Shoe Prints – from RunScribe Plus

FTC: Affiliate Disclosure: All links pay commissionReading Time: 2 minutes

I like RunScribe.

Anyone that tells me my efficiency is high, image above, must be nice 😉 I always try to take a compliment graciously.

There’s some more news to come from RunScribe from me later today (or tomorrow) but for now here is the latest addition to the insights you can get from RunScribe Plus.

This is available to those of you with Firmware 36.8 and above

 

The image is a little on the dark side but the new ‘Shoe Prints’ functionality is now live and you can see how some of the RunScribe Metrics are distributed over your footstrike. Mine are the ones shown above on a gentle and short recovery run this morning. If you look at some of the data from RunScribe at the New York Marathon 2018, below and here, it’s quite remarkable how different our impacts are.

Mine was surprising in that I expected more impact towards the right of my right foot (right metatarsal)…but, no.

The battle with tech like this is making it real, and being able to use the data to actually *help* rather than just have more noise to wade through. These prints are step change (sorry!) in being able to drive value out of runscribe. My shoes wear horribly on the outside edge, and my runscribe prints show this up with big nasty splodges of colour! I’m trying hard to strengthen my ankles and focus on flatter foot placement. There’s nothing else in the market that will allow me to track this on every run – unless I were to set up the gopro and live on the treadmill.
Great work from Runscribe (and interested to hear what else is coming!)

Yes, I can look at my soles… But that only shows a long term wear pattern and not run-by-run or allow quick comparison of shoes.
