Noon at gym

Some weights, 5 min. on bike, 2 miles in 15 min. on treadmill with 1 mile of extra incline.  I went from 2% incline to 12% incline adding 2% incline every .05 miles and then came back down.  That really hurt when I did the second one.

Weights, 5 min. on bike, 2 miles in 12:45 on Treadmill.  Supprisingly Tuesdays treadmill hill workout was tougher than todays speed workout.

Afternoon run, windy, cloudy, temp. 43'

After being at the hospital Thursday evening, most of the day Friday and sleeping over Friday night with my daughter, I was glad to get a quick release and get a quick jog in.  Not fair that I can run and she can't even walk.

Noon at gym

Half heartedly lifted some weights, 2 min. of bike.  I felt kinda exhausted until I got on the treadmill and felt the comfort of running.  I first did .25 miles of BFOT then the rest with shoes.  Total of 15 minutes on treadmill.

Jogged over to the park and ran the 1/2 mile track BF.  It was not pleasant, my feet are very soft.  I was running slow and it still hurt.  I then put the shoes back on and enjoyed the rest of the run.

After a half mile I ran then next half BF.  It was much better than Saturday, the river trial is much smoother.  I only run at about a 9 min. mile pace while BF.

Ran a mile then went BF on path for about .6 and then .15 on grass.  My feet don't feel any tougher after three tries.  I'll keep it up for awhile and see what happens.  BFOG is way easy compared to the path.  I feel like I could run 5 miles no problem BFOG.  Now if someone would make a grass path next to the river path I'd be set. 

Maybe those BF type sandles are the way to go.

Some weights, 5 min. on bike, 2 miles on treadmill in 15 min. with .5 miles of BF.  The feet are not sure they like the abuse but the complaints are mild so far.

I think the transition from a heel striker to BF is just as hard on the newly recruited muscles & tendons as the bottom of my feet.  A very slow transition is the key.

I ran with Dallas.  We did an 8 min. mile against the wind and a 7:30 with the wind.  I did the last .5 miles BF.

Some weights, 5 min on bike, 2 miles in 14:30 on treadmill with 1 mile BF.  Increasing the speed and distance going BF gave my second toe a little blister.  My feet are still very whimpy.

Weights, then 2 miles in 14:45 on treadmill with one mile near BF with the invisible running shoe.  I'm going to have to give BF running the weekend off.  The balls of my feet have little bruises on them especially the big toe and little toe. 

I did try my new $20 Huaraches type sandal on the treadmill today and they worked very well, much easier on the surface of the foot.  The BF feeling is close to the same but no worries about pebbles or glass or the rough treadmill track.  Just like going BF there is no cushion so you wont be landing on your heels.

I felt pretty good so I pushed the pace. Maybe the run was inspired by BYU Basketball.

Ran on the Jordan river path.  After two miles I took off the shoes.  I was doing fine until the path changed to very rocky so I put my shoes back on.  I got .6 miles BF.

Last month I got 100 miles in.  I was hoping for 120 miles this month but only managed a little over 60.  To much hospital.
