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.

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.
