1 minute rest

You wouldn't say that if I posted my reps!
5/27/11. Eight cycles of two minutes running plus one minute walking followed by three cycles of alternating running and walking for one minute each.
I wore my normal running shoes. While I suffered some calf pain, it was not debilitating. I do not know what this mean. Am I getting better? Is the problem the minimal shoes? I can't make a conclusion.
You may need time to adjust. Doing plyometrics on top of switching your running style is a big change IMO.
ETA: That said, some people simply don't like minimal shoes. They aren't right for everyone.
I'm gonna give it more time. I have a 5k in a month so I will train in both normal shoes and minimals.
5/28/11 thirty second work intervals thirty second rest for five sets each of:
Lunges 95 pounds
Press 95 pounds
Bent rows 95 pounds
Lunges became bodyweight lingoes. Some muscle in my left leg objected to weighted lunges. Press became a push press. Sprints slowed to jogs.
5/29/11 9 cycles of two minutes running plus one minute walking followed by 2 cycles of alternating running and walking for one minute each.
Used normal running shoes and experienced no lower leg pain.
5/30/11. Holiday fun!!! Carry, Run, and Press in 23:47
I will do this again on July Fourth.
6/2/11. Ten cycles of two minutes running and one minute walking
Wore regular running shoes and no calf pain.
6/3/11. Unknown period of walking and jogging in my minimal shoes. I do know that I jogged the uphills for a total of 4.5 minutes. At the end I jogged 5.5 minutes continuously to get a total of 10 minutes of jogging in. I concentrated on mid foot to ball of foot strikes. My calfs feel fine.
6/4/11. 5 rounds of 30 seconds of dlx225, bw dips, bw inverted row, sit-ups, jump rope, jumping jacks with 30 seconds rest between exercises and one minute rest between rounds.

Too hot and humid in my gym. Didn't make it past two rounds of jump rope. I suck!

6/13/11 minimum shoe day. Ten minutes of slow jogging twenty minutes of walking. Calf pain returned.
