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?

My reactions exactly. Happy Birthday to my boy Andrew who turns 11 today.  There he is at 3 joining me at the finish of my first marathon.  I was about 50 yards from the finish line, spotted him in the crowd and wave and out he shoots to join me to the finish line. Such an awesome memory I will never forget. This is great! The Cove. Barefoot running and gravel paths!? Call it a nice massage on the feet. I never tried or thought about deadlifts when younger. Now at the ripe age of 46 I discovered how awesome they are.  With 3 weeks in I hit 190lbs for 5 reps on my last set. Thanks to my son for the recording.
