Yesterdays run was pretty good. It took a while to get loose. My heart wasn't ready to work?! I think it wanted to keep resting! The bod is basically recovered, and the hint of sciatica is still there, but I'm thinking it is on the mend.
So I decided to cover 3.2 in a very comfortable pace. I stretched and worked the core afterwards.
I noticed some dude going door to door in our neighborhood while out. He parked in front of my driveway!? (Not cool). I wonder what he was selling? I thought it really takes a great deal of nerve, courage, fortitude, or desperation to go door to door in this age.
Well I was out so he couldn't catch me today! I really enjoyed the last mile. I was able to disassociate and think about the sermon for this coming week. To think about my sons and how they are doing. You see, running is a time when I think. One of the greatest truths in life is that we are ultimately a product of our thoughts! Most people are stuck -"Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again?" Winnie the Pooh.
I have found a joy in thinking. That's one of the reasons I run, because when I think I find ideas, and when I find ideas I find encouragement and confidence.
Here's a great quote that is startling to think about-"Our minds are lazier than our bodies." François, Duc de La Rochefoucauld
