Naked

...well , I think that's the term for running without music etc!!! And tonight I went out for the first time without Laura on repeat or music.

I loved it and ended up running 13k and enjoyed it all. Was slow, 1 hr 34 but it was never about speed tonight.

What a lovely pastime I have stumbled across. It really is life changing.

For anyone struggling, don't give up, keep going at whatever pace you need to but keep going.

Wow Jules that was an impressive run! I always used to listen to music but just recently have really been enjoying going 'naked' myself!

The funny thing is Mim, I never do. After a long evening run, I always have a restless night.

Thanks all. I've got a 7 mile race, no headphones, coming up so thought I nedded to practise.

I did totally enjoy it though and think that's because I slowed down and didn't try to beat any ov my times.

Well there's how to write an attention-grabbing Post Title!! He he!! Sounds like you had a whale of a time. I had a steady 5k run last night. It was a beautiful twilight trot with a gorgeous pink sky that seemed to make everything look so different. Because I ran it steady, I was able to switch off more to my body and take in my surroundings. I was in the moment - a bit of mindfulness. Quite special x

I know. I found it amusing. Probably my warped sense of humour!!

That's exactly how I felt. I slowed right down so I could do the distance and totally enjoyed the run.

No pink sky's for me though. Grey clouds only
