I do a fair bit of walking – more now on this journey than ever. Walking is a great low impact, low heart rate activity that can form the bulk of your exercise. Unless you have sore feet – or a sore back.
A few days ago I discovered Katy Bowman : “a master’s level Biomechanist and the only human physics scientist that has focused her expertise to address our country’s epidemic-level health crisis and the mechanical causes of disease” [from her bio.]
Right now I’m reading How flip-flops change your feet which refers to a great article by Nicholas A Campitelli on What Happens To Our Feet When We Wear Running Shoes.
For now I’m just going to leave this here as a breadcrumb – if you’re starting to look into biomechanics, Katy sounds like a great resource to mine!
P.S. I’m starting a new ‘research’ category on the blog – this will become a history of links to interesting information I’m reading while looking for ways to put another hole in my belt.
