A good day getting back into my planned exercise:
30 sec plank
30 mins continuous barefoot walk/run, including at least 5 mins of running
(starting my time over like this because of my absence of training for the past week)
HUGE difference between actual barefoot running on grass (what I had been doing) and running on pavement, even in the Five Fingers shoes. 20 minutes of walking or running is about all my body can stand, without a short break.
Starting to get a little nervous about my progress toward the 5k on March 17, so I’m going to find a neighborhood route of that distance, and also a trail run of the same. in addition to my training in bare feet and Five Fingers, I’ll get more mileage and more conditioning in with regular shoes, while still practicing the barefoot technique (180 bpm, short stride, landing on forefoot rather than heel, landing with feet under my center of gravity, using glutes and calves more than quads for propulsion, etc).
RFA phone meeting – was basically good to hear other people going through the same things as me.
