Today I just completed a 20km run with Terra Plana Dopie. The experience was great but the strap is still creating problems for me. Along the run, the strap keep rubbing against my skin resulting in light cuts on my feet.
The “blood stained” area on the strap. So half way down the journey I decided to loosen the strap. I feel more comfortable but the foot bed keeps on giving me the flapping feeling.
Despite all the cuts and abrasions, I have decided to use Dopie for my 2010 Marathon Singapore event.This is because after I started out minimalist shoes I could not go back to cushion shoes also my love for running increased. Each run gives me a new experience because I could feel the ground and when I starts to feel the ground I learn to embrace the environment, this makes my running more enjoyable.
Furthermore, This year the 42km for Marathon Singapore will be totally new experience for me.
2. It is also for me test out Dopie and my love for minimalist shoes.
3. My target is to have a sub 4hrs for my marathon
