Good day all.
Well yesterday I had not planned on doing a Park run, but as it was International Park Run day, and they were trying to set a record, I mozied on down to partake.
In lovely weather and excellent conditions I ran the 5km Park Run barefoot, and scored a 22;15 min finish. More than a minute faster than last week with shoes (and rain). Admittedly I did not give it 100% (ok I did 98%) as I knew I had signed up for the Freo Half Marathon today.. Vince Naylor is another barefoot runner, and how good to not be the only “hardcore/aka weirdo” on the course! Vince Naylor is the race Director for the Lake Joondalup Park Run.
And yes, as per my post on barefoot faster options, I personally find barefoot is faster 🙂
