Did three miles this morning after Backpacking all weekend.  I did 38 miles in 3 days in my KSO treks covering rain forests to snow fields, to glacier overlooks.  It was an amazing time.  My legs felt exhausted the last 2 days, so I rested and ran today.  Feeling good again.

Nice Alan!  I just ran 5K myself this morning!! although it was rather muggy this morning here in NJ...but still did well. They held a 5K here at my work campus (I work on a military installation).  My time was only like 26:35 or something for the 3.2mi course - but I wound up coming in 1st place.  I am usually in the top 3 here, but my main competition didn't show today.  I didn't even know it until I was over the line and someone asked my name and wrote my name down in first place.   Shocked  WOO!   Its my first OA win at any race.  Was pretty cool...

welcome back Ardent!

Thanks for the kudos everyone!!

Actually I thought I was running to keep 2nd place, but turns out what I thought was a woman in the distance ahead of me, was a guy with longer hair! OOPS! It was more of what appeared to be capri pants that threw me off than the hair.  Oh well -- when I passed the woman for what I thought was 2nd, initially I thought I was in 1st -- then I saw this other "woman" -- who I tried catching the rest of the race (about 1.5-2miles).  anyway -- it was a fun surprise!!  Smiley

Looking forward to another race this Saturday -- olympic distance tri in MD (diamond in the rough).  Then the following week a sprint tri -- then...the following weekend is the big day....IMLP!!! 16 days.

I was able to run my rugged 2.2 mile route barefoot last night.  I find it very difficult to stop and start back up while barefoot.  It is almost like my brain has time to tell me I am insane for doing this.  The reason I stop is I have a male dog that has to mark his territory every 20 ft.  I usually only allow it twice during the 2.2 mile run.  Sometimes he gets in 3 stops depending on my mood.  I should have time the run with my watch.  I felt I ran it at a semi decent pace, judging by the time that was on the clock when I got back home.  I really need to consider investing in a Garmin 305 or 310.  I know it isn't ideal when running barefoot because it takes away from the balance.  I just want a way to record my progress.  I have created some goals I would like to achieve in the near future, and it would be a lot easier to gage my progress with something a little less cumbersome then say an Iphone.

Didn't feel like running in the rain this morning. Instead, did crunches, curls, wobble board, and stretching. Not quite as good, but...

Did 3 miles this morning.  This weekend is my first long run in a while 10 miles, going to do 5 on trail and 5 in the streets.  Should be a  good time.

This morning, I did my third run back from a stress fracture, 1.5 M.  I've been running in sneakers and on grass because I'm just really scared about setting myself back (even though the fracture has healed, the tissue is still a little bit swollen).  But after 5 minutes today, my left knee and right ankle were hurting, so I tossed my shoes and ran barefoot on the grass for about 3 minutes.  The pain instantly went away (and came back when I put my shoes back on to finish the run).  I also felt so much lighter and less labored.

I'm going to keep wearing the sneakers for most of my running because my #1 concern is getting my mileage up to what I consider "normal," but I'm also going to start working the minimal running back in asap.  I'd forgotten how much better it feels!

My foot feels great - no pain at all, during or after each run - so the hardest thing is going to be taking is very slow and not overdoing the minimal thing like I did last time!
