Coming back

The water left me run today from Sunday. This morning was up at 5:30 a.m. and was out to the conservatory at 6:00 a.m. without a watch, did 3 laps there , and ran 1.5 with a fellow runner, when He joined me We sped up and I felt better when I sped up, was feeling like crap prior to that. In the last 200s increased effort a bit and finished the 5.5k run feeling good. Weather was fine. Those watchless runs are great!

Decent morning run

This morning was up just before 7 a.m. and was out with my father to the conservatory, I did 5 laps there without a watch, so did not take my time but kept tabs on effort, breathing, turnover. Felt pretty good today, its rare because when I last 5-7 days with no running I feel like crap the first day or 2, felt good both days, yesterday and today, today felt much better than yesterday. In the last 2 laps increased effort on the longest hill and in the last 500s I increased effort confortably hard, these runs are a lot of fun without a watch, maybe I ll stay that way permanently. 7.5k untimed. The heat was very strong and the water has not come yet, its a shame! Have a great Sunday

Hot morning run

This morning I woke up for the second time at 7:30 a.m. since I woke up at 4 a.m. not feeling sleepy, then sit for 30 mins and the sleepyness feeling came back so went back to sleep to 7:30 a.m. At 8 a.m. I headed out to the conservatory with a lot of heat, As usual lately I headed out without a watch and just did 8.5k( 6 laps in the conservatory) at a relaxed pace, when I was about to finish the 4th lap, Danilo appeared and We ran together till I had to get out of the conservatory. I felt good, but I was thirsty and the heat affected me, but the effort felt low and the pace good. I ll start training without a watch for a while and see what that freeing experience takes me, I trained that way in 2010 for months I was surprised with the results, the workouts were wild and kind of fartlek, very funny,today´s runners are too consumed by technology that they forget why they do this and the simplicity of it, no equipment needed aside from a pretty good shoes. Running today is a bussiness and tech is empowering of the running with all those garmins and tech equipments, way back people trained without a watch and the repeats they did was from landmarks to landmarks and telephone poles to telephones pole, so its good to remind why We run and think as running as a simple sport rather than a tech rat sport!! Have a great Sunday!

surges run

This morning was up at 5:30 a.m. and was out with my brother and father to the conservatory and did 5 laps , so 7.5k total, shortie run and felt guilty for that at the end, did not wear a watch as lately, and just ran throwing surges everywhere and anytime, but those surges did not affect my brother as he always came back. This was a fun run and I like to run in such a wild way!! Really enjoyed! 7.5k total@untimed!

Yesterday´s redemption: 10k

Today is a public holiday here, so woke up at 6:50 a.m. and wanted to do 10 kms to the mirador , I headed out with my father to the mirador without a watch, We ran together for the first 2 kms, then dropped him and ran the rest of the way solo, dont know the time, but it was a good easy clip. I dont remember the last time I did more than 8.5k, so it was good. The weather was very very hot I almost take off my shirt. I am enjoying running without a watch.

Predawn short run

This morning was up at 5:30 a.m. and was out for my run at 6:10 a.m., got out without my watch and just ran easy for 7.5-8.5k, on the 3rd lap in the conservatory I developed stomach problems that I could not handle, got out to the conservatory to head home, but around the 3 mile mark, stopped to walk, called it a day and just got home to do my thing. I felt really good in the legs and generally, much better than yesterday night. The only problem was the stomach problems, happy to have run something at least. 3 miles, untimed.

Trying to get out the inconsistency train

Monday and Tuesday did not run due to lazyness and leaving it to the afternoon, did not happen both days. Today slept in but I wanted to workout after work so that is what I did, after work went out without a watch to the conservatory and did 4 laps there, its pretty liberating not to worry about splits, need to do more of those, felt like crap, the legs did not respond and I am starting to feel out of shape!! I need to get back to the consistency I was one month ago!! This was run was at 6:45 p.m. and did 6.5k total. Have a great night!

Back on the train

Friday and Saturday off due to lazyness and to avoid running in that strong sun and heat, today enough was enough and was up at 7:00 a.m. woke up right away and went out to the mirador with my father. I ran without a watch and I did 8k relaxed, the pace was easy but the effort was not that easy due to the strong heat, anyway, I am happy to have run today , tomorrow I hope to zap the zero early! Have a great Sunday!8k@untimed

Morning run

Today I am off from work, but I wanted to do the run early since I ll be somewhat busy during the day and dont want nothing to interfere with the run, so I headed out a bit late than normal, at 7:30 a.m. with my father to the conservatory, I dropped him right away, but I saw him twice on every lap since He was doing the laps in the opposite direction, I did 6 laps there with the watch on time of day, some times if felt good, some times I felt really tired, but I was a bit tired when I started. The heat was getting harder and harder, and I was soaking wet at the end, did 8.5k in 50:13. I need to do a workout this week, then next week ll try to resume the 2x week workouts! Have a great day!

Putting the kms early

This morning was up at 5:30 a.m., toyed with the idea of running in the afternoon but its not that easy to find the time since sometimes I leave work way too late,plus I am much more tired after work, so I decided to wake up and just do it, headed out at 6:15 a.m.(less than 12 hours of my last run) to the conservatory and put the watch on time of day,did 6 laps there, feeling easy but tired at the same time, the pace felt slow the wholeway, did 51:56 for 8.5k. I am glad that I did not look at the watch today! Weather was fine, cool breeze! Have a great day!

Zapping the zero

Yesterday I wanted to run in the afternoon but got home pretty hungry , till the point of fainting because of the hunger, skipped the run. Wanted to run this morning but moved to the afternoon risking to not run again, I leave work earlier today so I started my run today at 6:40 p.m. went out to the conservatory without a watch and did 6 laps there, the first few miles were sluggish and experienced a strong side stitch but I could overcome it. It was good to just roll easy and not worry about splits, I need to do runs like this more often since I am obsessing with splits even on easy days, which could be a dangerous game. Too much people in the conservatory, it was unconfortable at times because you just dodged people everytime, but too much energy there and good music too. Weather was decent!! Have a great night! 8.5k total untimed.

Good morning run

This morning slept in a bit because I had to get my father in the airport, I headed out to my run at 9:05 a.m. , a little late than I would have liked. Went out to the conservatory feeling pretty good almost in my normal form, did 6 laps in 6:03,5:59,5:57,5:53,5:49,5:41, and the last 1.2k in 6:00( 8 mins mile), did 49:31, but basically raced the watch at the end to beat the 50 mins, I need a watchless run cuz I am obsessing too much with the lap splits, but I am glad that I am getting back to where I was 1 month ago. so 8.5k@ 9:22 per mile pace. The weather was too hot but I felt strong and good the whole way! Cheers, Cesar

Back again

On Thursday I rested, but decided that enough was enough and yesterday I ran after work at 7:00 p.m. with my brother, felt dead and flat, did 5 laps in the conservatory, so 7.5k total in 46:26. This morning at 6:20 a.m. I headed out to the conservatory and did 6 laps there, felt much better than yesterday night, but not completely good, laps were in over 6 mins for the first 3, then did the last 3 in 5:56,5:52,5:43, felt more tired than I would have liked, did 8.5k in 50:41, felt better than yesterday, need to get back into the swings of things. I have decided to quit dailymile and just log my runs here, that is much time consuming and too much distraction, it would be better to take advantage of another things instead of lasting too much time on that social media,plus I need to stop comparing with other runners and do my own training. Have a great rest of Saturday!
