I ran hills along the power lines today. It was actually kind of fun! Next weeks looks tough compared to this one, but I think I'm ready for it.

I should probably update this on the day I actually ran, but here I am the day after...
Why is barefoot running so hard when you aren't actually barefoot?
I tried taking off my shoes yesterday, but my feet still weren't healed enough to handle the asphalt. I think the bike path has rougher than normal asphalt or something... I walked a little bit without shoes and then put them back on to get down to business. I'm thinking about plasti-dipping some socks or something.

Anyway, the run went pretty good... I ran on the opposite side of the canal this time... The Cape Cod side. I actually got the falling forward feeling by shifting my hips forward and my speed increased significantly, but I couldn't keep them there for the entire run. I think I'm getting better at the proper technique every time I go out, but there is a lot to think about to get the technique down. I can't believe the 3rd week is almost over already!

Started the first run of my third week today. I went barefoot on my last run and I still have blisters from it, so I had my shoes on today. The blisters didn't really bother me too much, but that first interval really sucked. I think I've been reading too much and convinced myself that I was a runner... I forgot that I'm not really in that good of shape yet. By the third one I was smiling though. I really think it's harder to run with shoes on... even these minimalist shoes. I barely even noticed that there was an extra interval this week. It actually worked out better having an even number so I could run the same number of intervals in each direction.
