Check these out!

This happen on January 20th, 2010

Woke up at 5:15am today for a 6 mile run. I decided to go barefoot, my last barefoot run was Dec. 31st. The temperature was 32 degrees.  The roads in my area looked fine, until I started running more then realized some streets were covered in a sheet of ice, and wet as well.  My feet were feeling fine, so I continued on. I get home from the run come inside, feet look okay until I hit the shower. Then in a span of 30 seconds these massive blisters formed.  The good thing it wasn’t frost bite.  But looking back, because of the cold conditions,  the ice, and wetness, I was losing my form which caused me to push off more, instead of lifting the feet which resulted in friction burns.  It’s odd because I only got blisters on one foot.

I was back running within 7 days with no scarring or extra sensitive to those areas.

  1. I have noticed that when it is cold my feet get abraded more. I tense up (unless I think about it), and, like you said, push off more.

Ran the Fairfield CT half marathon this morning. Came in with a time off 1:50:12.  This  was my 8th consecutive year running this race, and barefoot. My training was super light. Maybe 12-15 miles per week with no speed training, or fancy workouts, all runs were slow. I started lifting weights again, and noticed a big difference with running. The weight training is what pulled me through. The best snack/protein bar out there. Definitely no BS.

Street Art. Friday evening at the beach. My little sweetie is growing up.  We were stuck in traffic and I snapped a quick picture of her and it's crazy to notice the changes of your children at certain points.
