Day 594 - Rocks in my Pockets

"Life is short, running makes it seem longer. "

Sometimes. Sometimes things go fast without even thinking. Like me. Lately I've been running faster. Not intentionally. It just has sort of happened. Now the comparisons are all relative of course. Kind of like Tyson Gay is slow compared to Usain Bolt, and I'm pretty fast compared to well, I'll think of something...
That being said after the recent backpacking excursion, where a fifty pound pack was hefted around for a few days (remind me to leave the multiple pounds of jerky at home next time), I was reminded that I used to be hefting around that much extra weight, in my "trunk" among other places. I have to say, running is much easier without it. I think I'll keep it that way. Oh and I should probably lose the piano as well. One note at a time I suppose...


2.35 in 24:30.

I'm trying to reunite with my slowness - fighting it with this painful speedwork is no fun!
