Training program for transitioning to barefoot shoes


Points to consider :

-> Start and finish with 5 Minutes of walking

-> Depending on symptoms and comfort: :

  - Go back 1 workout

  - Repeat the same workout

  - Skip 1 or 2 workouts

-> Run a minimum of 4 times a week and a maximum of 6 times a week

-> Choose a cross-country surface without hills (firm and uneven)

-> Complement training with a suitable transfer if possible (bike, aqua-job)
