"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 miles - treadmill workout - 15 min.wu then 10x1 min on/off @mp/ 3 min easy/ 15x2 min on/1 min off @mp - about a mile cooldown to get 10 miles. my mp is 8:20, the "off" minutes ranged from 9:40 to 10:00 minutes per mile


i found the 2 minute repeats were easier because it was long enough i could relax and work on form etc. with the 1 minute reps i feel like i'm always watching the clock. mentally the hardest part of this run was the warmup and the cooldown. physically everything felt good.
