TRANSITIONING TO BAREFOOT

Tips for Transitioning to Barefoot Running!

To avoid injury (85% of runners get injured every year), transition gradually from cushioned shoes to minimalist, to Vibram Five Fingers (VFF), and finally to barefoot.

Change from heel striking to forefoot striking gradually.

Be barefoot or wear VFF as much as possible, and treat your feet to reflexology massage every now and then!

Do your previous week’s drills and run 5 minutes after week one. Aim to build up to 5km of forefoot, barefoot or shoes over 8 weeks.
