Reflections on barefoot-style running, healthy diets, and moving in the right direction.
What do you do when your heels don't touch? I.e. what are the proper steps to work towards the final position?
I also couldn't get my heels to touch either at first. You can do standard achilles stretches, which will help. You can also hold on to something (like a post) and relax into the squat. This will help you stretch out all the appropriate bits in the right way. Just take it slowly, obviously.This stretch has been a huge help for my tight IT band.Barefoot Ted recommends this as being a key natural movement, which makes perfect sense.
