This morning I woke up at 7 something and headed out just before 8 a.m. by my own, but saw my father out there. Got to the conservatory and did 6 laps, 3 counterclockwise and 3 laps clockwise, In the last 3 laps sprinted the long uphill to test the system. Felt good overall and ran without a watch, much more funny that way, no pressure!!! 8.5k total without a watch.

Yesterday skipped the run. This morning was up at 5:30 a.m. and headed out at 6:20 a.m. with my brother to the conservatory, did 8.5k, 6 laps in the conservatorty without a watch,but as I ran with my brother He took , the time, I knew my time for the first time in a month, 47:09 for 8.5k. I felt good some times, but We would throw surges anywhere and that made the run not so easy, at the end I could stabilitate myself and was running with no problem. Happy to have run with my bro, I thought that He would gapped me right away, but He is not in that great shape !! Have a great night!

Yesterday did not run, wanted to run in the afternoon but could not. Today is a public holiday here so I slept in till 7:00 a.m., and headed out just before 8 a.m. , headed out without a watch to the conservatory and did 3 laps counterclock wise and 3 laps clock wise to vary things a bit. Felt a bit tired and out of shape but I am happy that I have estabilished my minimum distance to 8.5k, need to increase that if I want to jump in a couple of races. in the last 1.5 laps I rised the effort to stimulate the system. Ran easy from the conservatory to home. 8.5k watchless. I really enjoy these runs. Have a great Tuesday!

This morning I went out at 7 a.m. with my father to the conservatory without a watch and We did 6 laps together, I did not accelerate today except for the last 100s.

Yesterday Wednesday and Thursday. Yesterday I planned my run to the afternoon, but life got in the way. Today I am off from work and headed out to the conservatory to do my bread and butter route and distance, 8.5k(6 laps in the conservatory). Ran without a watch as usual for the past month. When I started I felt pretty strong and good, but as soon as I started the conservatory felt like crap the rest of the way, I finished the run with my heart, not with the legs. The legs just wanted to stop and rest. Good mental workout! Have a great Friday! 8.5k without a watch.

Did 6 laps without a watch for a total of 8.5k. The humidity was ridiculous, was soaking wet at the end. Today I could not run because slept in the morning and in the after I could not. Tomorrow I ll be back a it. Have a great night!

This morning I was up at 6:45 a.m. since I went to bed almost at 2:00 a.m. Headed out alone to the conservatory feeling pretty good and did 6 laps, each lap feeling better and better, when I was about 500s off home I decided to do 5 x 50m hill sprints in the UTESA hill, which is pretty steep, smooth on these, then ran easy to home to finish up my 8.5k. I ran without a watch and felt out there, dont have an idea of pace and I am enjoying it a lot, no limits!! In the last 2 weeks I have been consistent, Ran 5 times each week which is a decent frecuency for running, I ll train 6 times per week soon, as I want to run fast in the upcoming races. For now I am liking the freedom no watch offers!! Have a great Sunday!

Yesteday I rested. This morning was up at 5:30 a.m. and was out with my father to the conservatory at 6:20 a.m. This time I decided to run in his direction and with him in the first half of the run, I was feeling tight and sloppy, but just before the half way point I threw a huge surged and never looked back, never saw my father again till We were here in the house when I finish stretching, the second half was at a good pace, sometimes I threw surges and sometimes I slowed down, just enjoyed the moment. Did 8.5k without a watch, and I am really enjoyed training by effort these days. Have a great rest of Saturday!

This morning was up at 6:30 a.m., I am off from work so I opted for extra sleep. Headed out to the conservatory at 7:40 a.m. to do the same distance and route that I have done over the past several runs, need to change up a bit. Today I felt good, better as the run went by luckily. Ran without a watch, just by effort and felt really good, but not that good to do a tempo type run. I ll have to change up rythm soon anyway. Have a great day!! 8.5k without a watch.

This morning was up at 5:30 a.m. and was out to the conservatory at 6:15 a.m. without a watch, did 6 laps there 12 hours after my last run, thought that I was going to feel loose since I took it easy yesterday, but felt good the first 3 laps and the last 3 felt like crap and I struggled to finish the run, was glad to finish. The weather was good. 8.5k untimed slogging!! Hope you had a great day!

Yesterday was off. Wanted to rest the right ankle that has been bothering me at the very beginning of the last few runs. This morning slept in, but that meant that I had to go after work. Just before 7 p.m. I headed out to the conservatory without a watch and did 6 laps there, felt tired at the beginning, then things got better and I was running without much effort for most of the run, but felt spent from the long day at work, all in all a good run. An easy effort run. 8.5k total untimed. The weather was decent and the enviroment was great with those people dancing and walking. I like the consistency I am getting without the worry of specifics.

This morning headed out to the conservatory at 7:40 a.m. or so, without a watch and with my new balance minimus, testing the new kicks, felt good with these, but way too light. During the first 2 kms felt like crap, but then as usual felt better and better till feeling great and effortless, changed efforts at times to estimulate the system. Finished feeling pretty good. I am loving training by feel/without a watch. The weather was hot at the end.8.5k total untimed. Have a great Sunday!

This morning was up at 5:30 a.m. and went out at 6:20 a.m. with my father to the conservatory, I did 6 laps there, started feeling like crap again, but then felt pretty good when I loosened it up. I was runing at a good pace since each lap I gapped my father( we were running in the opposite direction though), in the end I lapped, no worries, its just a training run. I ran without a watch as lately. Total 8.5k untimed. Felt pretty good when I finished. Poured some during the run and the weather was decent! Have a great day!

Yesterday I did not run. Today I woke up at 7:50 a.m., I am off from work, so decided to head later today, headed at 8:20 a.m. to the conservatory and did 6 laps there, the first couple of laps I felt like crap, but then felt better and better, the only problem was the heat and that I was thirsty at the end. I ran without a watch and did 8.5k total relaxed. I am enjoying a lot training by feel. its way more fun than worrying about specifics. Have a great day!

This morning debated hard to sleep or go out running, finally thought that I would feel great when I was done. I went out at 5;55 a.m. with Danilo to the conservatory, and I did 6 laps there without a watch, in the last few laps I felt very tired and finished really tired, but I completed the 8.5k, which is the most important thing. Hope you had a great day!

Yesterday took the day off. This morning slept in but I headed out to the conservatory after work at 7:00 p.m., as lately I went out watchless. Everything started as a normal run, got dark pretty fast today, I was not sure about how many laps I was going to do, The first 2 laps were easy normal pace, then I caught 3 USA guys that were running ahead of me and at a good pace, one fell back and I joined the woman and another man with black shirt, then the black shirt man threw a surge and I did not respond, I was ahead of the woman, she seemed to slow down, then the red shirt man passed me to catch the other man, again my intention was no racing, then the woman passed too, but I did not let her to get ahead, I just increased effort, and passed the woman and the red shirt man, caught the black shirt man and ran with him for 300s, then in the big downhill He got ahead and built a gap, then in the next hill, I closed the gap and saw the woman coming close to me, I have to admit that I was tired, but I was in the game already so no giving in, in the next big hill, the woman passed me and I increased big effort dropped the woman and caught the man again, ran with him 100s then I sped up even more and more to drop him and never looked back, that burned my legs. I was very tired and I did 1 lap " easy" but the guys never appeared again, maybe they were doing a workout and I was the only stupid guy racing in training, or they were racing too, it was pretty funny and I got to run hard for a while. Did 5 laps total and headed home to do a total of 7.5k without a watch, dont want to know the time either, the only thing I know is that I enjoyed the run and raced a bit. Another thing that I noted when I joined these guys is that they checked their watch way too often!! The weather was good but I was soaking wet at the end so maybe was not that good!! Have a great night!!

This morning was up at 6:30 a.m. and was out with my father at 7 something to the mirador, I was going to do 8k with him, but almost 4k in, I decided to add 2k with a friend since She joined us when We were about to turn back, that served me as more kms, from km 5-7 I increased effort to catch a couple of 37 mins 10k guys, but I was not successfull, anyway I got to increase my effor a bit and it felt good and tiring at the same time, then eased back again,for the last 3k, the last km was hard , I was thirsty. I am happy that with this inconsistency I could run the 10k, ran it by feel without a watch. I ll last several months training that way, I am enjoying it so far. Have a great Sunday!
