Owie



So... I learned that when you run 3 miles barefoot, your feet are sore the next day. Not sore, like the skin hurts, not sore like injured, but sore like somebody put spacers between all the bones in your forefoot and is slowly cranking them apart. Like maybe all those muscles and tendons and ligaments in there had to really work to hold that foot together last night without the help of a shoe. Like maybe every time the foot stepped down it spread apart more than it does in the uber-expensive, cushy, supportive running shoes normally found on that foot.

I totally hear you! My barefoot running experiment this weekend was a mess!

Beyond the blisters, my calves were sore as if I had never ever used them before. It is like barefoot running is a completely different sport.

Take care of those dogs!

And why would you do something like that?

I do some weird stuff (endurance sports related, everything else I'm totaly normal ;)), but really... C'mon, please give a better explanation as to why you would be doing this to yourself.

Please!

Ouch! ... that sounds much worse than a little niggle :) ... I've never thought how stoopid that sounds till you mentioned it ... I've always used/heard the expression 'a niggling injury' ... maybe it's just a UK thing :)
