Barefoot Running - Pushing The Envelope
Since I stayed home today, I took the opportunity to get a nice run in. From my house, going along Farwell and Hastings and then down Mill Road to the bottom of the hill is 5k. I wore shoes on the way there and then removed them for the trip back. Since the first half warmed me up so well, the cold--mid to high 30's depending on which bank's sign you believe--didn't bother my feet. And I finished the 10k in 48 minutes which is about a 7:45 mile pace. My soles have a couple of tender spots which means my form still needs improvement, but I thought I did well for that distance.
