    @SavageMrsMoose - that's amazing about your half marathon! You inspire me!

    @pupowl - I will post a picture of the puzzle boxes when I'm back home this evening. I'm working from the office right now. Using my lunch hour to catch up on our team chat. :smile:

    Good morning Shape Shifters. Wednesday was a slow and lazy day. I needed a break from the walks, so I didn't do much except for the dishes out of boredom. Yesterday I went for a walk again in the forest. I did not have a good time. There were spider webs in my face the whole time, I tripped and almost fell thanks to a tree root, then I rolled my ankle and later I rammed the top of my foot into the pointy end of a branch. It is bruised and swollen now, but it doesn't hurt. I was feeling a bit sorry for myself at some point lol, but I got over it. :smiley: I did bring my camera, but there was nothing to see. I ran a few errands after my walk and relaxed the rest of the day.
    I blame all the crappy things during my walk on the sandals (well, not the cobwebs). On my barefoot shoes I never have issues with my ankles or tripping. So I am going back to my barefoots afterall! There is a 4km walk I know well that is on pretty soft surfaces almost the entire time and it should be doable with the thin soles of the barefoots. The shorter forest walks are all a mess of small ups and downs with tree roots hiding everywhere so it just doesn't walk very smoothly. I also ordered a second pair of barefoots yesterday. That pair has a thicker sole than my current ones and it is also more suitable for wetter and colder weather so I am looking forward to trying them out. Happy Friday everyone <3

    @pupowl, I'm sorry your walk was so rough yesterday 😔 but glad to hear that it's not painful though. Thoughts and prayers that you won't have any pain at all and you're able to get back at it quickly

    @pupowl - what an experience in the forest, sounds frustrating especially when we go out there for the opposite.

    You may have previously shared this, what barefoot shoes do you use?

    I've done the Vibram toe shoes. And now, I've got the Merrell with the Vibram bottoms. We might have different options due to where we live.
