Snow/Ice Run

I went out for a 6 mile run at 5:15am this morning,  we got slammed  with about 16″ of snow yesterday, this was my first snow/ice run of the year.  The temp was 19 degrees, I wore my Vibram sprints without socks (I  have no room in my sprints to wear socks).   Five fingers are very slippery on ice and snow, the roads were 95% covered in both.   Running on this kind of surface is tricky, it’s a good test on your running form.

Running on dry snow is much better than hitting parts of the road that is wet and slushy, once I got my Vibrams wet it’s pretty much over in the comfort zone.  By mile 4 my toes were definitely freezing and some numbness was starting to settling in.   Overall it was a solid run, much better being outside than inside on a dreadmill.

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.
