From one beginning barefooter to the next…

Beware of hot black top streets. They are hotter on your soles than they actually feel. Shorten your run to compensate or bring along some minimalist shoes to throw on when your feet have had enough. Don’t learn the hard way…ouch.

    The answer to running on hot pavement is to learn to run as lightly as possible. Lift your feet quickly and keep your cadence high. Works for me – I run on pavement all the time, at temperatures as high as 36C (97F).

    • You are right Alan and I do believe my cadence is on the low side. We will see when I post my video. Hopefully that will be tonight.
