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?

Ran the Fairfield CT half marathon this morning. Came in with a time off 1:50:12.  This  was my 8th consecutive year running this race, and barefoot. My training was super light. Maybe 12-15 miles per week with no speed training, or fancy workouts, all runs were slow. I started lifting weights again, and noticed a big difference with running. The weight training is what pulled me through. The best snack/protein bar out there. Definitely no BS.
