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.

Heading home during my run and I see this guy standing in the middle of the road with a tripod and camera. This was about as random as you can get. Having fun on my nephews drum kit. My Crew. Snow run. A little Sunday road trip. The human flag.  This a move that if you stop doing it it becomes more difficult to perform. Muddy trail run.
#shammasandals Another past time hobby of mine.  This unusually warm weather wants me to dust off the longboard. A quick KB circuit. Hits the cardio as well as everything else. 50lb KB

3 Rounds as quick as possible.
2 - windmills
5 - rack squats
6 - snatches
On both right and left sides. Outside kettle bell drills. One arm snatches with a 50lb kettle bell.
