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.
