You can reconfigure your camera to separate the focus function from the shutter release. This is done by setting the AE-L/AF-L button to AF-ON.

To do this go to the Custom Setting Menu, then select "f Controls". Then move the cursor to the "f4" option and click the right cursor to reveal the f4 options. Move to the "AF-ON" option and then hit the OK button. Now you can use your thumb to focus the D600 using the AE-L/AF-L button, independent of the shutter button. The shutter button will no longer engage the AF system while using this setting.

In this way you can focus on your subject, and then not worry about your camera trying to refocus when engaging the shutter button.
