Day 30 - Fiyah!

My very own BFR Fiyah! T-Shirt!
I finally got my BFR Fiyah! t-shirt this week! Spreadshirt.com did an amazing job. The quality and fit of the shirt rocks and the Flex Print printing is really cool. I bought the Women's Slim Fit Cotton Tee in a medium size. Its a very soft cotton and not scratchy at all. I'm really happy with the results and it has washed well so far. I will definitely be printing more designs through them in the future.

Did another short barefoot run today which ended up being close to 4 miles. It was cold and overcast, but man, it felt good. After the initial shock of the cold, my feet eventually adjust. They go from stinging to tingling. Its an indescribable feeling. Like running on blunt pins and needles. Ok. So maybe that doesn't sound cool, but for me its heaven. Like I can feel every single nerve receptor. I run on pavement and asphalt mostly. I know there are people who hate that stuff, but I'm starting to really enjoy it. Yeah. I'm a glutton for punishment. I know it. I would love to do more trail running, but I think I had better work on some strength training first. My knee is in recovery mode and I don't want to blow it.
The flex print. Nice and clean.

Speaking of that little bitch, my knee... She fared pretty well on my run today. No angst and no pain. Not even a twinge. She was tight though. I felt the tightness starting up on the bottom of my kneecap towards the end of my run so I backed off and walked. I stretched my leg a bit and the tightness subsided. No heel pain either. Relaxation was key. I tend to stiffen my ankles when I'm running especially when its cold out. So relaxing my ankles when I lift my legs helps. I also tried to keep my cadence up and focused on landing straight under my body. Whatever I did today worked. Success. Fiyah!

  1. Well, I've got the opposite problem from the northern cold, my thermometer just gave me an outside air temp of 45C (113F) man its hot outside you can feel it dry your lungs out by just breathing. You would get more than a tingle in your feet running on the bitumen, probably severe burning.
    Relaxing is everything, if every I feel myself tensing too much when running just let your arms go lose and floppy, that brings you out of that tension.

  3. Will you welcome me to your 'owners of bitchy knees club'?
    I banged my knee a week ago and it is still complaining though less and less every day. Glad to hear yours is behaving better.

  5. The shirt looks great. Glad to hear you are back out there. I need to get out there and run more. I've been using the cold in Ohio as an excuse not to run.

  9. Jen - Let me know how your shirt turns out. I've only ordered two shirts from them so far, but they seem to be pretty high quality and their attention to detail (as far as the printing goes) has been dead on.

  10. I'm liking these shirts more and more. Now I have to decide which one to purchase.

    Glad to hear your recent bfr went well. Keep doing that cross-training too and stay off roofs.

  11. Ken - thanks for the encouragement, man. Um. I think you're the one that needs to stay off of roofs though. :-) Let me know how you like the shirt should you decide to buy one.
