Pickard Fartlek

21 min. w/u (2.5-3 miles)
5x2 mins. on/3 mins. off
~3 mile c/d incl. 1 mile barefoot and 2x100m barefoot strides
Total: 9-9.5 miles

I put in a solid fartlek effort this morning while Jordan and Scotty tempoed. After that we trotted over to the track so they could do some three hundos. Naturally I opted to jog barefoot in the grass and stride it out while they took care of the really difficult stuff. I'm really enjoying the barefoot running and I definitely think it's strengthening my feet and lower legs. Which is a relief, because my man calves weren't quite massive enough already.
