And All Was Well...

Boy I tell you in life it really sometimes can be just simple things that can change our mood.  You see everyone looks for these grand gestures, and really life is about the simple stuff.  A real pair of eyes is a thing to hope for.  Throw away all garbage as much as possible.  Our heart strives for this and this, but just maybe... just maybe consider what is in our heart is garbage too. 

Like Solomon said, "eat, drink, and be merry for that is your lot in life"  The rest is all folly.  Why, and how could he say that??  From a pure heart.  That too is one of the Beatitudes too right??  Blessed are the pure in heart.  We definitely are not born that way, that is for sure.  In our heart is to strive for this and this and this and this, but with a pure heart comes the wisdom that so very little really matters, especially when the worms are eating our bodies.   :) 

I am not going to tell you what turned around my mood though, although a hint maybe???....   (Namaste)    :)

Track last night.  I knew going in I did not want to push.  Maybe I never do, but I think I was a bit tired too.  We ran 3-10:00 min. runs.  Just under 8:00 pace for me..... UGH!!  It was a doable pace.  It was our first 10:00 min run, and 10 and 12 minute runs are really hard on the track, and I could have done another, so the track won't kill me this year, but I definitely have to get faster. 

Couple notes Sarah is flying now.  Holy crap.  I told Jerry to go his own pace, and he did the final one.  As I suspected he is faster than me now.  Ganzi made it back to speed work, and as all first speed work sessions go.  OUCH!!!    :)

I realize you cannot get faster without the track.  I have built up a good base though, so the legs can run, and Cathy and I are going to tackle 18 miles on Saturday.  Now the shit gets real.  This spring is about getting in shape.  I don't see any great marathon for me this spring, but look out fall.  Fall marathon is what I am gearing for, and an early spring one helps me with that. 

That is it for today!!!   :)

Thanks for reading!!!   :)

Hope Everyone has a Great and Awesome Day!!!   :)

oh track. don't stress too much about it. Just give it your best on your good days and work through it on your worst. No big deal.
