Hour long barefoot run, 35 degrees, wet conditions

My feet are much more sensitive running in colder conditions,  I am confident that being exposed to colder conditions more often I can adapt.  Being in footwear for some months then running barefoot at the beginning of March is definitely not enough time.   This will be a future goal for next winter.

But back to this run, wow!   The wet conditions totally changed the dynamics of this run compared to if it was ran in dry conditions.  At one point I almost bailed on this certain road, but relaxed, was breathing deep and got through it. 

Right now my feet feel like there are being tickled with little hot flames.  I have no skin damage, blisters, abrasion, etc. which is good.   I don’t fully know the scientific facts of why the plantar skin is more sensitive in the cold, and especially cold and wet conditions, but should research that.

10 more days until spring.

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.
