Doing a 10k in barefoot is difficult and 50k must be hard. It is unthinkable that you had done a 100km in barefoot on that treacherous route. Your recovery is equally amazing. It is indeed impressive!!Well done bro!! I believe it has beneficial effect for many especially the larger community of runnners in 5 and 10k or even 21k. Thanks for the sharing. I am set to try one during my recovery. I beg you are itched to try it in the forthcoming StandardChart Marathon....

Just like to know if VFF KSO would be suitable for flatfoot? (Living in SG too :)

Flat feet should not be a problem Bryan! You may even find that in time you'll get a bit of an arch training with vffs!

I started using VFF classics just 3 weeks ago from Outdoor Life at Novena. I've previously been keeping my runs under 10k as I'd feel strain on my shins and knee joints. After reading online about barefoot running, I decided to try a pair with caution.

The first run was tough on my lower calf muscles for the next 2 days, but they were very obviously muscle aches and not strain. The odd thing was the total lack of ankle or knee joint tension, which I usually had to stop for a minor stretch after 2-3km. I'm now on to 5k (slow transition to barefoot style runs to build up the muscles I haven't been using in the past 38 years), and enjoying my runs more than ever, and gaining speed as well. There's definitely something about them, as I'm training less hard, but increasing speed, distance and comfort steadily!

Bernard ur a true life inspiration and have kept my faith in running . I own 2 pair of VVF. And transitioned nicely from old style shoes.Still long way to go to get to NorthFace level of fitness but i aspire to complete the 50km first.Brilliant story told from the Heart, runners can relate the agony and satisfaction it comes to that Last Stretch to the Finish Line ;-)
