    I switched to barefoot running (vibram 5-fingers) last year, and have been really happy with how it has built my leg strength much better than my old heal strike running style.

    I started out this summer doing alot of running (about 25 miles a week), and walking with a pack one day a week. The beginning of this month I bumped up my walking w/pack to 8 miles twice a week, and biking (mountain or road) 20 miles, 3 days a week.

    Wow, I needed this thread. Thanks for the wakeup call.

    I've been working 16 hour days 5 days a week for months now so almost no time or energy to work out and high carb food is convenient. Add in poor sleep and it's a spiral. I am really paying for it with lower energy and extra pounds.

    No time like today to get back on the right track.

    Thanks, Big Sky.

    Made it through the first day, had to put up with feeling down and irritable most of the day but that will get easier as my blood sugar finds its level. Changing the diet is definitely the hardest part for someone used to a lot of carbs and sweet snacks. In the end I should have a lot more energy.

    Just got revenge on my nemesis - the "Filthy Fifty". Crossfit workout that took me 43 minutes 2 or 3 months ago. Still didn't crush it, but knocked 11:30 off my time yesterday. Made me feel good to see that much progress.

    I've been doing a lot of lifting and trying to turn lifting into cardio. I can't do the distance running like some of you guys. But I did four weeks where I'd do a squat/deadlift supersetted with a clean and super set that with box jumps. That worked pretty well. Also been riding the stationary bike, plus doing sprint intervals for cardio.

    mnhunter - barefoot style is the way to go! I think you'll love it when you get used to it.

    A whole lot of constantly varied, high intensity functional movements. With extra lunges thrown in. Doing my typical Crossfit-type training with more emphasis on metabolic conditioning the later in summer we get. And my buddies and I are throwing in a 400m walking lunge for time every weekend. Except for last weekend, as dihardhunter said, when we hiked 25 miles and gained 6500' with 40-lb packs in a day and a half. Coming down to it now!

    HuntPrep365-

    I do love it. I started with them about a year and a half ago. My longest run on them so far is 9 miles. I have never had joint pain from running, but I could tell a difference in how little shock goes into your joints when you switch to barefoot. When it gets cold I switch to Merrell trail gloves.

    Went to see the Doc yesterday as I've been having some ankle pain in my Lt foot. Pain right in ankle bone under pressure. Started about 3 wks ago and has gotten worse. X rays negative. Diagnosis...Tendonitis. Steroid injection and rest it. Have to change my workout. Feels better this am, but Doc says probably started when I upped my workout to 2 a days about a month ago.

    Its a bitch to get old!!!

    Your doin good CC, I wish my dad (69) was as able as you at 70. I've been reading this tread for a while. You guys are crazy, I just started working out this week, it usually takes me a month in shape. Walking and P-90X works for me, if I start too early I get burned out. I don't really get my "woods" legs under me till a couple of days in the woods climbing the steep stuff and stepping over wind fall, a few days of that and I'm good to go!
