The soles of my feet were still slightly sore from the barefoot run yesterday. I did my usual trail run except this time I walked all of the uphill. It did not cost me much time which confirmed to me that I may not be reay for the trail HM. ... Read more
4 mile barefoot run on the track
Saturday, July 28, 2012      4 comments

I had hoped to do a 10 K but it turned out that the outside track was too rough, rougher than asphalt, more like a chip-sealed road. So I only did 4 miles even though all the other runners did a 10 K but it kept me from getting any blisters. ... Read more

8 mile long run
Tuesday, July 24, 2012      7 comments

Yesterday's long run was fairly routine. It was a cool day and the temperature in the middle of the day was only in the low 70's. I went on a bike trail, little elevation, smooth asphalt surface, light wind, running at an easy pace. Total r... Read more
