    No. You'll just get into bad habits that will be harder to break. Work on aerobic fitness instead, and toughen up your bare feet.

      No. As Paikea said it is not only a waste of time but will create bad habits. Spend your time working on getting into better aerobic shape and strenghthening your core. Read the xtraining sticky.
