14 Miler – January Has Been a Beast

I ran 14 miles on saturday,  we having a serious freeze going on.   It was 15 degrees out when I stared my run,  I wore my KSO’s with the Nu-wool Injinji socks,  this combination is great so far.  The run went really well, I am trying to run my long runs at a slower pace, but always start off to fast, and my pace really takes a significant dip towards the end, I want to be more consistent.

January has been a beast!   I think we have had about 4 snow storms this month alone, the temps have been freezing to the bone, and sickness has been getting the best of me.  My four year old  came down with a stomach bug which just ripped through the rest of the family like the movie “outbreak”.    My weekly mileage has definitely not been up to marathon training standards.   This week I only got in 27 miles, but whatever,  between work, family, and now school starts this week,  I do what I can.   I have two more senior semesters to go, looking at graduation in May, it’s been quite a journey.

  1. January has been downright evil this year. The wool Injinjis have been my savior, except for that time I went out already having cold feet. That kind of idiocy no wool sock can fix.

First snow of the season. My son and I at the finish of the 5 mile Turkey Trot Rusty as a bag of nails, but it’s a good outlet. 5 mile Turkey Trot tradition. 20+ years running this race with my sister. My son made his debut today, fantastic job! Deadlifts. This was my last set of 225lbs, a new PR.
135 x 10 warm up
185 x 6
195 x 7
205 x 6
225 x 5

Had my son Andrew @parkor_boy23 filming and working out with me as well. Finally Optimal Nutrition comes out with a plant based protein.  Most protein powder has a lot of garbage in it, artificial flavors, gluten, dextrin, soy etc. which I try to avoid. I’m not a Vegan/Vegetarian but like a clean supplement. The taste is spot on. Not grainy or “earthy” tasting.  Very happy with this.
#optimumnutrition First cold barefoot run of the season. 25F and the sun was shining, felt good.
#barefootrunning 5am Workout.
I don’t have heat In my garage it was a crisp 32 degrees, but don’t mind.  Some benefits of having a home gym is no travel time, no people, and you can wear your comfies.
This was my last set of benching at 170lbs Fall fun.
