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

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.
