Training log: Friday & Saturday, 10/9 & 10/10/09

Friday, 10/9/09:

Egoscue personal menu #5.

Two-mile walk home.

Pedometer for the day: 7217.

Today was a day off on the training schedule (we're not using this exact schedule, but going based on it and on the schedule in Marathon). Galloway puts a lot of stress on the importance of periodicity (although I don't remember coming across the specific term in his writings yet) — your training needs to include rest days and easy days if you want to maximize your progress and avoid injury.

Saturday, 10/10/09:

Egoscue personal menu #6.

Long run day: 4.7 miles according to the Gmaps Pedometer. Went barefoot, as I'm not entirely happy with the shoes I have available, the Vibram Fivefingers Treks I'm planning to order won't be available until December at the earliest, and I haven't yet ordered a pair of Tarahumara-style huaraches from Barefoot Ted. My feet feel pretty good; the soles felt a little over-frictioned when I got home, but at this point feel mostly fine. Zero discomfort in terms of inside-the-foot pain; it was purely surface.

Pedometer for the day: 9615.

Feeling good. Feeling that yes, this is a feasible goal.
