It has been almost two weeks since I went out walking/jogging, but I manned up today and greeted the sunrise. Part of the break was because I’d messed my shoes up again–turns out when it’s early in the morning and I’m tired, stumbling around in the name of exercise, I sometimes drag a toe on the concrete. When this happens, the fine upper fabric of the Vibram Fivefingers tears, leaving me with a hole above my toenail. I was afraid to wear them with the hole, afraid of tearing them further.
Some shoe goo, a few days for that to dry, and a good night’s sleep let me get out again, and it was great. I think this weekend I’m going to try and jog 5km just because I keep reading about them and how hard they are. How painful will it be? Probably terribly, but I’ll have a couple of days to recover.
Any 5k tips you can share with me?
