Ran for 30 minutes at lactate threshold using a mid-forefoot strike the whole way. That’s the furthest I’ve run while maintaining form.

I didn’t run in the Five Fingers but instead went with a beat up, old school pair of New Balances that were in the back of my closet. They have no cushioning to speak of, a nearly flat sole, and even the padded insert is long gone. Although my goal is to run in the Five Fingers all the time, there is no way my feet are strong enough. These old school trainers let me focus on form while also letting me get in enough distance to make for a workout.
