First snow fall and first snow run for 2011

Let me start by saying I already failed at my quest to be an all year seasoned barefoot runner, which is my quest every year, but Mother Nature snaps me back into reality.  I’d rather run than not run, and would rather run outside in the winter than on a rat wheel.  I wore my sprints today.  We had a pretty good snow fall yesterday, and this morning it was slushy, wet, and cold (33 degrees) before my run.  Definitely not ideal weather to even try to run it barefoot.  So I slipped on the sprints (first time in 6 months that I ran in footwear) and hit the road. I don’t wear socks with the sprints, and my feet and toes were fine considering my feet were submerged in slush puddles throughout the run.  I ran 4.5 miles, then took off the sprints once I got close to my house and hit the street, snow, and slush bare for a bit, trust me it wasn’t long.  I can’t totally deprive the soles, and winter conditioning is not a bad thing.

As far as my gimpy left foot, I zoned in on the major problem area, which is the Tibialis Posterior Muscle.  I am doing some self rehab strengthening exercises to hopefully get it stronger.

Olivia's first go at soccer. When you work right next door to a Crossfit gym, what else to do on break? Happy Easter! Spring running, goodbye winter gear. Just me and my girl. 7.1 mile barefoot run. Time: 103. Pace: 8.57. A little fishing with the boys. Can't stay inside forever on this cold, rainy spring day.
#runbarefootintherain Heading home during my run and I see this guy standing in the middle of the road with a tripod and camera. This was about as random as you can get. Having fun on my nephews drum kit.
