Barefoot Running 1.9 Miles on Asphalt
This is the road I run barefoot on. It’s a bit rough. Not like smooth, black asphalt. I am still getting calluses. I believe that means my form still needs help. Two days ago I ran 1.9 miles barefoot and it felt good, as long as I kept Ken Bob’s mantra in my head: back straight, head on top of body, bent knees, spread toes. I still felt it on my soles though. But it still felt good!
I go slow. I’m still playing and not going for distance. This is where being a new runner is helpful; I have no personal records to beat. In fact I’m just amazingly proud that I’m staying with it and everything feels good. 1.88 miles in 22.5 minutes, no stopping, for me – is fantastic! Let me know how your barefoot running is going – beginner or expert. There’s much to learn from each other.
