My goals are to regain my health, my body and be able to call myself a barefoot runner. Ultimately losing 120-140 lbs.

Track and share your training!

Dailymile makes it easy to keep track of your workouts. Map your routes and share with a community of active people.

I'm starting to think that all running training guides are geared towards beginner barefoot runners. They want to make you think that the "rest day" is to rest the legs... nah, I don't buy it... I think it's to let the sore, pre-blister areas heal. :-)

    Rosemary, I follow a regular schedule (for shod runners). Which training schedule are you following?

    I'm doing the C25K training guide to prep for my May 5K. But moust if the ones I've seen give you a day of rest... For beginners, especially.

    I never follow those books, just do what works for me. There are soooo many "correct" ways to choose from, we'd never have time to run, for all the reading:) have fun!!

    Even the shod running plans give a day or two off. It's is for your own benefit. You won't get burnt out and/ or injured! I follow an advance training plan and according to the plan I am supposed to get 2 days off (but I don't). Follow a plan that is close to what you are after and adjust to your own schedule. That would be my advice :-)
