  I am trying to help sarcasm make a comeback, LOL.  The problem with sarcasm, when it applies to forum posts or written word in general, is it is not always immediately or even easily detected.  When I first read Lyonel's post, I did not necessarily detect it as sarcasm, which you obviously did not either.  Based on some of Lyonel's comments in other thread posts, I did eventually draw that conclusion, even before he reiterated it with the definition post later on.

My apologies to Lyonel for wrongly assuming where he was from. Indeed it's useful to mark subtle humour in some manner as, when written in text on a screen, it can easily be misinterpreted.
