"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

7 miles / 8:31 avg. minority/crestwood gumbo. well dangit. i was having a great run. had a lot of energy and was thinking i could go maybe 12+ miles today. then a twinge in my achilles in mile 7 suddenly became a very sharp pain, so i hobbled my way to 7 miles then had to walk another mile to get back. hopefully the walk did good. i'll stretch today and see how things feel tomorrow. a twinge in the achilles is common enough, i'm thinking it's strained because i've been taking so many days off lately.

3 miles easy on the treadmill. i think i've nipped an otherwise serious injury in the bud. the achilles wasn't nearly as painful after two days rest and today's 3 miles on the treadmill actually had it feeling a little stronger towards the end of the run. i think i'm going to stick to the treadmill for the next couple of runs and just continue to take it slow. before this injury, i was hoping to start "training" at the beginning of january for the winter series - but now i'll just have to play it by ear. i'll see how next week goes but todays jog was very positive.

6 miles on the rio grande parkway. no achilles pain, just feels a little tired. i felt really good and wanted to run farther but decided to do the smart thing - hopefully i can maintain that attitude through the rest of this week.

5 miles - easy street/crestview. things are okay with the achilles. going to take caution to the extreme for another week before speeding up in preparation for the 5k on feb. 7th - and the many races beyond.

WT 19 miles

year end summary: 2014

things started out sort of blah, finally rising to mediocre by october or thereabouts, then finished the year with a big whimper.

hopefully 2015 will bring better, and more, running.

7 year basic stats:

year        total miles        avg per day run        weekly avg.

2008    1317            6.6                      25

2009    2654            8                         51

2010    2578            9.2                      49

2011    2618            9.4                      50

2012    3083            8.4                      59 (ran every day)

2013    1177            6.7                      23

2014    1716            7.2                      33
