I've heard alot about how barefoot and minimalist running can help to strenghten the feet and lower legs making a runner much less injury prone and can in effect "fix" biomechanical problems.
I've recently bought a pair of vivobarefoot neo 2s which I got at a knock down price. I want to start barefoot running but it's not appropriate for me just now as I'm currently running 30 miles + per week in training for the great north run so I can't do the slow transition into barefoot running at the moment.
As a compromise I'm thinking that walking to and from work (approx 3 miles per day) could be a good way to start towards the transition and might also give me some biomechanical and strength benefits.
Would I get any benefits from this our would it be a pointless exercise?
