8 mile run in my new Vibram Sprints.

Unfortunally looks like my barefoot running days are done for now, or at least going to be very scarce.  I hope to throw in some barefoot shorter runs during the week, just to keep some kind of conditioning going.  

My early morning run started at 5:30am, 18 degress out,  I did not wear socks with my Vibrams, unfortunately or fortunately I have no room to wears socks with my sprints.  I personally don’t like socks with Vibrams.   It was a great run, average pace 8:33,  by the time i hit mile 8 I did feel some slight coldness to my toes, but nothing major.   It’s very early to be seeing the temps in the teens, it might be a wicked winter.



One thought on “8 mile run in my new Vibram Sprints.

  1. Yeah, it’s shoes for me until spring, too. The temperatures have plummeted recently.

My reactions exactly. Happy Birthday to my boy Andrew who turns 11 today.  There he is at 3 joining me at the finish of my first marathon.  I was about 50 yards from the finish line, spotted him in the crowd and wave and out he shoots to join me to the finish line. Such an awesome memory I will never forget. This is great! The Cove. Barefoot running and gravel paths!? Call it a nice massage on the feet. I never tried or thought about deadlifts when younger. Now at the ripe age of 46 I discovered how awesome they are.  With 3 weeks in I hit 190lbs for 5 reps on my last set. Thanks to my son for the recording.
