"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

busy catching up on yard/house work - perfect timing for a two day mini break while i build a mileage base back into my body. I'm hoping to get at least 20 more years of healthy running out of this bag of bones - 🏃

13 miles - bluff trail from jensen park. super tired when the alarm went off this morning and i knew the temps were going to be cool today so i opted for a later run. got started around 10 am. first couple of miles were hopeful then it became clear this would just be a run for miles - no pace. felt fine at the turn around point but started to notice my pace slowing with each mile even though my effort felt the same. the last four miles were extremely difficult mentally. the desire to stop and walk was super strong. but i knew to just keep shuffling along and that it wasn't the end of the world, though it felt like it. all in all a good crash. 9:21 avg.
