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.

I'm in my mid 60s' and trying to get back to running. Right now, I love to walk. I gave up running years ago because of the pain, but since then have walked regularly.

I've read Ken Bob's "Barefoot Running Step by Step" but I'm having trouble effectively using his running technique while walking as he describes on P. 150 of the book. There, he suggests "walk when you feel like it", and to use the barefoot running technique as you walk.

I understand what Ken Bob is saying. However, I can't follow his technique and walk fast enough to making walking useful and productive so I actually get anywhere in reasonable time. And when I speed up my walking pace to try to make walking productive and save some time, I immediately revert into bad technique and begin to 'heel-plop again.

So is there any best technique for walking, that helps train us for good running barefoot technique, wile at the same time makes walking efficient? So we can 1) enjoy walking, 2)make walking useful by covering some distance; and 3) train effectively for barefoot running? I can't figure it out.
