Sweating, Books and 5.0 Miles
5.000 miles (8:57, 8:57, 8:57, 8:34, 8:17)
0.506 miles (15:00/mile)
total: 5.506 miles
course: home treadmill
Fun, good sweat tonight. I thought about getting through the winter fitter than I am now. I am overall feeling better, knowing if I stick with it, each month will feel successively better.
After a good run, and this is odd to say, but my mind is more relaxed. Any of you who know me know I am working eight cylinders at once, distracted, curious, chasing ideas and so on. I happen to also love to read, and, after a run like to tonight, I can read with focus.
Reading at the moment includes Higdon's Marathoning book, and some bios about the presidents. Anyone remember those booklets John Hancock Mutual Life Insurance published in 1976? I have a small stack.
