2.6 miles in 50 minutes, walking on the pavement (US: sidewalk). Up a steep hill, then a mile of flat, then back the same way. My lower legs and feet are now tingling nicely. At one point I ran about 20 yards: it felt comfortable.

EDIT (12 hours later): After sitting for about an hour following the walk, the leg muscles were stiff. A good sign, I think. Even this morning, I was aware that I'd been exercising those muscle groups. Incidentally, the walk was in the KSOs. If the weather is favourable, I'll probably repeat it this evening -- the sunset over the West Pennine Moors was colourful.

I have just finished a nearly 9km trail barefoot run (with a bit of walking and sprinting in a forest - Fartlek training, credit goes to Jason from BF running uni. http://barefootrunninguniversity.com/2012/06/10/the-long-fartlek-another-option-for-ultramarathon-training/).

I did some downhill trail sprints, using a Ken Bobs Saxton technique (I've read about it in his book) and some tips from Natural Running Centre (from a YT video) and those moments of my today's run will for sure be unforgettable! The speed, the wind... what I only had to do, was as simple as letting my body do the whole work, without me disturbing its primal nature movement!

The trail was awesome - muddy and very hard because of the rain that was raining for 3 day (today it is sunny Saturday).

Have a great weekend!

oh I am so jealous! I miss roller coasters so much. Haven't been to an amusement park in so long. The closest one is lagoon in salt lake which is about 5 hours.

Tasty!   Cheesy

My first thought was "When are McRibs coming back?"

Invasive species just taste better.  Smiley

Yesterday I wore my new Komodosports when I played disc golf for the first time.  The whole experience would have been awesome even if it hadn't happened in gorgeous northern California where I'm visiting my brother.  The course was 18 holes in a redwood grove behind Humboltd State University, where he's a student. It'll definitely be hard for future courses I play on to compare.  The redwood groves are probably my favorite places in the world, and it was pretty damn cool to try a fun new sport that's basically hiking with random intervals of throwing things. I'll be playing again before I leave and I'll try to get some pictures.

I spent the day painting my deck rails.  I was in my Classics.  Needless to say, I have some interesting tan lines today.

Today I took my dog to a lake for a swim. I decided to get rid of my shoes to get in the (undeep) water. On my way back to the car, I didn't put my shoes back on but enjoyed the sand, the feeling of walking IN the woods. I'm wearing my VFF the whole day, every day, but walking around outside barefoot is new... and I liked it!  Smiley

This is from yesterday....
The day started with me dropping off my pressure washer at my moms before heading on a hiking day trip.  I was walking out to our Land Rover and an older gent walked up and asked directions.  I continued to the Rover where the family was.  The guy started coming back towards the passenger side as I was getting in saying, "Sir, sir, I just have one more question".  As I'm "not" answering his questions, I started the Rover and started backing up.  A van with blacked out windows backs up from down the street blocking me in.  All I can think is we are being robbed and of all times, neither my wife or I are carrying our pistols....  A latino guy gets out of the van asking me what's my name, repeating I said what's your name, show me your ID.  I reach for my ID and they both "stand down"...  Quickly flash their US Marshals badge and said that they are tracking a fugitive driving a LR just like mine and are off and gone quicker than they came....

Last Sunday, I stood on the side of the road baking my feet on the hot tarmac in my Stormy Sea Classics while my boyfriend was helping the paramedics, police and firefighters free an 84 year old woman from turned over car. She had had an accident seconds before we drove by, BF is a cop and a first respondant, so...
