  1. RUN
    good Mt Wilson to Bilpin Bush Run 35 km 03:32 09:44 pace

    Ran it in VFFs. Great until 21Km, then it was steep rocky downhill, conventionally shod runners pounded past me as I tiptoed through the minefield of caltrop like stones. Got a few back on the uphi... read more

    I found these videos from "running with eric" very useful, and a great core workout.

  3. RUN
    good Mt Hay out & back 16.5 km 01:50 10:42 pace

    Good run, did the same as yesterday, focused on form, posture, and a strong core.

  4. RUN

    As they say, running is an experiment of one. Focussed on form and core, look after the posture and the foot strike looks after itself. Concentrated on driving from the hips, and relaxing in the lo... read more

  5. Compartment Syndrome - Help needed!
    Recent calf problems have been narrowed down to compartment syndrome of the soleus muscle. I believe it is direct response to muscle growth due to going barefoot... read more

      Is this officially diagnosed?

      Hi Farra, not yet. I have seen doctors but they have just focus on the treating the symptom not the cause. I will seek physio advice next week. I'm military, and a mate who had this problem and was dealt with by the system was operated on.
      Though reading about onset symptoms of compartment synrome I am feeling confident in the conclusion I have come to.

    good Prince Henry cliff track out ... 10.1 km 01:44 16:34 pace

    Barefoot run, some sealed, some tourist track, mostly technical, rocks, roots, and cold mud and puddles. Lots and lots of up and down on natural rock stairs and ladders. It was a fun outing, still ... read more

  8. RUN
    good Physical fitness test 2.4 km 00:09:15 06:12 pace

    Part of my annual fitness test, situps and pushups also involved for my job. Really an un-fitness test, at my age they give me 15 minutes to finish. But I love beating the 20 year olds.

      @ Alesa, just be careful which way you pat him.
      @ Dave, do you find you tend to sneak up on a lot of things barefooted, People, wildlife, wild pigs? I'm not looking forward to snake season here, we have some very deadly varieties.

      Yes, mostly rabbits and deer for me with the occasional scorpion or snake. Most of the snakes I've seen are poisonous. Fortunately, they never seem to be interested in me, but it is unnerving when they are sunning themselves on the trail.

  10. RUN
    good Prince Henry Cliff Track 8 km 01:00 12:04 pace

    Felt like I needed an easier day, so I had an active rest day. Technical trail run, out and back, finished up at dusk. All the animals come out at that time of night, I came across an echidna. (its... read more

    A bit of fartlek in the VFFs. A tour of the links, not a soul in sight. Golf courses are great on a Monday afternoon. A few snow flurries as well.

  12. Had a fantastic barefoot run this Thursday gone, only 8Km but my calves were problem free. I felt as if I could keep going forever. It's as if I've just burst through a membrane that has ... read more

    great Mt Hay fire trail out and back 25 km 02:50 10:56 pace

    Started as 05:30, dark, cold and raining. Rain stopped as the sun came up. Gave me a chance to try out my new North Face "Flight Series" rain jacket. It's so nice. Powered up the hil... read more

  14. RUN
    good 01:00

    VFF's, about an hour touring the neighbourhood. Dropped into the local Cafe at the end, VFF's are a great conversation starter.

  15. A Lovely barefoot, winters day run, air was cool, sky was clear, bitumen was warm, about 40 minutes.

  16. Been staying away. I'm still transitioning to barefooted running, I would describe myself as a barefooter with limitations. I recently received my copy of "Barefoot Running" by Micha... read more

    great Drills, strides, and core. 01:00

    First time I've done any real speed work in 27 years. Trying to get back some of the pace I had as a High School runner (800M 1:58, 1500M 4:04). Got a bit choaked up at the end as it brought b... read more
