I did TMTS

I have the case of To Much To Soon(To much To Soon). I seem to have a very hard time relaxing when running on cold pavement. Wet pavement is even worse. Because of this my calves are very tight are. Pavement seems to get colder faster than dirt. I ran the Timber Trek trail race in the Amana Colonies on Saturday and had a pace of 39:24 for 4.2 miles and felt great. On Tuesday I did about 4.5 miles and did not feel as good. I did myself in when I when up the giant hill on the loop. I should have just walked up it instead of running. I will have to take a couple of days off and the try the huaraches again.


  1. Make sure your heels touch down on the uphills. It takes a lot of ankle flexibility and a little concentration, but it will help a lot.

  2. Have you heard of the Barefoot Runners Society? We are a community of barefoot/minimalist runners that support each other through the ups and downs of transitioning to BFR. Our website is I would like to send you some info about our "Stomp of Approval" program for your blog. If you are interested, please email me at miker(at)barefootrunners(dot)org. Good running!
