Barefoot Running

Sunday, May 13, 2012

I've started running in vibram's fivefinger shoes. Very different feel. Unfortunately, I had to switch back to my Asics this morning... probably should have just stuck with the Vibrams. Oh well. I got the workout in. That's all that matters.

I have mentioned that I have a race in mind in a past blog, I believe. Well, I wrote out my schedule from the beginner program I found and am trying to adhere to it. Tomorrow is supposed to be a "twofer", but I have to go to the office and potentially stay late. I am going to get up and bike in the morning, but I may not have time to make it to the pool in the evening. I guess I could stop at the college on the way home and see if their pool is open. Its a fairly short swim workout so I should be able to squeeze it in.

    VFFs never fit me. But for the last 2 years I've been wearing Invisible Shoes (www.invisibleshoe.com) which are way more barefooty than the VFFs anyway. Definitely took me a bit of time to relearn how to move without slamming my heels in the ground or reaching out too far with my feet when I landed.

    But I'm thrilled that I took the time. I haven't had a running injury since I switched. And I used to have them all the time.

    I'm not a runner, but love my Fivefingers. It probably took me a good month to "relearn" how to walk!
