Well, tonight I ran outside for the first time I can remember. I had stopped running completely for probably 4 months, until last week I started running just a mile on the treadmill after tae kwon do classes. When I was running last I was running on the treadmill for months – it just appealed to me for a while.
All I ran was a mile and a quarter before class tonight, but that’s all it took. I feel the addiction starting again…
I have to say, as not-common-sense as it may sound I think running barefoot outside is so much better for my feet than running on the treadmill. On the treadmill my toes get sore from rubbing on the tread, outside my feet feel fine. I did see a lot of little broken glass in 2 places tonight, but that’s pretty easy to see reflecting the street lights.
Anyways, the long and short of it is I do believe it’s time to get back on the running horse and start working on getting some mileage going!
So no photo today. The prompt was landmark, I really didn’t have anything older to fit that prompt and I didn’t even get outside today on my lunch so I had no chance of getting a photo today. All good though – it’s been a great day.
Have you ever tried barefoot running? If you like running and you haven’t tried it barefoot, what’s stopping you? Give it a try!
