Today was my first go at a bit of barefoot running.
Cue a picture…which has been edited to ensure no-one gets freaked out by the whole toe thing…
Having taken onboard advice that suggests it is best to start off slow, I headed to the trails of Bourne Wood for a gentle bit of running/walking for half hour. Did 2 min run followed by 2 min walk for 2 miles.
Running in the Fivefingers was definitely different. Felt really good. It makes you lean forward more, land lighter and have a quicker cadence.
Managed to complete the run without any aches or injuries.
So far so good.
