I had a great run around the neighborhood this morning running barefoot as I have been doing the last few weeks. As has been the case the last few weeks, the achilles were fine on this run. Again, go figure! All I can say is that the run felt great.
My feet have developed a bit of callous where the longer barefoot runs had previously given me blisters. I suppose the barefoot running on roads and sidewalks in the neighborhood is a bit of a form drill. I run these flat barefoot runs at about a 9 minute per mile pace and keep my feet under me so to speak.
