Last night I went on my first real run with the Vibram's. I could clearly feel the difference in my gait, as I felt like I was running much lighter on the balls of my feet rather than slapping and pounding the pavement with my full foot, heel first, as I used to in my running shoes.
I took it easy with a light and easy paced 6km run. I know it takes time to get used to and I did nto want to push it too soon too fast. I felt like I could have easily kept going for a longer run, but I cut it short as planned. 6km was the top limit I had considered running last night and I felt it smart to keep it at that limit despite my feeling like I could continue. Next time I will run longer.
So far so good.
