New goals (and possibly new knees)

Posted: 25/06/2012 in Running

After yesterday’s unexpected half-marathon success, I’m clear to October and the Kielder Marathon. However, not being one to just work at the reasonable targets, I have another goal – I’m planning to learn to run barefoot.

I’ve fancied it for a while, but what with races and the rest I’ve never felt that it was the right time to start, what with my couple of attempts in the past having left me with aching calves for a week at a time. But now I have a clear window of opportunity.

Probably start in early July, and aim to use a programme and fit it into my regular runs. Who knows, with any luck I’ll be running Kielder in barefoot shoes, eh? Now that would be dandy.
