Probably 80% of the time while I run I’m thinking about nothing. I’m content with
Farmer Jon was doing what farmers do
As I was walking down 1st Ave in NYC around mile 17 hearing the people scream my name (along with a few idiots telling me I was ‘almost there’), I was planning my comeback. I would focus on the important things at work, delegate to my team as needed, not sweat the small stuff, get back to running 5x a week, and find a few spring marathons to nail. That is, every time someone would throw more dirt, I would step on top of it, not let it bury me.
As such, this week has been amazing for running. I had a (somewhat disjointed w/ stoplights) 6mi tempo on Tues @ 6:40, a solid 8 mi recovery on Weds, and another “real” 5mi tempo on Thursday which averaged 6:35 overall. My body isn’t rejecting the miles and I have a renewed vigor for the sport. But, more importantly..... I have a renewed vigor for everything.
Hmmmm, reading through that, it was rather a downer post.
So, here is a funny picture to make everything better!
