rediscovering the joy
i am now starting to feel a new sense of freedom and rejuvenation in my running. simply by mixing it all up and doing what i feel when i feel, i'm beginning to enjoy it once more. out have gone slavish training schedules (for now) and lots and lots of pre planned races (for now also). the distances have come down but the quality is getting better. there's no shirking..last week included track, hills, and a tempo...but i'm just doing what feels right on any given day. take saturday, in the morning i headed out and 10 minutes later i was back, totally lacking inspiration to run. but fast forward 5 hours and i was loving a simple 8 mile hilly x-c under a sunny autumnal sky. add in to the mix a bit of biking, swimming and gym and its a varied cocktail to keep it all fresh, interesting and fun. and thats what it should be yes?
again some variety on sunday..a tempo run here..
followed by some x-c chasing karen riding fred here...
