I'll try to cross post from my fellrnr page on occasion, but if you want to keep up with me, you'll need to add fellrnr to your circles. (Sorry about this change.)
 
The Asics 33-DFA promises to support a more natural running form, something I applaud. However, while the result is far better than most running shoes, it’s too heavy to compete with the best. My review of the Asics 33-DFA rates it as “worth considering”. I compare it to the Asics Hyper Speed, Hoka Clifton, Saucony Kinvara, and the Asics GT 2000. http://buff.ly/1MgPlf6

The BSX Lactate Threshold sensor is an awesome idea, but does it work? I have serious doubts, but I've given you enough information to decide for yourself. What do you think? http://fellrnr.com/wiki/BSX

that BSX thing really sounds like a scam...

Does anyone have recommendations for videos to watch on the treadmill? I recently watched "Samsara" while listening to music and it worked well. The visual images gave me something to watch as I struggled to keep up. The images are a mixture of beautiful and disturbing, and I'd be interested to find other options. It seems like there are more cycling videos than running, though sufferfest as some for interval training. http://www.thesufferfest.com/training-videos/running-training-videos/ What works for you?

Can the Saucony Endorphin displace the NB RC5000 as the fastest running shoe? http://fellrnr.com/wiki/Saucony_Endorphin (I also compare it with the Wave Universe, Asics Hyper Speed, and the Asics GT 2000)

Here's the result of the latest Ambit2 accuracy testing, and you can see Suunto have done a good job. I'll publish my Ambit3 results soon, and that's even better, coming close to the Polar V800. http://fellrnr.com/wiki/Suunto_Ambit2

I've been advocating longer long runs for a while, but it's heresy in many circles. http://buff.ly/1O739ZZ http://buff.ly/1O737Br
More distance runners are choosing to run multiple 26.2-mile races close together to improve their times

Am I missing any ultra training plans or books? (I'm reviewing "Training for Ultra Running" at the moment.)

I've changed my shoe rating scale. I was doing a complex formula based on the characteristics of the shoe, but it wasn't working, so I've gone back to a simpler recommendation text. http://fellrnr.com/wiki/Shoes

I've written up my notes on Lactate Threshold & NIRS, which is the technology behind the BSX and Moxy sensors. It's rather more than most people will need, but I'd like you to know the basis on which I'm evaluating these products. http://fellrnr.com/wiki/Lactate_Threshold#Lactate_Threshold_And_Near_Infrared_Spectroscopy

Was there anything in your research that pointed out why slow twitch fibers remove more lactate? And why LSD runs improve lactate clearing? On a side note, assuming you are downloading full papers, how do you get access to articles i.e. Elsevier without paying $35 for each article? Unless only looking at the abstracts.

Interesting results of the WSER survey. I expected Hoka and Altra to be top shoes, but I'm surprised by Brooks. Anyone know what models are popular at WSER? http://www.wser.org/2015/09/03/2015-runner-survey-results/ (I found this via the http://ultrarunnerpodcast.com/ultramarathon-daily-news-fri-sep-4/ )
