Barefoot running in the rain is essential to do.

Just ran 7 barefoot miles in the rain at my lunch break,  this was the third barefoot run in the rain this week.  

And I realized barefoot running in the rain is not only fun, but essential for improving skills, not matter how much experience you have.  I actually don’t like when it’s dry for a long period of time.   It’s like running on smooth concrete for long period of time, what fun is that. You need to challenge yourself once in a while running barefoot. 

At this stage of barefoot running at times I do push off, or “toe off” when it’s dry without any complications.  But when it rains or running in wet conditions,  I need to go back to the basic blue print of emphasizing the foot lift.

My reactions exactly. Happy Birthday to my boy Andrew who turns 11 today.  There he is at 3 joining me at the finish of my first marathon.  I was about 50 yards from the finish line, spotted him in the crowd and wave and out he shoots to join me to the finish line. Such an awesome memory I will never forget. This is great! The Cove. Barefoot running and gravel paths!? Call it a nice massage on the feet. I never tried or thought about deadlifts when younger. Now at the ripe age of 46 I discovered how awesome they are.  With 3 weeks in I hit 190lbs for 5 reps on my last set. Thanks to my son for the recording.
