20K Road Race

I ran a 20k road race on Sunday 2/12/2012.  It was a good way to kick off my training for the 50K, and start running long again.   This 20k was the first time I ran in the double digits since September 2011, it felt good great as well.   I wasn’t out there for time or to race it all, just out for a nice long run, I came in at 1:48:23.  It was 18 degrees at the start and windy,  I wore my Runamoc Dash Lites without socks and had no issues.  During the waiting period for the start my toes were cold, but after 10 minutes of running they warmed up and felt great throughout the run.   These shoes are great, but nothing beats running barefoot.  Overall it was a good week of running, I got in 30 miles for the week.

On a side note I read a post today by Barefoot Rick on his facebook page that he ran 6 miles in 3 inches of snow, barefoot.  His tolerance is amazing,  must be a great feeling to never have to rely on footwear to run.   He inspires me when it comes to winter barefoot running.

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.
#barefootrunning 5am Workout.
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.
