how many runners time their runs instead of counting the miles?
and is there anyone else like me who doesn't really bother with a stop watch at all? i just go on how I feel, though I roughly know how long each route will take according to my effort. but even when i go to the track i don't time the reps, even when i do loads. i could ask a family member to help time me, but i dont know if this is necessary, maybe i'll try once or twice just to ensure i keep an even pace.
has anyone achieved success this way or do i need to be more methodical? i've found i'm improving by just stepping up my training, but soon i realise i might have to start calculating things...
