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”).

New PR for running duration

Fit to Run logo
Yesterday’s visit to Fit 2 Run at Disney Springs.

 

What is possible is often a script we write in our head. What is impossible is also a script.

A logo with a Castle theme and fireworks is not impossible.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

New PR, just days after a previous PR

High School track
Change often happens quickly, whether we measure it or not.

 

High School Track
The scenery rarely changes going around in circles.

 

New personal record, just days after a previous PR.

Most teens struggle with various degrees of self-confidence.

Truth be told, so do most adults.

Teens can’t be held fully accountable though because they haven’t learned enough about personal responsibility.

Being physically fit versus not being fit, can you guess which one facilitates self-confidence?

Personal records are proof that progress is being made. Progress caused by effort. Cause and effect. Learning to balance time, energy, and temptation.

New running PR

Sanibel Island rainbow
Thunder had us run for cover at The West Wind Inn and we waited 10 minutes for the system to pass.

 

New running PR.

Total but not consecutive running milage yesterday morning was 2.1 miles.

One-mile warm up, rest 10 minutes due to thunder, then finish with 1.1 miles.

Imagine running three consecutive PR’s in one practice

Children statues
This would be easy to miss or ignore. But remember being a child flying a kite for the first time? That’s hard to ignore.

 

Imagine running three consecutive PR’s in one practice.

He did that last night as we did 400 meter intervals.

On our final cool-down lap, i planted the seed that one day these PR (personal records) would become a warmup lap time. Something he can’t fathom now.

But i see it clearly and convincingly.
