experiementing with vibram fivefingers
for my birthday i got a pair of the vibram fivefingers model kso (keep-stuff-out). i am dreaming of transitioning into big miles in these, and i am dreaming of really liking them. i had my first adjustment-trial run in them this week. i was thinking a two-miler when i headed out my door, but about a quarter-mile down the road my right calf started to complain. i adjusted the plan to a one-miler. these force me to run on the meat of my feet, which i thought i was doing before - but given the feedback i got during this first trial run i am starting to think my gait is not all i thought it was. i will continue to blog more about my experience as this adventure with the fivefingers continues.
