RFTS Day 6 – it works!


The Run for the Sun actually works! The weather got better over the last 6 days and today the sun was really out. When I drove to work, it was a cozy 5°C, but when I ran in the afternoon, it was around 25°C and full sunlight.

I ran a little extra through the woods today and tried running bare feet on the trail. It was… challenging. I enjoyed the soft ground very much but there was a lot of gravel and pebbles around and it hurt quite a bit. I never knew that roads can feel that soft afterwards.

So with that extra bit, I ran a total of 3,35 km today, about 1km bare feet. It felt quite easy and I really enjoyed the heat.

I’m so glad, that finally a two weeks of holidays come around. I really messed things up at work today. My head needs those holidays badly. We celebrated at our favorite Chinese restaurant, I slept for nearly two hours in the afternoon and then I was ready to run.

I met a cute little doggy on my way. Unlike many runners, I really like dogs and never encounter any problems. The dog thought that I smelled interesting, maybe because of our three cats and I cuddled him a bit. People were friendly out there today. I think everybody feels good when summer finally arrives around here.

Tomorrow’s going to be my long run for this week. I’ve got to plan a route mostly in the woods, or else I will melt. Maybe I can have a look how „our“ beavers are doing.

So, see you tomorrow!

  1. Interessant, Deine Erfahrungen im Barfußlauf. Ich traue mich das wegen der Sehne nicht mehr, hab das aber gut in Erinnerung (wenn auch meist mit 5-Fingers). Viel Spaß beim heißen Wetter.

    • Ich geh es auch wirklich ganz langsam an, damit nichts überlastet. Ich hab so viel Gutes gehört, dass ich es einfach mal testen wollte. Die 5 Fingers sind mir zu viel Geld für zu wenig Schuh. Es sei denn, ich finde das Barfußlaufen so toll, dass ich mir welche für die kalte Jahreszeit hertue, bevorzuge ich daher das „Original“.
