"Victory belongs to the most persevering."
"What happens if you step in dog poo?" This is what a kid playing football asked me this afternoon when I decided to try out barefoot running on grass. The barefoot running felt good and it's something I will be trying more often in the future.
This morning I ran 12 miles and saw a beautiful sun rise. This pm I ran 8 miles in total which included 8 1/2 mile reps at an average of 2:36 (5.12m/m pace). The first two reps were a couple of second quicker and which I completed barefooted. My shoes felt heavy when I put them back on. I had to put them on because my feet where hurting from the twigs in the grass etc. Hopefully my skin will harden. They feel fine now.
