Leadership Axiom #123

 I love little quips or statements that help me lead, in business, life, ministry, etc. Here is a new one I ran across in a recent read, "The loudest boos often come from the cheapest seats!"  How true!!!!
  The loudest critic often has the least invested! This axiom can help you overcome criticism. Sure, criticism can be constructive but most often it is destructive in nature. Remember this axiom...consider the source..then move forward!
  Today we are seeing the advent of the tropical storm that hit Texas. It's outer fringe seems to be covering our area with clouds and showers are on the horizon...thank you Lord!!!
  I have been tired all day, rising around 4am, working on my Wednesday and Sunday night teachings, after lunch I tried to nap...no avail...so I went ahead and ran the "Fartlek fun" run. Today it is a slight increase, 7 x 1 min @ 5K pace with a one min rest in between each segment. Oddly I ran these faster today?
  For the archives here are the pace/speeds for each interval....I am trying to dial in the 5K pace I need to break 24..... 7:23, 7:37,7:21, 7:08, 6:57, 7:24, 7:05. Obviously I am all over the place....the faster are downs and the slower ups....I did feel pretty good?! So Saturday is slated as a breakthrough race with NO taper.... I should be ready. The course is similar to the terrain out here...ups and downs! Hey...you all are the best, btw!!! Peace!

Great post and all so true. Your training is going very well. You will have a very good 5k. Hope you get good rain there.

I like the axiom - in my experience that has definitely been the case.
Good luck with the 5k. The Fartlek times look strong.

I'd never heard that axiom, but I love it.

Glad you are getting rains and not terribly stormy weather from the hurricane. Nice job on that fartlek! I tried one out last night but my speeds were not as good :)

    So a perfect day to race! 60's, overcast, breezy. The field was small and club racers were sparse!   I was probably the only guy i...
