Week Ending May 31 (13:51)

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.

  1. Nice week Derrick. Guess you're liking the KS0's. I keep checking trails when I'm out thinking - yes I could run this in my FF's. U amd thinking I'll have to start bringing them with me so I can change en Route.

    Camping in the Park, nice. Your lucky.
