Barefoot running, Week 2: No pain, no gain

So far, so good with the running program.    In the first week I experienced only mild discomfort in my feet and calves, however I can tell  I’m definitely giving my lower legs a strong workout.     Yesterday I started my 2nd week of the couch to 5k regimen, running 2 minutes on, 1 minute off.   I ran closer to 40 minutes than the 30 minutes recommended and I paid for it with blisters near my pinky toes from my Vibram shoes.   My calves were also complaining a lot.    For my next run I’ll scale back.
