Had some less than good news today so happy to get out for a little run and clear the mind.
Came to a point about a mile out from finish and thought right here we go. Slipped the sprints off and ran back barefoot. Wow! I swear by my sprints and yet, as minimal as they are I am still not barefoot. Still a world of difference.
The single track back road surface was quite course. No super smooth tarmac here. No matter. The gait and everything else adjusted and lost nothing in my pace. The pace may have been the same but I was running easier and lighter. Will be doing this again.
