What do you want to accomplish this morning?

It’s your final 5k of the 2016 Cross Country season.

One option is to surpass your personal best time of 31:35.

Another option is to break 30 minutes.

Another option is to not be the last team finisher.

One text is worth a 1,000 words

running accomplishment
Yesterday.

 

One text is worth a 1,000 words.

Previous best was 8:35.

Huge improvement.

By the way, as a Baby Boomer, the main theme for our improvement, is maintaining our health after we reach an elevated state (compared to our “previous health before our lifetime commitment began”).

Yesterday our water “taxi” departed at 10:15am. Thirty minutes later, we reached our destination and hiked five miles as a Ranger-led group of 20. We gained 500 feet elevation. Fifty stories up and 50 down.

Buzz Worthy?

How long will i avoid what i love to do?

Uncle Grandpa screen shot
Screen shot from the Cartoon, Uncle Grandpa, which i watched on a recent flight using my iPhone.

 

How long i avoid running will be interesting to watch unfold.

Why?

Because i have no idea where this evil plan “break from running” will lead.

Meanwhile, i will embrace this morning’s 25-mile round trip bicycle ride to Gold’s Gym.
