"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

It's been a very busy and productive week for me, and I was planning on running today but my body demanded rest. I guess I'm not 42 any more...

15 miles / Easy pace. Mostly cloudy, temps in the low to mid 70's. Drove to the nature preserve in west Farmington and ran a bunch of the 1.2 mile loops on the flat dirt trail there - then ran the 1/2 mile to the buffalo ranch trail and ran that 4 mile loop then back to the preserve for a couple more loops. Felt kind of blah today, slow pace but just plugged steadily along.Nice to get 2+ hours of running in, it's been a while.

7 miles / 8:06 avg. From work - post rain. Comfortable temps. Felt good so I tried to pace up a bit. For my ability level, an 8:06 average pace represents a solid effort training run.

10 miles / from work. Kind of an interesting run. The first 5 miles I wasn't feeling too great and was at 47:27 (9:29 avg.) so I thought I'd just head back and make it an easy 6 mile day. But then I realized that I was feeling warmed up and loose, so I tried picking it up. I ran the last 5 miles in 41:24 (8:17 avg.). So I'm glad I didn't quit.

Splits: 9:57, 9:19, 9:31, 9:40, 8:59, - 8:26, 8:27, 8:26, 8:08, 7:56.   / 8:53 avg for the run.

* Over the summer I had gotten in the habit of inconsistency , missing 8 to 10 days a month. So for September I'm trying to get back in the habit of running everyday. I've missed one day so far, and have run the last 18 days in a row. Other, more experienced runners are always saying consistency is key to becoming a stronger runner - I'm learning that this is definitely true.

10 miles / 8:17 avg. From work. 2 miles warmup felt good so I decided to do 1 mile on and 1 off.

I ran in my mt101's, a super lightweight, minimalistically inclined trail shoe that happens to make a mighty fine road shoe as well.
