Wahooo, it’s Friday! And payday! And jeans day!
And it snowed last night which means it’s also “CRAZY COMMUTE” day. Crazy commute day translates into “short post day” because I have to scoot out of the house much earlier.
Before the snow started yesterday, it was 37 degrees outside and I HAD to take advantage of that brief heat wave to try the VFFs OUTSIDE!
One word: awesome!
It was so fun. And while my calves have gotten used to 3 or 4 miles at a time on the treadmill running ‘barefoot style’ – it certainly didn’t translate to the outdoor run. My calves are definitely making themselves known today, and I only did 2.7 hilly miles! I figure that I will follow a 10% rule with my barefoot running the same way that I do for marathon training: only add 10% per week for safe progression.
I didn’t hit any painful pebbles so that was good. It was like running a small obstacle course – you definitely keep an eye on where you are stepping next when you wear these. You are much more “present” to the run. I’m totally digging these.
My workout Wednesday was 40 minutes of Iron Yoga.
I’ll share some of the fun eats from Wednesday and Thursday before I have to skeedaddle:
Are you hungry yet? Regular FitFeat readers will know exactly what each of those things are! My usual suspects!
Well friends, I’m off to lift some weights, then partake in some rush hour stop-n-go. Have a FANTASTIC FRIDAY! Tomorrow is my longest run yet: 14. Can’t wait!
