After a couple of easy days early in the week, it felt good to increase back to normal and get into a groove. Had a good 2:50 run on Thursday, and a great 2hr run with Keith at Frontenac on Saturday.
I have also been very consistent with leg strengthening and basic core stuff with 2-3 quick sessions per week after my runs.
Also, of note was the amount of Barefoot/Five Fingers runs I’ve been putting in lately. I’m now up to 40mins of running in them, usually in the second run of the day, and feeling great. I had a great run with my Five Fingers at Frontenac Park on some pretty rough trail on Saturday afternoon while camping. I wouldn’t want to do a ton of runs on this kind of technical trail, but finding that if I’m careful and watch closely that I can do it comfortably. I got in 2:21 of barefoot/FF running in on the week and felt great.
