Cushioned Fivefingers

The only problem with VFFs is that sometimes after 2 hours of running the balls of my feet start to hurt. Here is the solution I used to keep the balls of feet pain free for 20 miles of running last week.

Last Wednesday I decided to head out for a 20 mile run. I have not ran in shoes other than Vibram Fivefingers since October and didn’t want to go back to my other shoes if I could help it.

For this you need the Komodosport version of the Fivefingers. Carefully remove the Komodosport insole. It is glued down near the ball of the shoe, be careful not to rip it out, just slowly work the glue away from the insole. Once you get it out, position the ball of foot cushion just behind the metatarsal heads. You don’t want the cushions to sit directly under the metatarsal heads, but rather just behind them. This actually helps to encourage toe splay.

You can see a video on how to position the metatarsal pads below.

Lettuce wraps: 20 min Paleo dinner

Here is an easy paleo meal you can whip up in less than 30 minutes. This meal is not 100% paleo, but it is pretty close. Two of the non-paleo items are Kerry Gold grass fed cheese to top the lettuce wraps, and grass fed Ghee that I cooked the free range chicken in.
Here’s all you need: a protien source; free range chicken, beef, lamb. Whatever veggies you have available will work for toppings. Add a sweat potato if you need some carbs. Top with bacon, grass fed cheese, homemade mayo, hot sauce.

  1. Cook free range chicken, venison or beef in grass feed butter
  2. Put a starchy tuber such as sweet potato in microwave for 5 min. Remove skin and cut into cubes when cooled slightly
  3. Cut up tomatoes or other veggies
  4. Use outer lettuce leaf as a wrap
  5. Top with homemade mayo, bacon, grass fed cheese or hot sauce
