    After an absence of quite a while now I'm back again.
    The long time knee issue has settled down now, it started by and accident then became a biomechanical issue that took a long time to fix.
    I went on a barefoot run with fellow barefooter David who has been running with me on a monthly basis for around 9 years now.
    We did a short 6km run around a lake yesterday and were lucky to get some glorious winter sun.
    It is a bit harder to get runs in during the week as a long commute to and from work means I get back just as the sun is setting and darkness and cold is creeping in. I spend the week at the gym doing core strength exercises, deadlifts, squats, lunges and this I believe has helped with the knee issue.
    I need to get my distance up again but that will probably happen towards the end of winter.

    Cheers
    Neil

    Thanks TJ and Dana,
    I'm almost hitting my 10th year anniversary of barefoot running. It was a spring day in September 2009 when I last ran in bouncy built up running shoes and got shin pain. On that day I took off the shoes and walked the 1km back home and the pain eased off.
    I had a good 12km run today from Seacliff to Glenelg along the beach then back on the road. The only problem I face while on the beach is that I seem to attract all the dogs that think I am a thing they should chase as I'm running.

    Regards

    Neil
