Barefoot Sprinting!

Barefoot sprinting!
I have to say, barefoot sprinting, in the yard here, takes me back to the way I felt when I was 8-10 years of age better than anything!  There is just something so childlike, so inherently joyous about running as fast as you can, or nearly so, just for the sheer fun of it.  Plus, you realize how great it feels on your feet, as you pass over grass, pine needles, dry crackling leaves, and then back to grass again...we are meant to feel all of those sensations!

First I did my basement workout, where I do varieties of free squats (no weights), interspersed with leg raises, pushups, hyperextensions, chins and dips.  Then, "aerobic isometrics", where I slowly do chins, then dips and military presses, assisted by my legs just enough to make me able to slowly move for a minute or so...  VERY effective!  Then, I finish up outside with the barefoot sprinting, no shirt on, for maximum vitamin D!  I really feel great right now- AND, I have a chicken and sweet potato fries on the grill.  Life is good!www.paleojay.com
