I need help with transitioning!!!
I have been wearing my Alitzas as my everyday shoes for 5 months now. I'm in them for roughly 14+ a day. I have an office job, but I do take the stairs up and down 11 flights twice a day 4 days a week and I average about 8-10,000 steps a day. Other than bike riding, I haven't been doing any other sort of exercising and definitely no running.
I signed up for a 5K that's in just over 4 weeks. I really want to wear my Vibrams, but I'm trying to figure out if it's going to be possible or not. I ran 1.5 miles two days in a row in them and my calves are KILLING me. I've watched many videos and I'm confident that I'm running properly in them. I thought that because they've been my everyday shoe for some time now, I would transition easier. Maybe that's not the best thinking?
All advice welcome!!
