Hello everyone.Started Hello everyone. Started jogging last August and in January, decided to slip off my trainers at the and of a run and try barefoot. A few weeks later, it felt stranger running in shoes than not, so I've ditched them altogether and am currently building up the minutes running barefoot (currently at 25 minutes every other day). I'd been interested in the idea of BF running since December after I stumbled across a Youtube video of Michael Sandler whizzing around in barefeet. I was then lucky enough to get the Michael Sandler book for Christmas, so after a bit of reading up, I was ready to go for it a few weeks later. Must say, I'm really enjoying the liberty and sensation that trotting around barefoot confers and so far, I've had no injuries other than a scraped big toe and bruised forefoot pad, neither of which have held things back.... All my running's been done on pavement and road, up and down hill and by streetlight (I go out after the kiddies are put to bed) so for anyone thinking of going for it, just do it and build up slowly. I jog every other day and build up by 5 minutes every week, providing my body and feet are up for it. I live down in Eastleigh in Hampshire so hello to all, especially anyone down this way. Looking forward to the 5k in Brighton in May!
