      all of us can run the marathon . . . the question for me is how many can do it efficiently, correctly and without injury? That group is small in my humble opinion . . .

      Interesting reading.. I've been running minimalist, not barefoot, but I don't have 10 years to retrain.

      So Harry, you run on a "rest day"? (You may have explained this already, but just curious.)

      Yes, I consider a "rest day" a day I run under 40 min. . . goal is to run about 30 min. but definitely not more than 40 min. . . . since I run 7 days a week, Monday and Fridays are "rest day" runs meaning in the 30 min. range

      Nice one Harry!

      Don't know if it's the same for you, I think for me the Fun Factor makes me run a bit faster when I'm switching to Barefoot, so maybe it can explain why my turnover is raising.

      I hate that heel pain! Mine is finally starting to get better after more than 6 months. For me it was that I needed to get back to stretching and core work. I also started wear a shoe that is a size bigger than i normally wear, I think I feet have grown over the years and I didn't keep up with it.

      @Brian, I also had to go to a bigger shoe years ago. I suspect that using all the eyelets put pressure on the forefoot and impacted the spreading of the toes at impact. But, 2 days later, all is good and back to normal . . .

      pretty amazing how something like the extra set of eyelets could throw off the stride enough to irritate the heel.. nice job figuring it out - and nice week of miles, Harry!
