18 mile barefoot run in the rain.

Time:  2:40:48     Pace: 8:56     Temp: 48 degrees.

This was a great run and a huge confidence builder, not only was it my longest barefoot run to date, but I ran it in pouring rain.  I started this run around 12:30pm, and the whole morning it was non-stop pouring rain.   My mind was set to do this barefoot, plus I didn’t want to back down from my personal challenge, but I did, for about 5 minutes.    I started the run in my Vibram sprints, after 5 minutes I realized I can do this barefoot, stopped and took them off.  My parents house is about 1.5 miles from my place, I wanted to dump the sprints, so I ran to my parents house first, and dropped them off in their mailbox.  It was super quick, I called them when I got home and they didn’t even realize I was there.

I had one funny incident that I never thought would happen, and when I did hear from other people I thought they were full of it.  But around mile 16, this lady pulls up to me and asks if I want a ride somewhere because I didn’t have any shoes.  I told her no thank you, I do this on purpose, she drove off shaking her head, I never thought that would happen for some reason, just seems so fake or unreal when you hear it.

My feet have a nice tingle going on as I type this, but came away with not one blemish or blister.

  1. 0 on a treadmill as well as compared it to my normal Asics running shoes.
    It lets you record your pace, distance and run route using your i – Phone’s GPS and accelerometer.

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.

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.
