Barefoot Running Step by Step (2011)

Always Remember…

  1. Running Barefoot should be comfortable (on almost any terrain)
  2. Running Barefoot should be easy
  3. Running Barefoot should be FUN!
If any of these are not true for you right now, then play with how you are running until it is more comfortable, easy, and joyful.

Summary

Fun Run with Bernard. We deviated from the norm, and ran to the far south end of the wetland trails discovering great amounts of gravel – the first steps are the roughest, the technique starts smoothing the gravel out.

After running about a mile over sharp gravel trails, we crossed the highway to run back along the paved trail on the beach side.

  • I regularly run in the Bolsa Chica wetlands, and I’ve been wearing varieties of Vibram 5 Fingers for the past three years — when I say “wearing,” I mean all the time wearing, including to work and to church, and on my usual runs on the HB beach bike path and up the Santa Ana River trail, from the beach to Anaheim Stadium. The sharp gravel on parts of the Bolsa Chica trails cuts too much into Vibram KSOs for tolerable comfort, although it’s tolerable in the stiffer soled Bakilas. When I “run” in KSOs on the sharp gravel, my “running” is quite similar to that depicted in your videos, which I wouldn’t describe as running, but rather as “gingerly fast walking.” I think that there is a difference between “running” (which I can easily do in completely bare feet for long distances on asphalt or concrete or packed dirt or grass) and “ginger fast walking” (which is what barefoot “runners” tend to do on gravel). – Larry Weisenthal/Huntington Beach CA

    • Come join us/me for a fun run on Tuesday and Thursday evenings 6PM, and Saturday mornings 10AM. We usually run on the paved bike path in the evening when it’s dark, and over to the wetlands when it’s light outside, and an occassional low-tide run, depending on the tide level. And sometimes if no one RSVPs and my neighbor is out of town, it’s just me and Herman (my old dog) doing “dog intervals” (lots of walking, sniffing, peeing, interspersed with occassional sprints after seagulls, and Harley Davidson motorcycles).
