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.

Risk taking 101

Cycling 25 miles round trip just to go to the gym was a one-time solution to skip a day of running to rest a sore leg.

That was two weeks ago.

Now i’m 96% convinced that i will take an indefinite break from running.

Could be a month.

Might be six months.

Time will tell.

Feeling exceptionally creative (choosing to bike is just a simple, but dramatic departure from normal) because underneath the physical focus is a work initiative that’s going to blow the roof off what i’ve done in the past.

And breaking free (intentionally or unintentionally) from normal is very inspiring.

How Much Is Enough?

Third time’s a charm?

Progress is simple. One foot in front of the other. Day after day.

Would be lying if the thought of another Track comeback in 2015 wasn’t a decently burning goal right now, December 17, 2014.

Will being retired and self-employed make it easier to train?

Just for the record, the past two year’s comeback attempts have been defeated due to injuries and competing priorities.

Maybe at the end of the day, the real blessing isn’t competition and results, but simply the drive to keep going year after year.
