Feelin’ ok.

After I ran 3k barefoot this evening. There was a short section of road that was still covered in sanding chips. That sucked, but the rest was pretty good. My arches and my calves feel it a bit, but it may be the combination of a day of building patios and retaining walls, then running barefoot. It was interesting because I ran the first 3k in shoes and I laboured quite a bit, then took off the shoe for the second loop and felt very light and quick (I am neither on the best of days).

Am having fun with the run club. The Website is great, the newsletter is fun and the people have started to come! We have our core group, and now we are getting new runners thinking about, or actually coming out!


  1. Way to punish your feet! Show 'em who's boss!


    And also for civilized people.


  2. Also, if you were trying to channel Traffic, I think the phrase you're looking for is "Feelin' Alright", not "Feelin' ok".

  3. Calf soreness is normal. Just remember: pain is your body telling you you're doing something wrong. Figure out how to move without it. P*SSIES!1! tend to learn how to run barefoot very quickly with very little drama. Be a P*SSY.

  4. @ GQH, i was just feelin ok tho, I wanted to channel the 1964 musical 'The Roar of the Greasepaint—the Smell of the Crowd', but I wasn't feeling GOOD.

    @ BFJ, the pain was mostly from laying 300 sq/ft of patio and 65 lin/ft of retaining wall, so I must be doing that wrong...
