"Engaging in a little suffering — however self-imposed, arbitrary and contrived — before breakfast each morning tends to demand some humility and injects some marked relief into the rest of the day, making things sharper, more inspired, more immediately aware of the powerful presence of being. And that seems really worthwhile." A. Krupicka

4 miles - my ITB flared up at the end of my run on thursday, no doubt a product of my complete lack of fitness nowadays. so i took it really easy today in hopes that i could stress the leg just enough to strengthen it. i could feel the weakness in my knee throughout the run, but no pain.

pm edit: so i took a look back at my running one year ago and now am wondering who that person was last year. pretty motivating to read through the whole month (although August 2012 was pretty insane for me as well). i suppose i can get to that kind of mileage again - but i'm not as motivated without some kind of goal. here's to a safe buildup these next few weeks.

a year ago my total mileage for the year up through March 12th was 551.3 miles. this year? 148.1 miles...hi, my name is James, and i'm a hobby jogger...
