I go barefoot, but my dog wears shoes.

Ha!  I joined this board planning to start the same topic!!!! Grin

I'm 35 yo male, about 208 lbs and I run about 6-8 miles 5 times/wk.  My knees are shot.  My hips hurt.  My legs ache about 70% of the time. 

Lately I've been spinning instead of running, but that's about to drive me insane.  I'm seriously considering VFFs.

Which pair of VFFs are best for running on pavement/road?

Thanks!!!!

Take some time looking around the forum. Your question has been answer many times over and you'll find helpful tips in the VFF running board.

So, not sure how to do this, but perhaps if a moderator is watching the boards, would they be willing to set up another category, or a child category for us to discuss our VFFs and weight loss?

Thanks,

Day 1 of my VFF weight loss.  Woke up and did a 10 minute "The Biggest Loser" Cardio workout.  Planning on after lunch.

To answer Hans question and anyone else's.  i used to run a lot.  Road and mountain biking as well.  I stopped running for a while and when i got back into it my knees and hips just weren't cooperating.  I started running barefoot and I had less problems.  After getting the form down I have had no issues.  Im not as fast as i used to be yet but that'll come with time and training i'm sure.

Awsome, you know what's funny, I went back to the gym this morning, so this is day 1 for me too. I skipped the summer, because it's the busy season, & I had to put more hours in.  Good luck to you. We got this.

Day 2, Woke up and did "The ABC's of Hip Hop" this morning, wont ever do that one again.  Went walking yesterday after lunch, learned some things about walking on a rocky path with my VFFs on.  Figure things will get easier the more I walk the same path.  Walking again today.

'Nother large barefooter here. Started off in my VFF KSOs about 4 months ago at 274 lbs. Down to 241 lbs, thanks mostly to being more active and starting to run again thanks to my toe shoes. On my way down to 210 lbs, I hope.

Ok, so I took the plunge and purchased the Biggest Loser 30 day workout DVD.  My kids keep asking me why I want to be the Biggest Loser, they cant seem to wrap their 8 and 6 year old brain around the fact that being a "loser" is a good thing in this instance.

Normally I work out barefoot, doing DVD workouts and such, need to decide if I want to wear my VFF's for this and if I want to keep with my KSOs or grab a pair of MOCs for the workout!

Ok, so morning of Day 1 has come and gone.  I got to drink 1 shake and I did my 10 minute morning cardio workout.  Another Shake at lunch and my wife is meeting me to walk.

Can a fat lad join in this discussion too? Smiley

I'm 210 and I have a ways to go until 150. Smiley I have a mini goal of 180 though.  I'm picking up my Sprints today!
I've been walking for a month, I was doing C25k before that but picked up nasty plantar fasciitis in my right foot! OUCH!
So I'm hoping the VFF's will cure that over time.

Welcome Kittee.


I was getting my lazy butt to the gym & working out, then I went on vacation. I've been back a week and my wife worked a bunch this past week, so I'll be going back to the gym in about 7 hours. I get to weigh myself for the first time after vacation. Then I'll be on the treadmill in my KSO's. I hope I didn't gain too much weight. I guess I'll see.  Huh

Thanks Kittee for the good wishes.


I gained 7 pounds. This guy at work was telling me that the average person gains a pound a day. Since my cruise was 11 days, I'm ahead of the curve.  Grin Nah, I just made my work 7lbs harder, but oh well, it was fun.
