After the weekend’s bad race I’ve been really down when thinking about running. Luckily spring has finally come to Copenhagen, and I ran in shorts and t-shirt today, like I have been dreaming about all winter. After a short, fast run I took off my shoes and ran another mile. That will be my third “barefoot run”. (I’ve ran barefoot before I knew it was a thing, of course.) I ran on a patch of new pavement. It felt absolutely great. I think I might start to do it more often, maybe as a warm-up.
And I’m still onthe fence about buying a couple of racing flats. If minimal feels good, why buy shoes with more sole? On the other hand, I might want some protection for longer runs. Well, for now it’s minimal shoes.
