    Finally put some km in (I think. Let me know if they don't appear in the spreadsheet). I haven't been running much but I'm doing the Glenbrook trail marathon on Sunday so that'll add a few kms for us.

    Anyone else doing Glenbrook?

    Nice one Manuwi ! We're way ahead at the moment !!!

    I'd love to do a trail marathon, but that will be for the future...I am still building my km's...Currently I think I could finish a 20km or so

    Good luck with the marathon !

    I added some more but now we're about 60 behind.
    Our average per member is 82km
    Illinois average per member is 127km
    I don't like running enough to catch up with them :)

    I'm letting the side down this month - haven't been able to run for a week now. I'll be even more depressed if this lets England get in front of us! :)

    Good job everybody!

    hi guys! I did well adding my milage until I came down like a tone of bricks with a cortisone shot in my itb last week. Kal assures my my itb problem is merely a blip and will pass. I do have a few more km to add - I have to check my watch but I think there was probably about 30 or so there. I am not allowed to run for 10 days and then we will see what happens from there - unfortunately the milage from pool running is not worth adding - although a lot more fun than I thought. Perhaps we could implement a converter - an hour pool running = 1 hour land running ...it is barefoot after all. I have been miserable at the very mention of not being able to run for 10 days, but I plugged in my waterproof sony this morning and powered out an hour of pool running and half an hour of laps this morning - and it was pretty good......wonders will never cease! I am supposed to be training for 100km in October, so if the itb all clear once my ban is lifted I will give you plenty of km's :)......btw I would be very very very interested if any of you have barefoot itb experiance that you would like to share.

    Well I took the kids bike riding and we did a little three km, but going to TRY and hit out 17.5 km tomorrow :confused: trying to get some more road distance in as opposed to trails which is all I have really done since early this year .......Mudgee Running Festival was on this weekend......saw 1 in 5's and a pair of Lunas :)

    I'm hoping to be back running again in a couple of weeks after doing some intensive calf strength work. It is making a difference I can feel it in the pain I was getting in the morning fading off.
    The thing I find odd is that I made the assumption that with all the barefoot running I was doing that my calves would be automatically strengthened and did not need any extra work.
    That may not be the case.
    I did get delivery of a set of the Bare Padz. I will only use them in the winter when it is cold out on the roads. I have tried them and they take a bit of getting used to. I went on a walk the other day and found that they kept slipping off. They only pull over the front of the foot[​IMG] so there was no retaining feature. I think it may be different when running and landing with a more neutral stance rather than walking.
