Rash Ramblings

A runner once, an explorer always!

It is the same day as the previous post and I did,as I alluded earlier, put in a second run today. I am ready to get this show on the road. Also as part of this phase two, today when I stopped for lunch, I got a single meat hamburger with no cheese, fries and a unsweetened tea (the only kind I would want anyway). We’ll see about further tweaks to the diet. I know when I was running before, there were things I didn’t eat then that I do now that could go away again. It won’t be a thing either that I am just keeping myself from eating them, but that I just loose the desire to eat them or at least eat them much less frequently.

The run was at a decent pace for me right now. It was very sunny and very warm. I felt good although a little stiff from pushing it some this morning. It was somewhere around four miles and I finished in 34:02.14. I post this even though I am a bit embarrassed in my per mile rate. I am doing this with every intention of getting as close to the times I was getting in my 20’s as I can. I don’t know if it is possible, but at the same time I don’t know that it is impossible. That would mean I would have some training runs with six to seven minute per mile pacing. So time will tell and I can only try to reach as far as I can and see where that leads.

You have to wonder at times what you’re doing out there. Over the years, I’ve given myself a thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where it started. It comes down to self-satisfaction and a sense of achievement.  – Steve Prefontaine
