Day 17: Oh Noes – The Post Run Aftermath

Day 17: Oh Noes – The Post Run Aftermath

by Daniel Dessinger on Sep 02, 2009 11

Yes, the dreaded day is upon us. The aftermath from yesterday’s run. I am such a wuss. But that’s okay! I’m just getting started! I woke up this morning, stood up, and OWWW! Pain! What is this strange sensation in my feet and legs? What is it? Oh, Doctor, tell me, am I going to […]

Day 16: My First Run

by Daniel Dessinger on Sep 01, 2009 1

After a long day at work, I decided to give my Five Fingers another shot at the gym. I work them all day at work without socks for the first time. I’d been avoiding that, since you end up with stinky shoes that need to be washed when you don’t use the socks. But, like […]

Day 9: Taking a Day Off

Day 9: Taking a Day Off

by Daniel Dessinger on Aug 25, 2009 1

It’s been 8 days. My feet feel a little blistery, so I’m taking a day off from my VFF Classics. I’m putting on my Diesel Leroys again. They’re flat soled and not very cushioned, but they feel luxurious in comparison. Of course, that means I’m not getting the workout or proper posture either. I’m wondering […]

Day 7: Stinky Toe Socks Means Buy Another Pair

Day 7: Stinky Toe Socks Means Buy Another Pair

by Daniel Dessinger on Aug 23, 2009 2

I probably forgot to mention that I bought a pair of black toed socks when I bought my VFF Classics. They’re Injinji brand. The Luke’s Locker rep told me that some people prefer to wear socks because they keep the shoes from smelling bad as fast. Eventually, the shoes will have to be washed. You […]

Day 6: Just Another Day at the Office

by Daniel Dessinger on Aug 22, 2009 1

Surprise, surprise! No one at work is noticing my feet. Of course, I’m wearing the black Classics, which blend in with baggy jeans better than any of the other color styles. I just kept waiting for someone to stare at my feet and freak out. Mostly I was expecting someone to accuse me of wearing […]

Day 5: A Little Irritated

by Daniel Dessinger on Aug 21, 2009 0

I woke up this morning, and I REALLY didn’t want to put on my Five Fingers. I just wanted some plain old shoes. I wore my Flat soled Diesels to work today instead of my Five Fingers. Since everyone I’d read about gave their feet a break, I decided to do the same.

Day 3: The Ache Begins

Day 3: The Ache Begins

by Daniel Dessinger on Aug 19, 2009 0

I noticed last night that my back was significantly achy all over. The kind of feeling you might have if you helped a neighbor move all their furniture into and out of a Uhaul truck. Today is no different. I ache. I’ve been leaning back all day long in my chair, but the ache is […]

Day 2: Not As Bad As I Expected

Day 2: Not As Bad As I Expected

by Daniel Dessinger on Aug 18, 2009 0

Some people who wear Five Fingers get callouses and sore feet within half an hour. Not me. I’ve been wearing them all day and I haven’t hurt any more than I usually do. Oh, that reminds me. I need to update you on my existing foot pain and one of the key reasons why I […]
