Five Days with FiveFingers – Day Four

Ok. This was the longest I wore them yet, and they still feet good. I strapped on the weights and mowed for a little under two hours. The shoes don’t provide much protection, so I wouldn’t recommend them for many yard chores (weedwacking and wood chopping are probably out), but mowing was fun. As I mentioned in previous posts, the barefoot feeling isn’t hype. I enjoyed the sensation of walking on grass the entire time.

I tried to emphasize digging in to work my calves–especially while walking uphill. I could feel them engage much better than the work boots I usually wear. Afterward, my legs were more fatigued than usual after this type of workout.

The last installment is coming up next. I’ll finally hit the road in FiveFingers!

Lucky enough to grow up with the martial arts, I have felt their positive influence throughout my life and am especially interested in sharing these experiences with others. I enjoy working with youth and adults to give back some of what I've received.
