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!



One thought on “Another solid run – Signed up for a 5k

  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!

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 🔥
