    Did a 3:30 hrs barefoot run

    Did a 3:30 hrs barefoot run today on asphalt. Did not measure but likly ~28 km. Very slow. No blisters minor abrasion. Starting to feel better about the May 29 marathon. Hoping to get one more 30 km run in before the race.

    I did my first BF half in

    I did my first BF half in November. I have another half next weekend. Then my real training begins next week for a 50K trail ultra in August. For some reason, I've seem to have skipped the marathon distance. I'm thinking about trying a trail marathon in July before the 50K just for kicks - or I may just do the mileage on my own. Eh? Who knows? I'm also planning to do the California International Marathon in December (my 3rd CIM, first time BF). I met Barefoot Todd on that course during my first shod marathon.

    I just finished my first

    I just finished my first barefoot marathon, so I thought I'd weigh in on a few things that helped me out.
    1. Masking tape stays on the best in my experience. Tip: seal the edges with super glue.
    2. Run on the paint stripe.
    3. If your feet start to feel raw, slow down.

    Nice work Terry. I need to

    Nice work Terry. I need to find a barefoot friendly trail ultra in my area.

    Lis Congrats on the marathon.


    Never thought of masking tape or supper glue to secure the edges.

    Will have to try it.

    Yesterday I tried strips of Duoderm. It worked well. There is a description
    of how to use Duoderm from a runner. Yes he is a shodie with different issues but interesting.




    (Hydrocolloid Pressure Sore Dressings work brilliantly - either Duoderm Ultra (or extra?) thin or Tegasorb - which is thicker and good if it's a nasty heel blister which is really raw.
    Ask the pharmacist - they're not on display - typically used in residential care homes


    Get a largeer size than you think - and overlap the affected area by a lot

    vaseline on top of the dressing last thing before you put your socks and trainers on , on the day.

    the forces use them - and I've used the Duoderm in the London Marathon

    Apply at least 12- 24 hours before doing the run on clean really well dry foot / feet )

    Nate- I use the tape to cover hot spots. I usually get them after running in the rain.
