Barefoot on Pavement

Posted Jul 12 2009 11:06pm

Something I've been toying with lately is running barefoot on pavement.  Tonight, I just did a couple of laps at the track in the Vibrams, and then headed for home.  I decided to run back barefoot on the pavement.  For whatever reason, this doesn't feel painful to me at all.  It only took about 5 minutes, and of course, I got a few strange looks along the way.

I actually think I run with better efficiency barefoot on pavement than any other style.  Maybe the combination forces more efficiency.  I have no desire to run barefoot on pavement just to put on a show, but if it helps me develop then I'll do more of it.  Of course, this won't be feasible in the wintertime, so it's a seasonal tool at best.
