So I finally received my Vibram 5 Fingers in the post in the new year after a too long wait. I've already worn them to crossfit, walked the dogs in them and been out for two runs and they'e fab!! I thought it would take a while to get used to them but it hasn't taken very long at all! In fact it feels a lot less stressful on my knees running in them especially when I hit uneven ground. SOOOO they look kind of odd but they feel great. I have started to notice my calves are geting a good work out!!! so will need to keep more relaxed but other than that all is great.
Was out with the GODDESSes today running the Monon around Broadripple and it felt good to be out albeit cold. I think in about a month I shall be back in my stride with my new footwear and able to start pushing myself a bit further - I wish I'd started running in these months ago!!!!
