Another bare 15 miler.

I ran a 15 miler barefoot with a time of 2:15:50.    My son had his first T-Ball practice at 9:00am, which was an hour then around 11:30am I hit the road for my run.  I realized the only thing I ate when I woke up was a banana, and a few bites of a left over cliff bar that my son didn’t finish.   I brought two GU’s (Vanilla Bean, the only kind of like) with me and a hand held with 20oz of water.  I never felt a loss of energy or crashing at all.  During training runs I purposely try to run on a empty stomach anyways.

I also tested out the UltrAspire Spry running vest I bought a few weeks ago, which I was very pleased with.  The vest has a perfect pouch for a smart phone, mp3 player, food, gels, etc.  I have a iPhone with case on it, it is kind of bulky and was worried that it bottom pouch would flop around, but with a few adjustments on the vest, there wasn’t any floppage issues.  It even has a big pouch on the back, a pair of Vibrams or Huaraches can slide into, not sure if they would bounce out while running, I will have to test that out at some point.  Overall very pleased with the vest.

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.
