Rash Ramblings

A runner once, an explorer always!

It is all about consistency

I was thinking the other day about these writings. It may look like I am writing this to others, but this is really me writing to me, myself and I. I am somehow trying to work out all that I am faced with and get some explanation to these things and how they effect me. I do hope though that somehow through these writings others may find some answers to questions they have been faced with. I also hope there is at least a little interest in seeing if I can make it to my goals.

I finally decided that that scheduled day off thing was just a cop out. Would the river still be able to wear the stones smooth if the water was not in constant motion? The stiffness I’ve felt in the beginnings of my runs the past few days was short lived. I am feeling more on my way. The cadence in my run is more rapid and at ease and probably what I need to do more than anything is push harder. It seems as time goes on, I am looking forward to my runs more than I am dreading it. The more I think I have it in control, the more I think I will be able to excel again. I have a much better handle on just how much the different facets of one’s life are interdependent.

I have now started looking at what road races may be available in the near future so that I might be able to test where my abilities are at the current time. It is not so important that I know, but it might give me more motivation.     Sat 18:26.47  Sun 17:18.91  Mon 17:37.44

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
– Henry David Thoreau

All men dream but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible.
– T.E. Lawrence

The question for each man to settle is not what he would do if he had means, time, influence and educational advantages; the question is what he will do with the things he has. The moment a young man ceases to dream or to bemoan his lack of opportunities and resolutely looks his conditions in the face, and resolves to change them, he lays the corner-stone of a solid and honorable success.
– Hamilton Wright Mabie

Victory belongs to the most persevering.
– Napoleon Bonaparte
