I have been running barefoot most mornings for the past couple of weeks, so what went wrong today?

The morning runs were with my 14 year old daughter and so we went slowly, it was cool out and we never went more than 2 & 1/2 miles at a time. Today I went on my own and so at a much faster pace, it was over 90F out though most of the road was in the shade. I had these blisters by the two mile mark, so the distance alone cannot account for it.

The two miles after the blisters set-in was--actually not so bad. Sure, my feet hurt, a lot. But the rest of me was enjoying the slower pace in the heat and barefoot running is really easy on the joints if you do it right.

I will be doing precious little of running or walking for a while though!
