Running Unplugged.

So its been 3 weeks since I ran my 50K, and it seems like it was a year ago for some reason.  Since then I barely have done any running, but totally at peace with it.  Since not running with my Garmin during the 50K, I haven’t touched it since, in fact I completely have stopped counting weekly mileage, and logging in my barefoot miles.  So as the saying goes I am running “unplugged”.   Well not totally, I do wear my everyday trusty Timex Ironman watch, I like to run my time now, and I do need to know when it’s time to come home when I run before work.  I have to be honest and say it was hard not plugging in my runs in runningahead.com, or knowing how many miles I am running,  but after 3 weeks of this it is becoming extremely comfortable and easy.  This is how I used to run 18 years ago.  I am just running for the pure enjoyment of running.

I am running a half marathon this Sunday, I have not ran over 60 minutes since the 50K but that is fine.  Going with the same plan for this race, show up, without a garmin, or a plan, and just run it.

  1. Good luck this weekend! I run “unplugged” as often as possible. Life is too plugged-in now days and people need to disconnect. I wonder what the long term implications will be for society?

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.
