No, the answer is no under certain circumstances. But it is yes under certain circumstances and the body would want to do that.
The last several voyages have pointed to a central Focus being the tangible awareness in the area of the feet of sufficient weight, Force, energy commensurate with the movement of the vehicle at that instant in time. This is proving to be extremely helpful.
Andean several hours of between 10 and 13% grade climb today building from that simple notion of feeling that commensurate energy in the area of the feet evolved into the body finding ways of achieving the equivalent of moving that vehicle forward on tiptoe.
This is worth remembering.
More basic and substantial was the comfort that the body evolved 2 that what it wanted to do was not avoid pressure on the feet by way of relaxation but that salvation was in smoothly applying firm pressure as much of the 180 degrees that's possible as it could. There is definitely a love-hate relationship with this old body between applying force and avoiding it. But misery is a voiding it, gladness is in finding sustainable comfortable ways of applying it.
