Hearing Your Feet

Today’s local run brought with it an increased awareness of my feet.

Specifically, I could not hear them.  I was running virtually silently.

I’ve noticed this phenomenon before—whenever I can hear my footfalls, it generally means that I am struggling to some extent, that the run is not effortless and flowing.

Now, I am not one to monkey with running form, so if I can hear my feet (i.e., the run is a bit labored) I really don’t react to that knowledge other than to hope it’ll get better.  And sometimes it does.
