Mudder Training: Day Twelve

Just a quick post.  I woke up and ran 4 miles in my Vibrams (barefoot shoes).

Man, my calves are sore.  Without cushioning, running has become an incredible calf workout (as my calf muscles adjust for the added distance cushioning on the way down – when you wear running shoes, the shoe does this and you muscles aren’t activated, or so I am told).  Followed it all with a freezing cold shower.

A side note: it’s amazing how different my perspective on the day is when it begins with exercise, reading and prayer.
