"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

work was pretty crazy for me this week and i decided it was a good time to take a two day break from running during this slow mileage build up. i'm hoping to move my weekly totals into the 40 miles range the next couple of weeks. it's amazing how much longer it's taking me now than it did just 8 years ago. i guess at my age 8 years of aging manifests itself much differently than when i was in my forties. 

my wife and i have been taking daily walks since our twentieth anniversary on march 8th. so we've been at it a couple of months now. we do have one day a week as an elective day off because we're so busy all the time. most of the walks have been 1/2 mile to 2 miles. todays we covered over 3 1/2 miles! we were out for an hour and fifteen minutes. it's kind of nice to just drop everything and take a walk; kind of a break from the world. feels a little old skool to go on a walk in this day and age.

so, hoping to to hit 35 miles this week then 40 ish the following week. then work up tp 50 mpw in june and maintain at least that until ski season...

all i needed was a 4 mile run today to meet my goal of 130 miles for the month of May and yesterday at the end of my run i developed an injury that has kept me from making that goal. i tried this morning,  i went out a half mile and walked back. the injury feels much better this morning than it did all of yesterday but my gait while running was all gimpy and i could tell that even four miles was going to fatigue everything and possibly make the injury worse. not worth it to make an arbitrary goal especially since i'm not even training for anything just setting these little goals so that i have something to work towards.

so other than a dissapointing end to the month things went pretty well. i met two of the three goals in that i ran at least 21 days (i ran 22) and ran at least one 10 miler (i ran two). i fell short of the 130 miles for the month with 126 miles total.

setting goals for june but i'm scaling it back slightly from the plan i had in my head up until the injury yesterday because i may need to take more days off and/or keep the mileage low until i know i'm clear.

goals for june:

- run at least 23 days

- run at least 160 miles

- run at least one 13 miler
