I had a little milestone today for the toughest barefoot run I've completed...its kind of a break through for me. There is a technical 6 mile wooded trail right behind my house, nice nice hilly trail but rough...too rough for barefooting or so I always thought. I've tried to run it a few times barefoot and always a FAIL and had to walk most of it. Today I finally conquered it barefoot in a very slow time but I did it, average pace was like 13 min/mile...it was hi 80's with hi humidity too. I planned on just walking it but once I started the idea popped into my head to test myself on this since I hadn't tried to run it barefoot since last summer. Sure enough it wasn't nearly as hard as I remember, I've made some good barefoot trail progress since then. This is one of the harder trails I know of except in the Georgia mountains so I think I'm ready to hit the mountains later this summer.
