Nice run, you have got to love this weather. I'm not certain where your barefoot goal is heading but this is my experience. I did about a month of all barefoot (on asphalt and pavement) last May. My feet got to fast for the skin on the bottom of my feat (lots of blisters and not enough patience). I switched to a racing flat (made the transistion to a fore-foot strike - went from 20 to 50 miles per week)through the end of August and then got into a pair of Vibrams (difinately different than the racing flats - I am currently doing 60-70 miles a week in the Vibrams).

Chad, I'm not sure were my BF running is heading but I do want to learn the BF stride and strenght my feet. Maybe then I'd start putting some miles on a minimalist shoe or Vibrams.

The one thing I'm trying to do is make a slow transition.

From Chad Robinson on Thu, Mar 10, 2011 at 16:25:16 from

I found my biggest transition was getting my calves, achilles, ankles and feet used to a fore/mid foot strike over an increased distance. It did help that I was starting from a relative low baseline (recovery from a collapsed lung from a gun shot wound Noveber of 2009) for training so I was slowly building mileage as it was. There was still a difference from the racing flats to Vibrams. Vibrams definately simmulate barefoot well minus the hot spots (most of my running is done at night so it is nice having the extra barrier for my feet).
