I am loving this whole concept of minimalist running. There is something natural about running almost barefoot. You really can feel the difference when you put on a pair of Vibrams compared to a normal running shoe. The key is to make sure you do the proper training before you jump right in.
This PDF from Vibram will help you. Just follow this link and you will get some amazing tips.
For me it is about strengthening my feet and calves. I could not believe how much pain I was in when I did not to the proper training and I just went out running. It really challenged me and pushed me to get my feet in better shape. This style of running is more natural.
Make sure you follow the Vibram manual for getting started. Another area that Billy Beck III introduced me too was using a golf ball to break down the scare tissue and massage the bottom of the foot. This technique is amazing for overall foot health. Even if you do not get into minimalist running give the golf ball a try, your feel will love you for it.
I will keep you updated on my new training experience of minimalist running. If you have some experience I would love to hear your comments and thoughts below.
