Hi everybody so, its more than three years now that Im playing with my bare feet. I started from zero, dead feet, and wrong and violent gait. so, very soon and very fast I started to run better faster, and developed stronger and more flexible feet at the same time. what a joyful discovery ! But still, my feet are not made of iron, and if I run too fast (it means : with less precision), or on too challenging terrains, or too long distances, the next days I need protection on my feet if I want to keep on running. so here is my question, are you 100% barefoot runners ? do you still need protection sometimes ? what is your relation with the barefoot training ? how many years of preparation did you need before a painless and joyful barefoot marathon ? I guess we all are different, and it depends a lot on how were the feet at the beginning of the game... thanks for your feedbacks !
