Running barefoot or wearing minimalist shoes increases the body’s awareness of the environment and natural movements. Also, less material is used, which means less waste is produced.
Of course, you can also run in minimalist sandals or sneakers or put your shoes back on after a while. Especially in the beginning, the soles of the feet are still very sensitive.
The focus is on learning to run barefoot together slowly. We ran 2 to 4 laps (1 lap of 1.8 km), each person the way it feels better. But you can also run in your pace. It’s not a workout, but a natural-style running encounter.
