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 sweetie is proud of her snowman she made, or I should say Sammy as the name she gave him. Family skate day. My mom at a young 70 lacing up the skates! My favorite girl.
#mysweetie So intense. Power and strength to the max. Who says dinosaurs don’t exist. Sunday morning 3 mile barefoot run. Blowing the dust off the skins. I like to incorporate deadlifts with my back workout. This was my last set of 240lbs for 6 reps. Seeking that 300lb mark down the road.

It’s starting to warmup in the garage, 25 degrees this morning. “I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” MLK 🔥
