Adventures in weight loss, raising a large family, and barefoot running.

Barefoot running is depressing me.
No running for me so far this week. It is making me so cranky. I am missing my long runs. I miss the freedom to go out and not think about my kids or the things I need to do at home. Seriously as the mom of 7 kids I need a break. Really nothing is better for my mental health than a long slow run. Since beginning to transition to minimalist shoes and barefoot I haven't been able to get those miles in. I have heard you can run part time in your old shoes and sometime in minimalists but I've also heard that the best is to ditch the shoes altogether. So what gives? Can I run a long in my old shoes? It would make me feel so much better to get out and run. So what have you done? When you transition did you switch totally or partly? I'm going nuts!!!
My not so enthusiastic face, much happier when I have run.
