Baby steps

Freshly armed with my new aqua shoes that I am using to "train" my feet for barefoot running I was tasked my the Demanding Mrs to go to the local cinema to but some tickets for the new James Bond movie, Skyfall. Ironically it felt as though the sky was falling as it tipped the contents of the English Channel across my home town. The cinema was 0.5 miles from where the car was parked.....time to run.

Being very mindful it was wet, it was pavement and my shoes were not exactly the toughest ones I ran being very aware how my feet landed. Wow, I was quite amazed as I found that I had to do very little to change my gait although I was aware of some knocking of the heel which I soon adapted and focussed my strike to not just the ball of the foot.

So there we have it, my first mile as a barefoot runner!
