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.

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 🔥
