I have never been a runner; I walk. When I walk at the beach, I have always walked barefoot but wear shoes everywhere else.
Recently, I decided to try running but am in the research stage.
I just heard about barefoot running and that sound pretty good to me.
When I go to the gym after work tonight, I am going try walking barefoot on the treadmill.
Thanks for the encouragement. I went to the gym last night and used the treadmill barefoot. My gym buddy told me I was crazy and would hurt myself.
Since I am not a runner and not an athlete, I thought I should ease into it. I only did 22 minutes which consisted of alternating back and forth between 2 minutes of walking and 2 minutes of running. I stretched out when I was finished.
I noticed that the back of my calves felt a little tight later on but they are fine today.
