Check these out! I now own the Ugliest. Shoes. Ever.
Yes, those are little toe pockets. They are the closest thing to walking barefoot, but they protect your foot. They are.... weird. I like them, but I do think I went on too long a walk last night. They will take some getting used to for sure. But I did like the 'connectedness' I felt with the ground. I used to go barefoot from April until October. I'd keep Birks in my car in case I needed to wear shoes, but otherwise, never. I would go shoeless all the time if I could. But, I'm not a 19 year old unshaven hippie girl anymore, so I don't think I can pull that off. I think these are going to be great for KBs, too. I know barefoot is best when training, but you haven't seen my basement. Not wearing shoes is a health hazard.
Anyhoo, I'm off for more coffee and the usual daily crap. Boys are in school, so it's just us girls. Swing day later, anxious to see how I do, I've been a little sore from the 16kg, but I hate to go backwards in weight. I also hate low reps. Hmmmm. Which tradeoff is best?
