Training Session #6- June 7
5:59 am to 6:26 am
No hurry. No pause.
25 minutes of intervals (walking, jogging, and squats)
A continuous jog the length of a basketball court 3 times ( approximately 282 feet).
During my warm-up walk I listened to:
Jogging the length of a basketball court 3 consecutive times was a massive accomplishment. No buckling knees. No falls. Just straight jogging for approximately 282 feet. I wish you could’ve seen it.
In my private hours, I’m hard on myself. I also have a bad habit of comparing myself to others. To their success. To their adventures. To their wealth. To their health. And comparisons usually instigate dangerous feelings of ineptness. But this morning, when I smoothly jogged 282 feet I didn’t feel inept. I felt electric. A feeling I once believed was reserved for impressive triumphs like completing a marathon or climbing a mountain. Today, I jogged 282 feet. Today, I don’t feel inept. Today, I feel proud….which is something I could get used to.
Quote I’m Thinking about Today:
“Every fool’s got a reason for feelin’ sorry for himself.”~Bruce Springsteen
“The man turns back to the mirror. His eyes are deep blue like the child’s. Below his soft chest, beats the heart of a child–boundless and wild. A heart that yearns to play outside again. To run, jump, tackle, and swing. To sweat, to bleed, to get dirty again. A heart that is much younger then the body that holds it.”
