2010 runs w/ miles distances

Note first episode of shin splints feb-mar, then a minor flare up at the end of the summer

What I learnt:

  • running exclusively barefoot/with FiveFingers on pavement without rest days=shin splints
  • run on mountain trails=pure chewing satisfaction
  • stretching is stupid
  • I've been underweight most of the year (felt like a new man after gaining 5 lbs)
  • there are hobo campsites in virtually every wooded area


  1. Don't say stupid Daddy!

  2. ha ha, busted by your child. So cute! I'm so glad you mentioned FiveFingers, I've never heard of them before, but they look great. I'm trying to decide if they would be awesome for Parkour, or terrible. I don't know if you're looking for other sites that really do a good job with nutrition and fitness, or if you will consider this stepping on toes. If I'm stepping on toes, sorry, you can just delete the comment, but if you're open to suggestions- my wife and I are really happy with the program we're using through Their system is really easy to use and it does everything. They have 1000's of different recipes to choose from and they help you build a fitness and nutrition plan that suits your goals. Their exercises are all made by a certified personal trainer and come with printable workout cards and details of how the exercises are done. And for the nutrition part they even send you printable daily meal plans and menus, as well as printable daily or weekly grocery lists, which are broken down by the area of the grocery store or supermarket. My wife likes that all the recipes contain 12 ingredients or less, so they are easy enough for even me to cook. I like that there's no fad diets, pills, or required supplements. Again, if I'm not stepping on any toes, I suggest you check them out. They offer a free trial anyway, so there's harm in trying.
