I created my blog as a way of trying to deal with issues caused by my weight loss struggles. I didn't want to burden Hiroko with all the messy thoughts running through my head from day to day, and I figured that this blog could be where I worked through my thoughts till they were better organized and more palpable However, I got away from a lot of that by focusing upon the details of my workouts, which are really not important and kind of boring. That is not to say that I don't see the value in recording my workout, but there is no need for an accurate detailing of the number of reps in each of my workouts. What I want/need is to a place to process the mental side of these activities. So on Sunday, I set out to recreate to my run from the day before in an attempt to better appreciate it.
I enjoyed Saturday's run and felt great for having done it. I felt some pride but more so was pleased for having done exactly what I set out to accomplish. On Sunday, I wanted to relive it, but not focus as much on the running, but more on the place. I wanted capture the feeling generated by Umstead and see myself enjoying a moment of happiness. I wanted to share some images of where I run with Jessie and Irene, who often take the time to read and comment on my blog. I wanted to share with them images of me enjoying this run, so I brought my camera along. I wasn't at all concerned with my time. Heck, I didn't even know if I would be able to run six miles the day after running seven. Thirteen miles would easily exceeds my highest two day mileage total by around four miles. Of course, I brought Old Bob, but I looked at him less on this run than I had on Saturday's.
