Passed the 2000 barefoot running mark.

I ran 3 hours barefoot this morning, for 17 miles, I was hoping for 20 but was just dead tired.  I woke up at 5:15am, and was on the road right at 5:30, got home in time to get to my son’s t-ball practice and game. Thanks to my wife Erika for waking up early and getting the kids ready for practice.

I didn’t eat before this run and did feel the lack of energy, I brought two GU’s with me, and munched on a cliff bar here and there, but I got it done.   A cool thing is I passed the 2000 mile marker for barefoot miles only. (I don’t record minimal shoe miles).    This was my last long run, I will do a two week taper, then ready, or hope to be ready to run the 50k on May 27th.

  1. Hi BG,

    I just started BF. Got into MS with the Merrell TG, and loved it so much, that after reading a few books, and watching and listening to everything out there – well decided to give it a try. I am going slow, as I have gleamed from all reads etc that the time frame for distance injury free is just that. Enjoying the feel, and newfound run.
    Great blog, keep up the good work.

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.
