    It always amazes me when people think running and weight loss are incompatible.
    I don't think they are incompatible--just not ideal for some people, depending on their goals.

    No worries, Dragon, I'm taking off a couple of months from running after my last race & focusing on fat loss. Leaner, meaner, fitter, faster

    Not to derail my own thread, but have you guys seen this:

    Fair, backpedal, but fair.

    I happen to think it's like squatting.

    Btw, wait until tomorrow if your calves and achilies were barking at you on a 1 mile run. My first run in my trail gloves I felt the same thing. Did an easy 5k (could jog 5-8 miles at the time, and was doing plyo routines barefoot for months) and felt that stretch and burn in the same spot around 2-3k. Gutted it out.

    My calves felt like they were set in iron for a week afterwards. Worst DOMS I'd experienced in years.

    Not a backpedal. I know & support Dr. BB's goals (been on the forum for awhile) and running is not necessarily going to help her with her fat loss. Apparently she agrees.

    Running has a long history of supporting fat loss, both through documentation and research. Where people have challenges is when they eat more from it. It will definitely help her, doubly so because she likes it.

    FWIW- I wore my Docs the other day and it felt like I had been kicked in the knees.. I think once you go barefoot.. there is no going back. LOL.

    p.s. I have a pair of new balance minimus and Vivobarefoot's besides VFF's. Love them all!
