For IBRD virtual running, I did my normal 5 k and took it easy.
This run had pretty much everything. It started off cloudy with a slight cool breeze. Just before my turn around point it started to rain. The rain only lasted a minute or two then the clouds cleared and the sun came out during my return leg.
Garmin stats are 3.10 miles in 27:48 for an avg pace of 8:58. Splits were 9:15, 9:01, 8:40. Training effect was 3.0 with an average HR of 142.
Hope everyone else enjoyed there IBRD run as well.

Virtual International Barefoot Running Day 2021! By Bjorn Foten

Connecting ourselves to the earth, to nature and to our primal selves is an incredibly important act, offering us immense physical and mental health benefits. With the world in turmoil and our overall wellbeing under unaccustomed stress, it’s never been more important to kick off our shoes and get out there (safely and responsibly).
