I’ve just come back from a wonderful 5k barefoot run. The swelling in my right arch is completely gone (thanks be to ice soaks!), so all is well again.
For the first time, I ran on some paved park trails near my house. They’re reasonably free of debris, but, more importantly, I could run on pavement without having to worry about traffic coming at me. So I’ll probably do more short barefoot runs on them.
As if all that weren’t good enough, it was a bright, sunny, albeit cool (6C) early morning.
Goodness, that was nice!
