Just finished my longest VFF run. 11 miles. I just started BF and VFF running 6 4 weeks ago so I'm pleased with the increase. I'm up to 30-35 mile weeks. Once I return to 40-45 mile weeks, I'll be back to what my running schedule was in shods (of course, I'll never return to shods). I just need to add a few more miles and I will be ready for a half marathon in the VFFs (that's my goal). I'm probably 2-3 months away . . . I need to feel comfortable at about 15 miles in the VFFs for a half but I'll get there.
2 months ago I would have called this crazy and anyone doing it . . . I never would have thought I would ever switch to BF and VFF. But, I'm a convert not b/c the "personal" data is indisputable. I was told to take 2-3 months off. I immediately threw away the shoes and started BF . . . I've never stopped running; BF and VFF is why I could continue to run. I'll just continue to "rebuild" my body. I'm 40 yrs. old and I LOVE the idea of rebuilding my muscles and reverting my running form back to how I ran as a child. This is what makes life fun!!!!
It's never too late to accomplish anything in life!!
