I've been tending to demanding obligations the past few days and will be into tomorrow, but not to worry, publishing is not stopping.
Remember: if you're new to barefoot running, do 100 yards the first day. Do 200 yards the second day and work your way up to abut a half mile. Keep your barefooting down to that distance for at least a few weeks while your skin toughens, then you can double your barefooting distance.
If you were wearing minimalist shoes before barefooting, you can up your barefoot distance further after your skin toughens. But if you've been wearing traditional shoes, give yourself more time, a lot more time, so that the muscles in your ankles, made lazy by shoes, can develop.
I'll be back very soon! Catch you barefoot!
