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.
