Progress

Today I took an impromptu half day off from work and decided to try a barefoot run along the beach at Seaton sluice. Cracking day but blooming cold!
Thoroughly enjoyed the 3 mile up and down route and felt great afterwards. Quite liberating really. I've been transitioning to minimalist shoes for around 6 months now and have had a few niggles during this time - plantar fasciitis for one!

Training has been going exceptionally well recently and the ongoing issue around my plantar fascia seems to be drawing to a close. The past few weeks have been pain free. About time too! 50 miles per week since new year including some great rep sessions at the club.
Tried my hand at a park run last weekend and same old story - nervous, went off too fast and couldn't get into a rhythm. I need to find a way to convert my training into a race....and soon. The weather didn't help either, i'm sure it didn't reach above zero degrees. Hands and feet were numb by the end.

On course for a 60 mile week this week. Off work next week so hoping to get to the beach for another barefooter and definitely into the hills for a change of scenery. Looking forward to the time off.
