AM: 14.3 Miles, 1:23:40, Hard Running
Since I had a day off yesterday and actually slept last night I felt really alive this morning. I did my long run and set out at a steady pace. I progressed to a fast last 4 miles (20:50) I had no intention of getting down to tempo pace but the tunes were pumping in my shuffle and I felt great. The only downside is that my knee started hurting immediately after and now it is inflamed. This is very frustrating. The weather was cold at the start and I nearly opted for the treadmill but I am so glad I didn't because it warmed up very quickly. Overall it was a great morning of training and sets me up for a good night out at the PC hoops game.
People have been very supportive since we were all let go from Reebok and it is really refreshing and inspirational to have such selfless, caring friends. I must thank John Clark for the kind words on his blog. It is very easy to question yourself when you loose your Job. Was I good enough? What could I have done better? But JC's post really lifted my spirits. Thanks me man!
I have not listened to any new music in weeks. This will be remedied over the next few weeks while the Job search continues. Any recommendations are welcome. Until tomorrow,
Peace and Love,
M83 - You, Appearing. Such an emotional and very beautiful song.
