60 minute runs.

Did a 60 minute run tonight, without the garmin!  I ran about 7 miles.  The garmin is a cool tool, but the novelty of it is wearing off for me.  It was nice to just leave the house with my good ol’ trusty Timex Ironman watch.  I was looking to see my pace, or what mileage I was at, I was just running.

Anyways it was a wet and rainy run, I love running in the rain, but of the conditions matter.  Tonight it was about 32 degrees and raining, and very nice run.  I wore my sprints, without socks,  stepping some massive puddles, the cold actually felt good on my feet.

I am really digging running for 60 minutes during my weekly runs, it you gives you a lot options, you can do some fartleks, tempo runs, hills, or whatever.   To be honest I am doing neither of those, except for the hills, I live in a somewhat hilly area but not complaining, I love running hills, which technically is your speed work as well.   But running 60 minutes during the weekly runs really gives me a relaxed way of training for this second marathon, I am not tied down to a “cookie cutter” plan, or a slave to be told what to run on what day, and for how long.



One thought on “60 minute runs.

  1. That’s cool. I’ve recently discovered the fun of the Garmin watch, and I’m not ready to let it go, at all. And I have never understood the concept of running in the rain…I think I’ll have to try it sometime.

First snow of the season. My son and I at the finish of the 5 mile Turkey Trot Rusty as a bag of nails, but it’s a good outlet. 5 mile Turkey Trot tradition. 20+ years running this race with my sister. My son made his debut today, fantastic job! Deadlifts. This was my last set of 225lbs, a new PR.
135 x 10 warm up
185 x 6
195 x 7
205 x 6
225 x 5

Had my son Andrew @parkor_boy23 filming and working out with me as well. Finally Optimal Nutrition comes out with a plant based protein.  Most protein powder has a lot of garbage in it, artificial flavors, gluten, dextrin, soy etc. which I try to avoid. I’m not a Vegan/Vegetarian but like a clean supplement. The taste is spot on. Not grainy or “earthy” tasting.  Very happy with this.
#optimumnutrition First cold barefoot run of the season. 25F and the sun was shining, felt good.
#barefootrunning 5am Workout.
I don’t have heat In my garage it was a crisp 32 degrees, but don’t mind.  Some benefits of having a home gym is no travel time, no people, and you can wear your comfies.
This was my last set of benching at 170lbs Fall fun.
