Happy Thursday! It's dark and looking like we are going to get blasted with rain here!
Here is my weigh in!
So I'm trying barefoot running and so far it's been painful. Painful on my feet. You can break in shoes, but you can't break in new feet. Let's be real!!
The pavement was totally different than what I'm used too and the recovery time is way different.
I've been getting some flack on Facebook about it from my relatives because they cannot grasp the concept of this kind of running, but honestly I want better form.
I'm run heel to toe instead of landing on the ball of your feet, like you're supposed to do. This running style is so slow and it will probably drive me crazy, but I'm not training for anything and long term, I will progress into minamilst shoes. I just need to slowly retrain everything, that's time consuming and requires a lot of patience on my end. However, this will benefit my body, reduce injury and maybe cure PF! I've heard that when everything else fails, people go to this style if running!!
Q: What in your running career or in life has caused you a great deal of patience for a long term benefit?
