Another solid run – Signed up for a 5k

I ran almost 6 miles barefoot yesterday.  Beautiful day, got off work early and started the run at 1:00. 50 degrees and sunny.  I still have some soreness on top of the foot when I run, but feel really good being back out there with some significant runs.  I want to do a 10 miler this weekend, my mind say yes the foot says no.  That is fine I feel blessed just to be out there running again.

I signed up for a 5k as well, which is the next week.  I think the last time I ran a 5k  I was 11 years old.  I have no idea how to approach it, but the goal is to have fun with it.   A local pizza joint is sponsoring it so it will be pizza and beer for the post race events!

  1. I say, follow the foot. There is nothing more frustrating than injury. I have a 10k tomorrow. I hope I won’t become road kill (as in, dead on the road, as opposed to being passed). Enjoy your 5!

First snow of the season. My son and I at the finish of the 5 mile Turkey Trot Rusty as a bag of nails, but it’s a good outlet. 5 mile Turkey Trot tradition. 20+ years running this race with my sister. My son made his debut today, fantastic job! Deadlifts. This was my last set of 225lbs, a new PR.
135 x 10 warm up
185 x 6
195 x 7
205 x 6
225 x 5

Had my son Andrew @parkor_boy23 filming and working out with me as well. Finally Optimal Nutrition comes out with a plant based protein.  Most protein powder has a lot of garbage in it, artificial flavors, gluten, dextrin, soy etc. which I try to avoid. I’m not a Vegan/Vegetarian but like a clean supplement. The taste is spot on. Not grainy or “earthy” tasting.  Very happy with this.
#optimumnutrition First cold barefoot run of the season. 25F and the sun was shining, felt good.

I don’t have heat In my garage it was a crisp 32 degrees, but don’t mind.  Some benefits of having a home gym is no travel time, no people, and you can wear your comfies.
This was my last set of benching at 170lbs Fall fun.
