Fitness Running Training

Running Barefoot?

I have been reading about how great barefoot running is. Less prone to injury, we are designed this way, shoes are bad because you run on your heals. Well I decided to give it a go yesterday and see what all the hype is about.

Too cold outside so I was attempting this on the treadmill. The first KM was okay, but by the time I hit 3 km my feet were stinging. So I put the socks and shoes back on to complete my workout. Well it turns out that running barefoot is something you need to take on very slowly. I now have very sore feet with several blisters on the bottom that are going to hinder training for the bext few days.

I think what all these documentaries fail to tell, is that our feet are meant to run on sand, dirt, or grass. They are NOT built for running on synthetic man-made surfaces which act like sand paper on your feet. I am not going to try this again any time soon. Maybe once this years races are behind me I will try to taper into it a little slower.

Bike Brothers Training

My two older brothers and I were fortunate to be allowed to do a training session and photo/video shoot in a hanger with airplanes as our backdrop. A great session, although it was broken up by changing the camera angles for future video production. We had a blast and I now have a ton of good footage.

New Camera Mount

In preparation for my new season of “The Road To Precision” I purchased a new mount for a camera. Now I can easily have a camera looking through the scope with a nice stable image. Actual Photo resolution of the crosshair is pictured in the upper right corner.

I can’t wait to see what kind of video it will capture. Pretty sure it will not stand up to repeated recoil from the .308, but I intend to use it plenty on the .22LR for short range shots. Maybe with some re-enforcement I can make it take the hits from the .308 for better angles during my F-class competitions.

About $40 at Review to come in the future.
