My Sept run stats and new tracking app

First off, here’s how I did on my first month back barefoot running! Interesting equivalencies produced by my miCoach and dailymile trackers; I have logged the distance the Chunnel travels between England and France and burned the calorie equivalent of 31 donuts (“Mmmm, donuts”) or 12 burgers.

The following is a summary of the weekly time running and pace composition of all my barefoot running in the past month. The individual workouts you can find on my dailymile page.

My distance are still pretty low, averaging at 12 km per week, but that’s just the way it is starting out especially since I’m running exclusively barefoot. My training is going better than expected, not a blister or soreness of any kind!! Amazing what good form does. Keeping it slow and gradual to allow my feet and legs to adapt. Most runs are on easy, mostly smooth, cement sidewalk, an 8 or a 6 on the Barefoot Ken Bobs Surface Texture Scale (10 being the easiest and 1 being the roughest), or on a 5ish, rough, paved trail. My feet are in perfect shape! I should be great for my upcoming 5k (T minus 3 days!).

I’m liking my new tracking application, which I started using in September when I started running again. I’m still using my smartphone to track runs since I still don’t own a proper runners tracking gadget, but the application I use has changed since Adidas bought BiM Active’s software and turned it into miCoach. Unfortunately, as of yet there is still no easy way to share info from miCoach on the blog (no widgets, no RSS feed, nuthin). But, hey, it’s free. I can, however, show you what an example workout of mine looks like.

I would just like to add that a significant part of the success of my training is due in part to the support I get online via dailymile, twitter  and blogs. Check out who I follow, who follows me, dailmile friends and blogroll in sidebar. Thank God for the interwebs.
