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.

My sweetie is proud of her snowman she made, or I should say Sammy as the name she gave him. Family skate day. My mom at a young 70 lacing up the skates! My favorite girl.
#mysweetie So intense. Power and strength to the max. Who says dinosaurs don’t exist. Sunday morning 3 mile barefoot run. Blowing the dust off the skins. I like to incorporate deadlifts with my back workout. This was my last set of 240lbs for 6 reps. Seeking that 300lb mark down the road.

It’s starting to warmup in the garage, 25 degrees this morning. “I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” MLK 🔥
