"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

10.4 miles / 8:28 avg. rio grande/western drive - south to north and back. after 8 days off in a row i felt pretty good until the last couple of miles, but still had strength to the end. maybe i should make 8 off/1 on my new training regimen.

10.2 miles / 8:40 avg. commute run home. tried a little harder on mile 6 for a 7:55 split.

in a month or so my minimum required distance for the commute will be cut to 5 -ish miles (from the 9 miles it has been all these years).

10 miles / 9:03 avg. big western loop (probably the last time i run this route...)

the good news is that over the last week i've averaged 10.4 miles per run. the bad news is that i've run only three times in the last week.
