Today I started out with no destination in mind. I just decided to run randomly two blocks one way, then turn and run 3 blocks another way, then turn and do a block in another direction, etc. Along the way I was thinking about a friend who recently took up running and is going to do the June 5K with me. She asked me last week if I could run for 30 minutes, and I said yes, because I have. Then I thought about how I don't think I have actully run continuously for 30 minutes in a while, so I had to prove to myself that I could. I did. But 30 minutes continuous is sheer will power still. It really seems like that should be easier. I've done it before, I should be able to do it every run--assuming I am feeling my normal self. Or I should be able to go faster in that time. But I don't seem able to. Is my level of effort too high still, so I am pushing too hard? Or am I not pushing myself hard enough? How do I tell? Questions with seemingly no answer, so I'll just keep running.
3.08 miles this morning.
