    My First Sprints

    I've been going primal for a few months now, and I decided I was ready to try my first sprints. I did some stretches and a quick thirty second jog to warm up a bit, and then my neighbors Great Dane showed up!

    This dog is essentially like a miniature horse. He gave me a look like "are you ready to go?" and I took off as fast I as could with Sonic running next to me. I was flying like the wind and was amazed that I could keep up with the horse/dog!

    After running about 3/4 the length of a football field I rested for about a minute and then ran back with Sonic the same distance. It was exhilarating! To my dismay I discovered the water fountain was not working. Next time I will bring a water bottle!

    lol, that's awesome, i gotta start sprinting more, when i first read your post i thought the dog was chasing after you.

If my regimen leads to my death, be it in six days or six months...I will die fullfiled. The outcome is irrelavent so long as i steer towards my fate. If death is to be my prize, i welcome it with open arms."

    i thought the dog was chasing you too... cute! I sprinted once 2 weeks ago.. I think I will tomorrow. The problem is my neighborhood has many twists and turns, is very busy, and the only route is a 1/2 mile long.. i dont know if i can sprint for that long.

    I'm blessed to have a nice and empty track 5 minutes from my house... but not so blessed to have an injured foot at the moment. I miss sprinting. And running with a big dog must be awesome.

    I’m sure you’ve seen it. It’s all over the news,it's Vibram FiveFingers.People are finally beginning to come around to that inconvenient truth about our feet, that dirty little secret that shoe companies would prefer to keep under wraps: barefoot is better.When you wear Vibram shoes,you will feel you are barefoot.
    There has been media coverage of the barefoot trend in the past, mostly intermittent, in running magazines and always taking a patronizing tone. It follows the same formula: more idle speculation on a bizarre fad that a select few crazies are promoting, with plenty of “balance” from stuffy foot specialists expressing doubt that the inherently fragile, gentle human foot could ever withstand the rigors of walking unshod without “serious injury,” than any serious consideration of the merits. But now we’ve got a nice,cheap Vibram juicy study to hang our hats (or our shoes) on, and media outlets are falling over themselves to get the scoop.

    Oh, and yes, I was barefoot. ;-) I try to go without my Vibrams whenever and wherever possible.

    love sprinting! I, on occasion, bring the dog out with me. His nipping at my arse during the run is really motivating to run a little faster!
    I grok, therefore I am.

    I'm starting sprinting this week too...minus the horse! My brother has a huge Dane, 180 lbs. I think my lab would get distracted if I brought him, Dane are more focused that way! I can't wait to feel that exhiliration after the sprinting!

    I'm going to go to a local soccer field to start and go barefoot, I need to get myself to the shoe place for a Vibrams fitting soon.
    Went Primal: 3/28/2010 - 43 lbs lost!
    Over 15 inches gone!
