I did a 4 kilometres barefoot run in the morning. Encountered a swan who wouldn’t let us pass. When I approached it with lifted arms to try to scare it off it just hizzed and lifted its wings in return. We chose a detour through the nettles.
In the afternoon I went out for a long run which turned out to be 18 kilometres whereof 13 where done barefoot. I experimented with chalk to keep my feet from cracking. It worked well.
At kilometre 13 my soles where quite tender and I was glad to have packed my Fivefingers in my rucksack. It was a great comeback and the runs were great.
