|First Run in Too Long|
I went for a run today and actually used the FiveFingers for (most of) the reason I bought them. It was quite the experience; certainly, I'm pleased to say, quite delightful. I felt light and fast and even a little springy with little between me and the ground. My footfalls were lighter too, favoring the midsole and forefoot more than I tended to with running shoes. I had no ankle pain as I did with running shoes nor any back pain, at all, after the run.
My feet did rub a little funny and I have a few blisters but this is nothing new. I'm contemplating toe socks if I can't adjust the fit well enough. But, damn if I didn't really enjoy the run.
I even ran the fastest mile I've run before succumbing to the blisters. I was sad. Then I walked 7 more miles downtown.
Now. I have an almond flour pizza in the oven, if you don't mind.
