None today. Bit of swimming, some weights and static rowing instead.
How many miles did you run today? - Page 685
I ran five miles at my marathon pace and then did six 20 second intervals with two minutes of rest between them. Usually my "rest" between intervals is walking for half of the rest and then a slow jog. Today for some reason I decided I would do 30 lunges between each interval as well. Holy crap did that hurt! I don't know what I was thinking. I guess it just goes to show I need to step up my cross training or something. I must not be in as good of shape as I thought!
Yeah, it's fun, although better on the travelogue than the arguments about barefoot running, which are still raging... I do a bit of barefoot running to keep my technique good, and I run my short races in NB minimal shoes, but in my experience, running longer races barefoot is a recipe for all kinds of unpleasant blisters, cuts and what have you. Basically, you have to be entirely committed to barefoot running and do nothing else so the soles of your feet become like iron, even if you technique is good.
10k (6 miles) tempo today (in shoes!).
