Rash Ramblings

A runner once, an explorer always!

Simmering

It was very still this morning, with only an infrequent breeze that would not move a small feather across smooth glass. It was very muggy and seemed as though that steamy stillness was trying to fill every little crack in your being. I am still in the “hold” mold right now. I walk some and run some. I am trying now to increase the running time and decrease the walking time. The plan is to slowly increase the load. I first aim to slowly get to the 40 – 60 mile a week level and then I will see how much above that I can get. My main goal is consistency.

I also want to lower my per mile time. At this years Capitol 10,000 I finished with an 8:05 per mile average. I definitely think I still have the ability to go below a 7:00 minute per mile for a 10,000 meter. A lot of this is dependent on what I can make myself believe, because there are periods when I feel like I’m on the verge of the old groove. I must find the diligence to focus. Somewhere in this journey, I will find my way to whom I am to become.
