Well I ran for the first time over the weekend in my Vibram Five Fingers! It was only a little over 2 miles and it was a slow pace but the entire family was with me so I had to hold back. This was probably a good thing.
Sarah even ran! Although she only ran (almost) one loop around our local middle school track (1/4 mile) and then gave up. DAMN!
I really want Sarah to run! I tried to help her, but most of the time my help comes in the form of criticism. Which tends to have a negative result.
I can only hope she does not give up completely.
I ran again Monday morning in my VFFs! The run is in the DailyMile on the right ->>>>
It felt pretty good. My achilles was sore and HURT after about 3 miles. I think it was the scar tissue breaking down because now it feels better.
Then I ran today! Now up to 11 miles in my VFFs. Much better pace today.
Only real problem has been blisters… But I don’t blame my VFFs. I blame my form, I think I was “pushing off”
Afterall I am an experiment of one..
