And let's not forget the the MVS for today: Gorillaz - 19/2000 Soulchild Remix
Other "epiphanies" from today's run:
- Red lights are the perfect barometer of whether I'm having a good or a bad run. If I want it to stay green so I don't have to break my stride and lose my groove, that's a good sign. If I'm praying for it turn red on the whole approach so I can take a frickin' break already: not so good.
- Don't look at your shadow. It's a real buzz kill when you feel like you're cruising along at record speed and looking like a super-fit running rockstar and the shadow says otherwise.
- Ditto for the watch.
- And for windows or other reflective surfaces.
- START SLOW. Every run where I take it easy at the start I always end up at faster pace through the middle (that feels easy) than I would if I tried to start fast. Also true for races. Why do I never learn this lesson???
Also, blogging has prevented me from doing my planned yoga workout for today. Crap. Actually I guess I still have time if I really wanted to do it, but I really don't.
