Warning – Post contains feet

Look away now if you hate feet – Some people do, some people don’t. Most don’t lets face it.

I have a few blisters and sore patches I usually tape up and ignore but the tide was in today and I felt like doing some hill sprints. So I decided to do them barefoot, I figured it’s hill sprints – the impact is low.

It was actually quite fun and surprisingly easy to drive off the forefoot but it was absolutely bloody freezing on the soles on the way down.  I have to say I really enjoyed the change, I mean I wouldn’t fancy the impact at any pace but for a steep hill like this it felt like floating up. In fact although I stopped counting my GPS tells me I did around 20 and to be honest I didn’t blow up or get the jelly legs. I was sad when it started to get dark and my frozen feet drove me to go home.

High tide and sun in the sky
Argghh feet and the hill of less pain that usual – What a terrible name
My sun has gone =(

    Have you looked into Merrel and their pace gloves? … barefoot feel but a bit protection and because of their vibram sole they kinda stick to rocks.
