16 Miler with some barefoot miles

16 miles, Time: 2:22:57, Pace: 8:57, 31 degrees.

I ran 11 miles in sprints, then at mile 11 took off the footwear and ran the rest of the 5 miles barefoot.    As soon as I took off the footwear I knocked off about 4 minutes for each mile 11 to 16.   It was awesome running barefoot with tons of snow still out, the streets were cleared.  I hit some pretty beat up  gnarly roads, but handled it fine.

I was really surprised that I didn’t lose any conditioning  in the two months that I was in footwear.   As of now I am done with footwear, unless we get another snowstorm or below freezing temps.

  1. It’s been kinda warmer these last couple of days, eh? I’m still not comfy running barefoot though. Not till it’s like 50 or 60 degrees out. I’m a total wuss. LOL

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.
