    Ya I love sandals for most everything, but mud and muck are their kryptonite. I am in the process still of coming up with a sandal design that will work in that stuff, but I'm sure they too will have their own unique flaws.

    Wow, woke up this morning a bit stiff and sore. Mostly in my lower back and upper body, but also a bit in my ankles. I have a buddy that I ran the race with yesterday and out of the 4 different obstacle courses he's ran this year, this was definitely the most difficult one he has done. I think next year we may be doing a team for the tough mudder. That may cut into my running money though as next year there are a couple 50k's I am looking at for my first baby ultra. Anyhow, the vff speeds I used yesterday had plenty of traction for most of the run, but I ran probably 3/4 of the race with my two most outside toes on each foot out of the toe pockets. Once the vffs got wet and muddy and I started hitting into obstacles those toes kept popping out. I tried fixing them the first couple times but they kept popping out so I said to hell with it and just ran like that. I found that running on a ton of gravel was no problem in them, but the sparse gravel hurt like hell. I was also told I am a much better runner and much faster than I give myself credit for. My friends that I ran the race with were pretty impressed which was kind of an ego boost. :)

    Biked an hour each day to get to school.
    Sat- studied and tried to get to bed early but a certain redhead felt the need to text me that she wasn't drunk. Great.

    LOL! You see, I warned him that it was "drunk text" night, cuz there was about to be drinking at my neighbors. Lol! But, I didn't get that drunk, and was kind of sad that I didn't get to "drunk text" him, like usual. So I sent him a "non-drunk" text (before 10 p.m.) -wrongly thinking that was a safe time. Lol! What he does NOT realize is that if I HAD gotten drunk, he would have received like TEN texts between midnight and 5 a.m. So he "should" consider himself lucky! :p

    1.5 miles running barefoot on pavement, with a backward walking warm-up - and a totally freaked out cop circling the block trying to scope out the barefoot backward walker. Lol.

    Total of 5 miles. 4 mile run starting on the east bank near the U in Minneapolis, crossed the Mississippi to the West Bank then back across. At 4 miles I stopped and walked a bit, then ran another mile.

    I agree that there is indeed a synergy. Even with my minimalist approach to strength exercises, I've noticed a significant improvement in my energy! :)

    Ran 15.7 km barefoot. Bike trails I follow are nice, they follow the creek up and down, with lots of twists, between the trees. :)

    Thursday - Unplanned trail race in St Louis with Missouri runner flipngrip, ran it shod in Altra Samsons due to the rocky nature of part of trail sections...around 4 miles total with warming up.

    Saturday - 1 hour gravel running and 1 mile cooldown walk on Katy trail in Missouri...a bit of mid-day heat training in the low 80's plus testing Sockwa G4's...both 2nd toes a tiny bit sore afterwards but pretty good overall.
