Barefoot Running Shoes on the News

Posted by Jackie on Aug 1, 2011 in Barefoot Running, Running in Vibram FiveFinger Bikilas

I find news anchors to be a touch annoying. They slam Vibram FiveFinger shoes (which they never actually call by name throughout the whole clip) just a touch, but at least in the end the anchorwoman doing the piece explains that with correct form you don’t need all the additional padding provided by traditional running shoes. Pretty funny that she calls them scary though!

Have you guys seen VFFs featured on your local news? ...

My Gym in the Dominican Republic

Posted by Jackie on Jul 14, 2011 in Jackie, Vibram FiveFinger at the Gym, Vibram FiveFinger Training

I thought I would show everyone around the gym that I work out in. It is in the same neighborhood where I live in the Dominican republic. I teach Spinning and Aerobics classes there.

I know it is small but it is close and the people who work out there are great!

Barefoot Running Video

Posted by Jackie on Jun 22, 2011 in Barefoot Motivation, Barefoot Runners

More and more people are taking to the barefoot running trend. I came across this video and thought I’d pass it along. Good, solid advice for the general public on taking it easy when training to run barefoot, or in barefoot running shoes such as Vibram FiveFingers. As an owner of the Vibram FiveFinger Bikila, I have to say I am not a fan of the Bikila LS, simply for the aesthetics. Perhaps the lace-up method is really helpful though? ...

Vibram FiveFingers Not for Spinning

Posted by Jackie on Jun 21, 2011 in Vibram FiveFinger at the Gym

Updated June 27, 2011: I added some pics from the gym so you can see what the spinning set up looks like.

Here in our island home I teach a spinning class at the little local gym, and although this week I am stuck at home with a twisted ankle (darn these Third World roads) last Bikes not for Vibram FiveFingerweek I decided to head to the gym in my Vibram FiveFinger. I brought along my tennis shoes, because I imagined that spinning wouldn’t work so well with Vibram feet, and I was right.

I spent the first part of my workout downstairs lifting, then headed ...

Negative Reviews of Vibram FiveFinger Bikilas

Over the last couple months I have been doing extensive research on Vibram Five Fingers for running, and VFFs in general and I have come across a lot of really positive reviews. I have a friend who swears by his KSOs and another who practically sleeps in his Treks. (Strange, I don’t have any female friends who have converted to Vibram FiveFingers yet.) However, I am the only person I know who has Bikilas, which I bought specifically for the purpose of finding a running shoe that contributed to proper form, lessening back and knee pain. So far, and mind you, it’s only been just over a week of running in Five Finger shoes and about a month of barefoot running, I am pleased with the results. I am a fan of Bikila FiveFingers for running, and I know I’m not alone.

However, recently I came across two reviews of Vibram Five Fingers that specifically focused on the ...

3 Vibram FiveFinger Runs and 1 Day at the Gym

My first run with my new Vibram FiveFinger Bikilas was a week ago today. The run felt good, although I was a bit concerned about the big toe on my right foot being hard pressed against the front of the toe pocket while I ran. I was, after all, running in a size 38, two sizes down from what the official “how to size Vibram FiveFingers” guide told me. Still, the shoe felt good, and by the end of the first run I was mostly convinced I was wearing the right size.

Fast forward two days later, I took my Bikilas back out for another spin at the park. This run felt really good. I felt light on my feet, only a little sore in my calves and there wasn’t a trace of the slight blister the run on Monday had left me with. I didn’t really notice anyone looking at my feet as I ran around the park at Centro Leon, a couple blocks away from my apartment, but then again I ...

I read up on the Vibram site how to size your FiveFinger shoes.

I even asked a friend who works at a minimalist running shop about sizing and he talked me through the whole process.

Vibram Channels a Barefoot Marathoner – Abebe Bikila

Posted by Jackie on May 23, 2011 in Barefoot Motivation, Barefoot Runners, Jackie

To be quite honest I hadn’t thought about looking up where Vibram came up with the name Bikila. So, when I got a gmail chat from a friend asking, “Have you seen this yet?” and including the Wikipedia link to Abebe Bikila I was pleasantly surprised. My new shoes are named for a two-time Olympic marathoner from Ethiopia, who just so happened to win his first Olympic marathon barefoot.barefoot bikila olympics 1960

Now my wife can stop faking when she talks about how great Vibram FiveFingers are!

Bikila Vibram FiveFingerI finally got around to scouring the internet for just the right place to buy from.
