I didn't figure out how to search on this forum so I'm excusing for asking already answered questions.
I recently got interrested in barefoot running. Since I don't do any workout / fitness at all I probably could need some hints on where to start...
I walk regularly (couple of hours weekly). Problem is that I've used soft reebooks (walking model) and my feet a probably quite untrained.. This week I've started out walking in my old converse shoes. Since these are notoriuous "bad" flat shoes I guessed it could be a start. I've also gotten a pair of swimming shoes mentioned here. Now my feet are hurting a bit (not too bad, mostly a "tired" sensation in the arches) and I'm afraid of getting any common feet problems..
Also, I tried out some slow and careful jogging the other day (1min jogg / 1minute walk for a half mile).
Appreciate any tips/tricks !
