A 10 miler – pleasant surprise with conditions

Sunday I ran 10 miles barefoot, this was the first run in double digits since I ran the Hartford Marathon back in October.  I felt good at the start, I locked into a 8:30 pace and held it for the whole run, the last 5 miles are hilly as well.  My time was 1:25:00.   As you can see because of the data I am back to wearing my Garmin. I truly enjoyed running without the Garmin but in all honestly I really like to know how far I am running, or going to run. 

It was very warm compared to the last few weeks, at the start of my run it was 41 degrees with wet roads from raining all night.  I honestly didn’t know how I was going to handle it but with much joy it was extremely pleasant, my feet were constantly warm and comfortable.  The past few weeks I have been running in temperatures averaging anywhere between 30-25 degrees early in the morning without sun.  My conditioning this year has definitely improved even more, when it comes to the cold.   But it’s odd, I can be in house barefoot and at times and my feet can become extremely cold,  I think it’s the lack of movement.  I have very poor circulation during the winter, I am always cold but manage to have some success with low temperature barefoot running, go figure.

Olivia's first go at soccer. When you work right next door to a Crossfit gym, what else to do on break? Happy Easter! Spring running, goodbye winter gear. Just me and my girl. 7.1 mile barefoot run. Time: 103. Pace: 8.57. A little fishing with the boys. Can't stay inside forever on this cold, rainy spring day.
