Ran a short and sweet 3.2 miles this morning - here's the workout link - my average time is definitely falling. I am using a Galloway method to increase speed and endurance - that means I walk every 6th minute, so the pace is actually better than it looks.
I have now been running on minimal shoes, the running barefoot idea, for over six months and I love it. Shorter stride, mid-foot strike, more thoughtful and careful running and working to avoid injury.
Next step - find a marathon to train for so that I can work towards my Boston qualifying time. I am thinking Kiawa Island in December.
