Thanks for the kick in the butt. It has been too long since I was out in my vibrams...so nice 20mins with Strider.
She also recommends eating lots of red meat(preferably with your hands), icecream and chocolate sauce.
Yeah, she's definitely not vegan. ;)
Awesome article. I couldn't agree more. I would like to start incorporating more barefoot running, but have been very pleased with switching completely to minimalist running thus far. Showing my Achilles some lengthening love.
Hi Sara!I follow Camille's blog too & am planning on doing more bf running. Can you clue me in to how I should slowly transition to bf running. I think you said you started with some walking & then sets 2 min running w/ 1 min walking. And one month later built up to 15 min bf running. Can you elaborate on how many sets you did and how many min you increased per week to build to 15 min? Thanks, Dean
Hi Dean,I actually did a post with that info...http://saratraining.blogspot.com/2011/07/super-cautious-return-to-barefoot-runs.htmlGive it a read, and if you have any additional questions, fire away. You can see that at the beginning I was super cautious, but once things started to feel good I added bigger chunks of time. After I wrote that post, I did 20 minutes a couple of times, and eventually some faster-paced barefoot running (which is another way to progress, as it uses the muscles more).Always err on the side of caution, and stop immediately if your feet tell you to.Good luck with it! Sara
Thanks Sara! That's exactly what I needed. I'm going to start right after my marathon race this weekend.Dean
