Another day in the gym with my minimalist shoes forced me to take it easy on the treadmill. For a minute or two, I almost forgot I was wearing them and started running as normal.
That’s not good – I’ve been advised time and time again not to do that, but to build it up slowly.
I felt rushed, due to the schedules of other people but as I plan to come here more often, I suppose I should let this one go.
I just don’t like that dissatisfied feeling you get when you leave feeling as if you could have done more.
Apart from some easy treadmill power walking/jogging, I went through some floor work and then told my fiance I would race her to 1k on the stationary bike, as when I saw her she couldn’t have been pushing the pedals round more slowly!
Next day update: I’m glad I stopped when I did. My legs were strangely aching today. I’ve been warned that this happens when getting used to minimalist shoes as well.
I went for an evening run in my “normal” shoes today.
