When you’re walking in shoes, the ground is the ground is the ground. Unless it’s a mud puddle. Or a pile of dogshit.
But beyond that, most of us don’t pay too much attention to what we walk on.
But hen you walk/run barefoot, every surface feels different. When I go for barefoot walks or runs, I don’t choose the shortest route, I often choose the wmost varied one. Just to keep it interesting for my feet.
This is just a little list of all the surfaces in my neighborhood. They all feel different, and more importantly, they are all different temperatures. Experience with barefoot running makes you become cognizant of how different surfaces retain heat!
When you are walking tomorrow, take notice of the different surfaces in YOUR neighborhood! Better yet, take off your shoes and try them out!
