Walked around a large shopping centre. NOBODY noticed my Speeds...or if they did they didn't comment. Makes a change!  Grin

Yesterday, I had a nice 10km barefoot walk/hike in the woods. I also did some recordings of spring nature sounds (with a digital recorder), so I can play that in my apartment as "white noise".

Today, I had a barefoot grill, in our garden ;-)

I find that Speeds, because they look most like trainers and don't have a contrasting colour between the toes, draw the least attention. Most people (my Dad included, until I pointed them out) don't notice the toes at all.

Yesterday evening I read at church in my Speeds and nobody commented.

Today I had to wear the Tough Gloves due to it being a little wet out. (British understatement.)

Took our dogs for a walk at a local lake.  We had two other dogs go after ours, another families dogs, and constant barking at people walking...  We had to sit and wait 15min for them to get ahead of us twice because we kept catching up.  We tried to pass but when we saw the one dog get away from them and go after someones ankle bite-er.  We decided to just wait it out.  Ours are well behaved, but being bully's would have been blamed if anything happened...

Went to the beach and attempted to walk some nature trails barefoot, there was one that leads over part of a swamp, just a wooden dock like walkway and the wood was even hotter than blacktop asphalt... Made it to the end of that and both me and my also barefoot friend decided it was just to intense and went all the way back to the car for some KSOs then walked another trail. I feel that them calling the trails nature trails is a little misleading, the scenery is pretty but all the paths are covered in gravel, we went out with the intent of being barefoot all day and walking in some dirt and mud but no...

I went for a 5km walk (barefoot) in to the forest, with my friends kids and their dog & my girlfriend. Before that, I went to a local Post Office and a food store also barefoot, and worked without shoes nearly all day in my friends garden, building a new wooden fence.
At the end of a day, I had a nice, cold beer, also barefoot, that is  ;-)

It is good to have a long weekend as we call it here - almost 10 days out of work for everyone :-)

It's the wettest drought in human history, I'm sure!  Roll Eyes People have started to wryly joke about whether they'd be allowed to use their hosepipes to drain the floodwater out of their properties...

Very offputting for this Isle's VFF wearers - I've only worn mine twice this month - once was indoors!  Undecided

Went to a read-through of a play this evening (amateur) in my Speeds. A dozen people were there and I don't think anyone noticed them.

Then when I got back home, walked down to post box to post a letter, remarked to myself on how mild and dry an evening it was, so extended the walk to half an hour (about 1.5 miles horizontally and 150 ft up and down).

Then feeling a little energised on my return, I wrote a UTF-8/UCS packer/unpacker module from scratch in C.

Last night I went for my first trail run in my Luna Leadcat sandals. The trails have been either snow covered or way too wet/cold to bother with. I've had a real problem getting these dialled in just right, but I've found the right tensions to lock them onto my feet. I went 7k on the local trail system here in fort mcmurray. The trails are fantastic, and can be very easy, or insanely hard depending on which route you take. I went for a hilly section with a big drop and a steep climb. I am really pleased with how these feel off road. The grip is very good, and the thicker sole takes away enough of the gravel and roots that you can appreciate the thicker sole. The trails are groomed with medium sized gravel that has somehow evenly spaced its way across the trails. Even in my VFF treks it leaves my feet tender, but these sandals handle the trail really well. Personally I find road running tedious, as you are just running along a sidewalk and you can see forever ahead. Loved it!

I'll have to admit that on road, these don't quite work as well. They are fantastic off road, but not really great for road runs. They are just too thick and my form suffers for long distsnces on pavement. That's what my equus sandals are for! They are the opposite, great on road, but no grip in loose sand or anything wet off-road.

Second weekday wearing my KomodoSport LS to work.Should be fun.( the first time,last week, was a hoot.The looks people gave me when they noticed my shoes..)

BTW,can't wait for the Speed XC to be released in the US.(then I wouldn't have to worry about the rain.)
