gloves for my feet - part 2

Posted 01-25-2011 at 04:06 PM by Tinkster

The fivefingers are truly amazing. Reached a stage where
I can wear them for extended periods of time on a daily
basis, doing my walks around town and on bush-walks within
the city on a regular basis.

My feet hate being in "normal shoes", even my extra wide
asics feel unpleasantly tight.

I think my posture has improved, and my muscles (calves
and hamstrings) are now coping well w/ the "unusual exercise".

My passtimes ... b) tramping (No, not loose women. Hiking!)

Posted 01-20-2011 at 11:47 PM by Tinkster

Love the great outdoors, and would spend more time in the bush
or the mountain tops if time-restrictions weren't an issue.

Pretty much spend all of my vacations and the odd weekend
walking with a heavy backpack, and am planning on doing so
this weekend. Weather shouldn't be too atrocious, and it
will make for a good opportunity to test my new tent.

gloves for my feet!!

Posted 01-19-2011 at 07:28 PM by Tinkster

For a week now I've owned a pair of VIBRAM FiveFingers KSO.

After a slow 3 days wearing them around house and garden for short
periods of time I took them for a walk to and from work (including
occasional running) two times this week - granting my feet (and the
shoes) the recommended one day break for novices.

What an amazing feeling - it's like walking barefoot w/o the risk
of cutting your feet on sharp rocks or broken glass.

usual, add milk as

My passtimes ... a) cooking & entertaining

Posted 02-23-2010 at 12:08 PM by Tinkster

I love good food, and - naturally, I think? - love cooking.
Have a few dishes I'd call my signature dishes, and only a
few years ago added baking to the repertoire.

There's a few cakes I quite enjoy making, and sharing with
people, usually taking them into work where they vanish
within 10 minutes to my great delight :}

One of my personal favourites is my Orange-Polenta-Rosemary
cake, the recipe for which I'll post here today; sorry...
