So remember a few months ago, right after Seth’s R&R, when I decided to buy myself a pair of these?
And how my plan was going to ACTUALLY start RUNNING in them REGULARLY?
Yeah – life happened.
Juggling child care and everyday life became way too complicated.
My lovely new Vibram toe shoes lived happily under my dresser with an occasional adventure out of the apartment.
Even though I didn’t have the free time to run, they were still reeeaaaalllly comfy for everyday wear.
So when Seth got home a month ago, I decided I wanted to try to start running again.
“I’m going for a RUN” I announced one day.
I put on some comfy sweats, strapped on my toe shoes,
and confidently went outside to embrace the freedom of the open road.
Here is what I learned in less than 5 minutes.
1 – Running outside with bare foot shoes on a snowy January day -
is just like running bare foot in the snow.
2 – While I have mentally matured and added knowledge and wise experiences to my brain since high school,
I have not physically matured and added muscle and strength to my body.
In fact. I’ve not added muscle at all.
I needed a new plan. And a spoon.
“Why don’t you grab your keys and go to one of the gyms on post?”
Um. Good question.
(This two parent household thing is something I could get used to!)
How often do you find time exercise in your busy life?
What are your thoughts on these new fangled ‘Flintstone Feet” type shoes?
