25-May-2014 Weekend incl Running!

Sunday 25 May 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

This weekend was a bit like last: watched the kids play soccer, went running, went swimming, felt totally knackered both Saturday and Sunday nights. Luckily the weather was superb, warm 25C and sunny. Even the sea was approx 20C! Yesterday I ran to Maianbar whereas today I ran from Audley along Lady Carrington Drive. Unfortunately I think my injuries have left me out of practise and I was slow as. I didn’t even make it to the end as I wanted to keep it to 2hrs. Worse, I locked myself out of my car and had call home on 1800-reverse and get Jazmin to come and rescue me.

I got a solid 8hrs sleep last night even allowing for getting up at 6.45am this morning to drive to The Ridge for kids soccer.

Given Friday night and this weekend’s running, I have been thinking about running a lot. It’s a strange sport and all I can think of is Just Run – it doesn’t matter where, when or how or what you wear, eat or the speed. It’s meditative,  healhty etc. Just remember : Just Run! It’s like a buddhist koan, a famous one being “before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water… after enlightenment chop wood, carry water“. Running is the same and you need the same mindset: “As a beginning runner, just run … as an Olympic athlete, just run”.
