Greetings all, I'm young and adventurous. I have no idea how I came across barefoot/minimalist running, but here I am trying new things. Prior to starting I have done the bare minimum (no pun intended) research in order to get started. Take it slow, get the posture right, get to know your feet is what I have taken so far. My research has primarily been around Dr. Nicholas Romanov, Lee Saxby, Chris McDougall and a couple of others I can't name off the top of my head but those appear to be the big names thus far. I have only be doing this for a couple of weeks but have an elaborate amount of experience with running, primarily long distance which is why this technique peaked my interest. My experience comes from running track and field as a kid (800m, 1.4km, and 1.6km races constantly) and doing my own 5k runs which takes ~30 mins. I'm not completely sold because A. Keeping an open mind and B. need to see remarkable results. With that being said, I walk ~30 minutes or 2km at 110bpm barefoot every night outside on concrete. Prior to that I do a warm up with the variations of deep squats, and hopping on two feet (2mins x 5 sets) at 90bpm to start, and a couple of other exercises for balance. I then lace up my regular shoes and go for a 2.5km run at 180bpm working on landing on my forefoot. My plan is to do a little bit more every month, while still attaining the knowledge. I am here seeking advice on if the direction I am heading is correct, and also any advice for progression. I am a serious athlete and would only expect the seriousness in return. I have also posted a few pictures of me in the deep squat. Unfortunately, only one of them shows my feet planted but I can assure you that my feet are the same in every picture. If you look in the one picture it just looks like I am crushing my ankles. In addition, there are also pictures of my feet while jumping at 90bpm, there seems to be some ankle issues. Just want to thank anyone that took the time to read and give advice!
