First Barefoot run in real rain and also on rough bridal path

As I had mentioned earlier, I had been dying to do for a run in the rain. And then I saw this quick rainy storm heading for Manhattan on weather.com radar. Despite a bit of soreness due to fast race yesterday, I decided to go for the run. Moreover, I decided to run on bridal path (meant as a horse path) which is substantially rougher than the reservoir loop. Funny how one never almost notice this difference in shoes but for barefooter this can make a big difference.

Anyway, the portion of the bridal path with dry water channel and portion regularly used by cops cars was full of these large stones which was kinda painful. Rest wasn't so bad. In fact, I discovered the longest stretch of pristine grass field I have seen in the park just at the north end of bridal path which was just heavenly to run on. After two loops on bridal path, it started raining and I just could not run on it so I moved to reservoir path for my third loop. 

The rain just kept getting harder and the reservoir path turned into a giant channel of water. I tried to avoid it for few minutes but then gave up quickly. It was so much fun running straight through it. It was also fun watching runners with shoes jumping around avoiding water. It was slightly painful but I dont think I got blisters at all. I would do it in a heartbeat again. The rain turned a slow 4miler recovery run into fun 7mile run at 10:30 pace. Mileage for this week now stands at 33mi which is not bad at all. Also having done 4mi on the tough bridal path, I think I am prepared to do part of the 8mi long run next week (with the flyers marathon team) on bridal path. 

BF for 143mi
