My last post and back to the Bristol Half Marathon. Come 2011 I ran it in my Evo II minimalist shoes. I ran a minute slower than 2010 but came 100 places higher up the field – so a great result.
However, my calves were incredibly stiff for the three days following the race. This is the one area where I find barefoot or minimalist running has a detrimental affect on my body – road running.
