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 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 🔥
