My barefoot running is still progressing. Even as the temperatures are dropping with the leaves, my feet have so far kept themselves warm. I've kept my runs between 2-4 miles no more than every other day. I've got a Turkey Trot coming up on Thanksgiving and the low temp for that day is the mid-30s. We'll see how that goes. I may be carrying some socks with me.
Health-wise, this is the ideal time for me to start slowly and build up my feet to the task. Last year, my doctor laid it all out for me: my blood sugar was too low, my adrenals and cortisol were shot. He concluded with, "You must feel like crap." Turns out he was right. So my diet is now free of all grains, gluten, and sugar (except fruit) along with increased animal proteins and fat (basically a paleo diet). I feel radically better.
In retrospect, I think my low blood sugar, carb-loading, and long distance running was a perfect recipe for making life miserable for me. So I'm taking a while to let my body adjust to burning fat for fuel instead of sugar. My abbreviated running is perfect for taking up barefooting. My strength training has gone from non-existent to every four days.
