“Proper Proprioception for your Preparation Prevents Piss Poor Performance”
It’s a sense of pleasure and pain, such an overwhelming amount of joy combined with a surge of fatigue. It’s awesome. Crossing the line and completing a marathon, without injury and with a smile on your face, should not be undervalued. It’s even better experienced than described!
Born to run
The good news is, it’s doable, nearly anyone can achieve it, and that’s because humans were born to run; we evolved that way. To do it without injury and to really enjoy it should be the ultimate goal.
The price for inadequate preparation should not be underestimated. It is the part of the marathon that is probably the most important. Being adequately prepared on the day will not only make it enjoyable it will also make it repeatable.

Hybrid – VIVOBAREFOOT golf shoe have featured on a MyGolfSpy.com list of 7 fixed-spiked casual golf shoes for 2013.
MyGolfSpy.com not only appreciated the fact that there is a great deal of science behind VIVOBAREFOOT footwear but they were also really impressed with the Hybrid performance.
This is what they have said about our ultimate barefoot golf shoe:
“This shoe is built on the foundation of Proprioception, which is the sensory feedback from the nerves of the feet. The sole is 2.5mm thick and is puncture resistant. It features a “zero-drop” heel and no pitch providing a natural gait. The toe box is wider than most allowing the toes to expand and function individually. The outsole is extremely flexible and can be folded in half with ease. The tread pattern or “spikes” are 2mm thick for incredible turf interaction. The asymmetrical upper is a combination of mesh and full-grain leather making them water-resistant.
Out of the box, these are ready to go and very comfortable for a minimalist shoe requiring little to no break in period.”
I’ve just received my Neos shoes and having worn them feel utterly compelled to contact you.
After a significant head injury put me in a coma for a few weeks I’ve been left with damage to my cerebellum, and the subsequent balance issues this brings.
Thanks to the help and experience of neurophysios and working with experts in yoga, pilates, feldenkrais, the alexander technique and power plates and twist conditioning I felt I’d made massive progress over the last 12years , leaving my wheelchair far behind.
We have a winner. Congratulations to Vanessa Holburn. Here’s her winning entry:
“Proprioception is the body’s ability to sense movement within joints and joint position. It enables us to know where our limbs are without having to look.”
