I just tried to watch it but the video has been removed.  Maybe the poster had an epiphany, or they just got tired of all the negative comments.

?? - the first vid worked for me just now.  Maybe you should try again as learning to heel strike properly is not something you should miss...  Wink Wink  Grin

I found another bit of bad advice on YouTube today. Some of the things this guy says are just unbelievable.

Vibrams 5 fingers VFF + barefoot running vs proper running shoes. Durianriders experience. #190




I was referring to this one as the link that did not work or has been removed.

Be glad it did not work for you. It is very bad. Luckily not too many people have watched it so the damage may be minimal.

Thats working too - but its more an advert for Brooks - I think he may be sponsored by them.  According to the Aussie wisdom (now theres 2 words you dont see together very often  Wink ) its not possible to run fast in Vibrams, but it is in Brooks....

I continually get "The video is currently unavailable".  Oh well.  From what it sounds like, I am not missing much.

Her advice would be terrible for barefoot or minimalist running but how about in a traditional shoe? I thought traditional shoes have a raised heel and thick padded sole to encourage heel to toe? Was she talking about barefoot running or traditional here?

Some sort of plug in was missing.  I got it working now.  I am starting to watch it.  I have one questions, int he beginning when he is holding up the Vibram, is that birdshit on it?
