week of 18 January
Total: 61.9 in 11 runs
Year run total: 34 in 24 days
Over 60 miles and my longest run was 9.0. With 11 runs it feels like cheating.
On the barefoot experiment, it's not going well but not perfect. Mr. Tweaky (my knee) still likes to tweak, especially in the first few minutes. I have to work up very, very slowly to keep him at bay and slow down gradually as well. This isn't any different than outside in shoes.
I've really been concentrating on my form and it's forced me to pick up the pace (and effort) a little. It doesn't seem like I can't run as slowly when trying to run tall, make circles, etc.
I ran in Dayton on Thursday morning on a path cover in lots of black ice and a good bit of win. Very tedious.
