19 barefoot miler

I was happy to get a run somewhat near the 20 mile mark this weekend, came close, I am very happy with 19.   Got in 37 barefoot miles this week, happy about that as well.  Next weekend I will do a cut back long run somewhere between the 13-15 range, then the following weekend try to get in a 24 miler, or  20 will do,  two week taper, then ready to run this race.   I just want to run it now!  I wish I can say I’m burnt out from training, but my training has not been your typical all ultra training, but it’s cool.   I’ll tell you one thing, I wouldn’t just wake up one morning and run 19 miles for the hell of it, if I am not training for something.  To be honest it just takes so some much time away from the day, especially time with my kids, they are still young and want me around, for now….

My feet,the body felt really good this morning, felt super tired in the beginning but broke out of that funk.  Honestly I could have easily ran another 5 miles, but had to, and wanted to get home.   I had plans with my son, Andrew, to go to this carnival together, which we did and was a lot of fun.

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.
