No Watch November

Back in May after the LA Marathon, Boston Marathon and Vancouver Marathon Marta, Ellen and I did Mix It Up May as a way to take a break from miles and miles of running. It helped me get excited about training for New York, and it was a great way to explore the many workout studios LA has to offer. After the New York Marathon, I’m calling it No Watch November. I’m running Boston in April, and I’m super excited about running my best there now that I have experience with the course, but I need a break so that I don’t go into training feeling tired. I’m ditching the Garmin in November. No checking splits. No specific mileage plan. Just running how long I want…how fast I want…when I want. I will admit I’m a little sad New York is over, but rather than jumping into more hard training and burning myself out, I’m reminding myself that I have the rest of my life to run. The marathon rewards those who are patient. I’m just going to keep chipping away at the time. With less running there’s been more time for school, enjoying LA, and cooking. Here’s what we’ve been up to…
