Off we go again

Well now the weather has improved  I have dumped the shoes (except for purposes of decorum on essential trips to the village) so maybe finally I can start getting my back back into shape. I'm taking it slowly again, 1000 paces on the gravel a day for a week or so which is only about 12 minutes so no hardship. It's amazing just how quickly the body adapts to barefooting and how slowly it adapts back to shoes again.
The snow is melting high up too so  hopefully I can start hiking again soon. I can't wait, really this winter has footwise and backwise been a nightmare.


  1. Just had my first barefoot of the year - always good to get back into it

  2. 4winds! Hello! I've just been reading about Californians and the like who barefoot all year. Lucky them. Every time I take my shoes off it snows. It snowed yesterday, the 11th of april. But you're right, even if it's only briefly at the moment it's great to get back into it. You just feel everything stretch out and relax.
