A few of us from Endurancefactor Events traveled to Memphis last week to help out at the St Jude Marathon Weekend. With over 21,000 registered runners and $15 million dollars raised for children's cancer research, the event is St Jude's largest single day fundraiser. An incredibly rewarding experience.

Ever wondered which running shoe is perfect for you? The answer lies not just in the brand or style, but in the type of your foot and its arch. Here's a quick guide from to help you step in the right direction.

1️⃣ Neutral Arch: If your wet footprint shows a nice curvature inside, you have a neutral arch. You'd generally do well with a flexible, neutral shoe. But remember, it's crucial to maintain good foot strength to prevent rolling in or out while running.

2️⃣ Low Arch: Are your footprints pancake flat? Then, you have a low arch. While you might face issues with plantar fascia or Achilles tendonitis, with the right strength, you can overpower these issues. A neutral shoe works well for low arches, too.

3️⃣ High Arch: A high arch often means a rigid foot, which can lead to reduced shock absorption. A shoe with more support or an insert can often help by bringing the ground up to your foot.

Regardless of your arch type, the key is understanding your body, prioritizing foot strength and flexibility, and choosing the right shoe accordingly.

Remember, you don't always need to resort to inserts or custom orthotics. Strength, flexibility, and the right footwear can help you run fast and injury-free! 🏃‍♂️

Training smarter, not harder, is key to hitting your race goals. Here's a guiding principle from our training partner, :

The 80% Rule.👇

The 80% Rule: For the majority of your runs, focus on keeping an easy base pace. That's right - 80% of your runs should be at a comfortable pace where you can maintain a conversation.

Remember, going too hard, too often can lead to overtraining and injuries.

The other 20%? That's where you can push - running at tempo or even race pace.

The beauty of this rule is its simplicity, but don't underestimate its effectiveness. It could be your path to a PR on race day, avoiding the common pitfall of overtraining while promoting longevity in the sport we love.

Swipe left to see an illustration of the 80% rule.👉🏼

Remember, running is a marathon, not a sprint - in training as well as on race day.
