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.

Ran the Fairfield CT half marathon this morning. Came in with a time off 1:50:12.  This  was my 8th consecutive year running this race, and barefoot. My training was super light. Maybe 12-15 miles per week with no speed training, or fancy workouts, all runs were slow. I started lifting weights again, and noticed a big difference with running. The weight training is what pulled me through. The best snack/protein bar out there. Definitely no BS.

Street Art. Friday evening at the beach. My little sweetie is growing up.  We were stuck in traffic and I snapped a quick picture of her and it's crazy to notice the changes of your children at certain points.
