2019-03-07 Running

Barefoot running (that is, forefoot running, ie not landing on your heels, but usually wearing thin soles, may e sandals) takes practice. And walking in these shoes, or even walking barefoot at home takes practice if you want to avoid the thump! thump! thump! of landing on your heel. So I have mantras to whisper to myself: quietly! Softly! Slowly! Shorter steps! Swing your arms freely. Don’t keep your hands in your pockets.

How did you make the switch?
