In the past, I’ve used Yaktrax or another traction device that you strap onto the outside of your shoes to run safely in the snow and ice.  Some of the feedback I’ve gotten from the review and asking around is that putting sc...

A swim workout to benchmark your speed.
I did this swim workout 2 weeks ago, and I thought it might be worth sharing.  The general idea (especially the main set) is from Gale Bernhardt's Training Plans for Multisport Athletes.  The idea is a time trial test to dete...

I use my screw shoes all of the time lately. They work great on most surfaces. In fact, I just replaced a few worn down screws tonight in preparation for tomorrow's morning's slick run.

Although I would recommend placing the screws only around the outside edges of the sole, not nearer to the center as in this picture. You don't want to have the screw in the middle of your footfall or right under the ball of your foot.
