"It's a really polarized debate - there are what you might call the barefoot evangelicals on one side and the aggressive anti-barefoots on the other," says Ross Tucker, an expert in exercise physiology at South Africa's University of Cape Town and a middle- and long-distance running coach.

"Expectation is just as crucial," says Ross Tucker, Ph.D., an exercise physiologist at the University of Cape Town in South Africa.
Here's what he means: If you're in the midst of a PR attempt, you'll expect to be working hard, and your brain will interpret the physiological signals and effort perception as signs that you're on pace. As a result, your effort level may feel quite manageable. But if you're out for an easy run and your training partner goads you into finishing at race-day pace, then you're likely to feel crummy. That's because, Tucker says, "your expectations and physiological feedback are so mismatched." Now, instead of holding back in the middle of the race and picking up the pace toward the end, today's top runners run an even pace throughout the whole race, Tucker says, with the only variation coming in the last kilometer or so when racers drop a final kick.
