Continued my experimenting with barefoot
Yesterday I walked barefoot about 1/4 mile and felt fine, so today I walked barefoot for another 1/4 mile on the sidewalk near my house. The concrete sidewalk is smoother than the asphalt on the Parkway, and I'll do my experimenting with barefoot on the sidewalk in my neighborhood. The sky was cloudy during my walk today, and I didn't have to worry about hot concrete. I felt fine during and after my walk.
