Yeah, it's still muddy at Twin Brook

Apart from when the trails are completely frozen and covered in snow Twin Brook has been muddy for at least the past 2 years. That's just the way it is, and we're okay with that.




Joining Emma and I tonight were, James, Jim, Four, Erik and Nicole. Nice to see that people weren't put off by the rain. It was actually pretty good weather for running, and it's not like we weren't going to get wet anyway.

As is now the standard we did our 5.6 mile loop and then took off our shoes for about 12 minutes of barefoot running around the playing fields. We've been doing this for about a month now and I've been doing a little running in Vibram Five Fingers which is helping to both strengthen my feet and toughen up the skin on the bottom. I find that I'm not bothered so much by running on the short gravel stretches, the grass is much nicer though.
