15 miles – Barefoot

Considering I got no sleep on saturday night, and my mind is tremendously overwhelmed this month, my 15 miler sunday morning was pretty good.   My pace was 8:34,  I would like that to be my marathon pace on May 1st, but no sure if I can maintain that, we will see.

As far as being overwhelmed,  I have one more month of school, my last day of classes are May 2nd.  My marathon is May 1st, just worried about the work.   I am 100% that I will lose my job in month or so, my company got bought out, and I feel I have not been helping out the household.  Both my wife and I have been a bit stressed for the last few months.

  I am looking forward to running the marathon, but will be thrilled when it’s over, I know I keep saying that.   I am going away with the family this weekend, so there will be no running, and this is supposed be my last big week of putting some miles in, it won’t happen.

I am going to run my last 20 miler on thursday though, that will be my last long run before the marathon, that is relieving.  As far as tapering I only going to taper for 10 days.  I don’t find it necessary to taper longer, since my training has been low mileage.

  1. I’m jealous of your 15 miler. I haven’t gotten past 5.5 miles and recently haven’t been able to run at all. Hoping to get back into the swing of things this week. Sounds like your runs are at least good therapy for your otherwise stressed out life right now. Hang in there. I look forward to reading about your marathon. Maybe one day I will be able to do that too. Are you going to do it all barefoot?

    • Hi there, you will get there, don’t worry about that. Yes I plan on doing the marathon barefoot, should be interesting not knowing what the terrain of the course it like, but I did email the race coordinator asking and he said it’s all pavement, what kind of pavement is a different story. Looking forward to it.

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.
