Barefoot Runners

barefoot = shote type or workout type? (Read 247 times)

    Now that I've completed my second barefoot run I'm wondering how most people record barefoot runs? On RA it seems like there are two options * use a shoe type of "barefoot" or * create a custom run type of "barefoot" I opted for the first option as I hope to enjoy standard work-outs later while barefoot although now my limited range has made them both recovery runs. MTA: Plus I like seeing a "shoe" of $0 accumulating miles
      I do the exact same thing to record my BF runs. I've gone almost 100 barefoot miles in my Barefoot shoes at no cost Big grin My intention is to run 40-50% of my total mileage BF, and to reach 40mpw in mid-late summer '09. Bill

        I enter my runs into RA, but don't take advantage of shoe or run types. I keep a separate log in Microsoft Access, and I created a "shoe type" to keep track. So far all my barefoot runs have been on a treadmill. Not all my treadmill runs have been barefoot, though. I hope to run barefoot outside next summer, so a run type would not work for me either.

          That is awesome!

          That is me also. The t-mills at work hav a fairly rough belt so I hope any sole adaptations will be beneficial when I try some roads.
