I think the biggest mistake people make when going barefoot or minimalist seems to be trying to do too much too soon. The feet aren't used to it so it's important to build it up very very slowly in order to strengthen the muscles in the feet and legs for this "new" way of walking.

I started out with just 10 minutes of walking one or two times a week. I'm now able to comfortably walk for an hour or run for about 20 minutes. It's taken me almost 6 months to reach this level so I've been doing it very gradually.

But thanks for your concern Rob...

Thats kinda what that article stated...........keep us posted on how it is going. There are so many "experts" with their own spins, on the internet. Sometimes you dont know what to believe and what not to believe!

I agree. It's so easy to get overwhelmed with all the information out there. Sometimes the only way to know is to try it yourself.

Hey sounds like you do great with your traveling for work. I'm only gone from home 4 days per week so I can at least have a set routine. Yours would be hard.
I like your interval goal. They never would get boring. Although they wouldn't be easy lol

Hey Waleed,

Really digging Mark's Daily Apples. I've got the book and all of his stuff of the net printed. I'm working my way through it now.

My son just started training with me as we're running a Warrior Dash together in September. It will make it easier for me since I'll be helping him steer away from "conventional wisdoms blueprint" and adopting the "primal" one.

We're leaving Tues for a road trip to NY (We migth get to meet John Romanello!). I'll be able to help him start learning better habits.

Keep up the good work.

Hi Waleed , As a person who works 3 jobs ( 1 fulltime and 2 partime) and new father of twins I can full relate to your dilemma with work and finding time for training. Sounds like the travelling and long hours ae the biggest problem but that said you are getting in the workouts where you can so hat off to you friend keep it up

I actually seem to do quite well with my workouts etc when I'm travelling. I'm usually in a city I know well which makes it easier to eat right and I usually choose a hotel that has good a gym. In many ways, it's easier to get workouts done when I travel because it's just me and there isn't much else to do after work. At home sometimes in can get a bit busy, especially in the afternoons with kids' homework and actrivites and errands and things to do around the house that my wife thinks up for me . It seems to take a lot more effort to get workouts in at home whereas when I'm travelling, it's a welcome distraction after work and to "pass the time".

Tictac, good luck with the twins! I had a friend who had twins and he said he can't remember their first 4 years, he was so busy - he used to look forward to coming to work so that he could get a break! So I think you're more deserving of a "hat-tip" . Hope it all works out well.
