This is how it happened: I went to buy new running shoes today. And since I am sensitive for injuries, I was advised to try something new. Natural running shoes new. Being eager to test the theory of barefoot running and tempted by the pretty blue colour, I gave in.

My Barefoot Run Pace Glove's by Merrell.

For barefoot running you switch to a forefoot landing instead of the more common heel strike. Read more about it on these informative websites:

So now my running schedule has changed a bit. The coming weeks I will be running a couple of minutes on my Merrel’s first, then return home to put on my ordinary shoes. Hopefully building up my strength to be able to run around the neighbourhood in my bright blue shoes one day.
