New Job, adjusting and lack of running.

I got a new job, my current position is a warehouse associate working for a company called Medisave.   I basically went from 10 years of a corporate atmosphere to manufacturing, from a cushy office atmosphere to a warehouse, from sitting to standing on my feet 8 hours a day.   Seems like I am complaining but I’m not, just trying to describe how physically my body had to adjust to this new atmosphere.  My first week my thighs, and lower back were killing me, but as the days went by the more I started to adjust.  Two weeks in, I am getting into my groove.  It’s a fast paced work environment, good old fashion blue-collar work, which I enjoy.   I work on a concrete floor, and for footwear I have been switching between a pair of Vans, to Softstar Runamoc Dash Lites.    So anyone out there who works on their feet all day,I would to hear what you wear!  I am looking to get something with a bit more padding, but still want a zero heel drop.

So on to the running, or lack of.  I honestly wouldn’t care about not running as much, if I didn’t have a 50k on May 27th.  I think I officially fall into the category of “running an ultra with minimal training”.  I still get a long run in on the weekends, the weekly miles have dwindled.  Oh well, day by day…  My new motto as of lately.

  1. You have a nice base and will be fine come race day. Keep getting in those long runs and just go into the race looking to enjoy yourself. Congrats on the new job and good luck finding some shoes.

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.
