    Running barefoot - How far? jpg

    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    Indeed. Too bad it didn't show a measured distance of grass instead of concrete...

    I started a month ago,
    Intuitively knowing I needed to ease into it, even though I did spend regular time barefoot around the house etc, I gradually ramped up over 2 weeks.
    My circuit involves a bike ride then on foot, mixture of terrain, rocks, sand, grass, hill & flat and mostly walking, only short sections of running and then finish with a cold swim.
    Even though I could feel a bit of strain here & there, I thought that was normal adjustment, then about a week ago, the left foot in particular became inflamed, mainly around the toes, so I gave it a break for a bit and actually did some research on others experiences, it was only then I realised the degree that both my feet and legs needed to reach their normal barefoot state.
    So after a couple of days rest, slightly anxious, the inflamation subsided and it was then that I really started to feel where the adaptation was occuring, friction burns on the pads of the toes, stretched joints/ligaments under toes, impact points on the outside of little & big toes and then found I was feeling significant calf pains as well, looked that up and sure enough that was a barefoot thing too.
    Did my circuit again yesterday, but at a much more gentle pace and will aim to hold that till all the pains subside before I ramp up the intensity again.
