My blood-béchamel content levels are way too high. Slow and difficult run.
I don’t get songs stuck in my head. Not when i run. I focus on breathing, the placement of my feet, especially my right foot, which has a tendency to flare out behind me and to the side then return at an angle. Sometimes i notice i’m arching my back, then i focus on my core and recreate a sustainable posture. I cycle through body scans and space out and return to my breath. That entertains me plenty.
New route. Shorter than expected and i didn’t feel like doubling back for more mileage. A few steep hills. I can go up hills fine, but a steep descent is tough on my knees. Elevation is not bad but i’m not great with a steep gradient. Not sure I’ll take that route again. Nice day, though. Blustery spring sun mixed with rain. Blue skies, pewter clouds.
Srping time is a dream. Hope comes easy, and patience is hardly thought of.
With three months complete, here are some stats. Reminder: I took nine days off in March for the kidney stone affair.
- March – 100 miles
- February – 93 miles
- January – 69 miles
In March I ran 2 half-marathons, no runs less than 5 mile, and most runs above 7 mile.
