Rash Ramblings

A runner once, an explorer always!


Really right now when I think of my running quest, I can only think of more. That is what I’ve been thinking this past week or so anyway. It was for that reason this morning I started my next level. I will run longer runs in the morning. I am doing this because it is the only way I can guarantee it will happen. Too many things can happen after the day has started that can get in the way and stop good intentions.

I am still running everyday. I was thinking about running a race on Saturday, the Superhero Obstacle Course Race  http://www.247superhero.com/  , but I left too many things to the last minute and decide against it. Then I thought I would run a longer run  Saturday afternoon, but things came up and I ended up not running at all on Saturday. I then decided I would do that run Sunday afternoon, but after I gave blood Sunday morning I thought it might be better if I didn’t. I got back into it Monday after two unexpected days off.

I have to up the ante now to advance to the next level. There has been some stagnation and it seems to carry over into this writing, because I just don’t seem to have anything come to mind when I’m just coasting. I need that additional pressure it seems to get the thoughts flowing. We’ll see how much faster improvement comes now. This morning, I at least doubled the distance because it took almost three times as long and I know the pace was not that much different. I am ready for this new challenge.  thur 17:46.12  fri 18:14.44  mon 17:44.63 tue 18:33.81 wed 48:49.65
