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 sweetie is proud of her snowman she made, or I should say Sammy as the name she gave him. Family skate day. My mom at a young 70 lacing up the skates! My favorite girl.
#mysweetie So intense. Power and strength to the max. Who says dinosaurs don’t exist. Sunday morning 3 mile barefoot run. Blowing the dust off the skins. I like to incorporate deadlifts with my back workout. This was my last set of 240lbs for 6 reps. Seeking that 300lb mark down the road.

215 x 8

It’s starting to warmup in the garage, 25 degrees this morning. “I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” MLK 🔥
