    2 good runs this week for me.

    3 miles Tuesday. Found a new concrete path trail around town that I haven't run before. Beautiful trail, mild temperatures, felt great.

    3 miles this morning. Had to get an early start due to days planned activities. Started in the dark at 5:30 am. Could barely see the trail. As a result, possibly, was my first experience with a TINY shard of glass. Didn't even notice it till later in the day. It was so small though not sure if I could've avoided it even in the daylight. Dug it out with at needle and all is good now. Great run. Only passed one other runner. Everyone else was SLEEPING LATE on a Saturday morning. LOL. Also, as I am just a little over 4 months of this barefoot running gig, I've noticed my speed slowly increasing. Started out around 11 min/mile and this morning with this run I broke the 10 min/mile mark and wasn't even trying for speed.

    Until next time...Happy Trails all!

    Busy week for me workwise unfortunately:yawn:, so I only managed to get out at the weekend.
    Headed back to the local parkrun for the 5km regular outing to see if I could improve my time a bit. Managed to trim about 15 seconds off, so I felt quite pleased with myself after a long week after all.
    Got asked by one of the other runners why I was running barefoot. -Explained that if I run in shoes then my knees force me to stop after about 1km, whereas without shoes my body suddenly starts working properly again! I forgot to mention the fact that it's simply a lot more fun than running shod too...;)

    Today was the scheduled day for the Irving 1/2 Marathon.
    There were thunderstorms but the were all off to the west.
    I geared up and started on my way.
    1/2 way there I could see lightning in the area where the race was going to be.
    I stopped and looked on the race website and the race was cancelled.
    On my way back home I could see clear skies and the sunrise.

    As soon as I got home I gathered up Boulder and headed out to try to sneak in a 5 mile run.
    At mile 1.5 lightning and thunder started in our area with light rain. (I decided to cut to a 4 mile)
    At mile 3 the lightning and thunder got closer and it just started to pour rain.:nailbiting:
    By the time we finished we were both soaked.
    I think we both went faster than we have ever gone before!:D

    I ran Tues, Wed, Sat, and Sun. Today was an impromptu long run. I had planned on a long run but things happened and I didn't get out for a run until late, I think I hit the trail around 5:30pm and decided to do my 8 or 9 mile route. When I got back the sun was still higher than expected (still getting used to the longer days!) I said what the heck and kept on going. Lots of blue jays out and a few mallards flew by as well. Ended up with the longest run of the year so far for me, 14 miles. Did it pretty quick too, under 1:50 for 13.1 (I walked the last .9). Sure I race a lot quicker but I usually dont push myself during training and end up with my long runs often in 9+ minute range. Just so full of energy lately.
