Just a fun, no GPS feedback, no music, run to start the day. I have, apparently, spoiled my feet in to thinking that they don't really need running shoes. I spent the first mile of the run trying to convince them that we HAD to wear shoes today. It was incredibly hard to practice my forward foot strike with THESE giant clod hoppers on. My feet also felt very hot, no bueno.
It's hard, for me, to do things moderately. I operate with the needle buried most of the time. Attempting to retrain my running stride has built more than my calf and foot muscles! I'm building my patience muscle as well.
