Walked barefoot on the infield for a lap while doing warm ups.

Tried out my new insoles, I also got some gel inserts. Today I just used the insoles though. They felt pretty good, a little soreness in my upper achilles/calf but nothing too bad. I was planning on starting out pretty slow but I just naturally started picking up the pace and just went with it. Miles went




My right achilles/calf was feeling a little sore so I slowed down and ran a couple laps at a slower pace which didn't feel too much better.

Then I took off my shoes and walked a lap or two on the in field and then ran another half mile barefoot at somewhat of a light jog, that felt great. Walked some more after I got to 4 miles. My last mile was a 8:10. Next time will try with both the new insoles and gel inserts and see how that goes.

Beautiful day. Did my barefoot warm up lap and then started running. Did 2 miles on the track and then went out to the fields/abandoned golf course behind the track. Last time I went behind the big hill there was a ton of goose crap so it's been a minute, but this time I made an amazing discovery.

There was a cross country course behind there! There was a lot of course, I ended up getting 3 or 4 miles in back there and then finished up on the track. Also walked some more barefoot to cool down.

Wanted to do more today but I decided it would be prudent not to.
