Fool for your running

Sunday, January 20, 2013

Title's going to have to wait until I find out what I end up typing out. Today's wog tilted towards the run, with the mile breaking down as 7/12ths run, 5/12ths walk. Which means that I ran a third of a mile (and a separate quarter mile) without having a ball or disc to chase. Time was 13:39, which is sad from the perspective that I did 13:45 with a 7 walk: 5 run split on Friday. On the other hand, once again, the wog occurred at the end of my time at the gym. One of these days, I'll try doing that early in the sequence, and see what I can pull off.

I'm very much not enjoying running. But I've done it, to some degree, three days in a row. Not expecting 4, but you never know. Insanity may prevail yet again. Having done 4 laps, I'm of the opinion that I could probably do a consecutive six (half mile) without collapsing.
But then I'd have to wonder about 7, or if 8 was feasible, and before see? Madness!

One odd thing about the BLC is that it's taking up all my SP attention, in terms of message board activity. Need to remember to visit the teams I was on prior to this challenge, get a dose of sarcasm once in a while, y'know?

Also, am hoping to fall asleep at a decent hour tonight. Might be useful to wake up at a normal time tomorrow, so as to be able to repeat the feat on Tuesday, what with an interview lined up for 10:30 AM Tuesday. Wish me luck, might well need it. It's for a position that I applied for despite thinking I was underqualified, so I'm amused that they actually got back to me where I haven't heard from so many other positions where my experiences might fit right in. Thinking if this doesn't go well (I'm going in with no expectations, for better or worse), I might take a couple of shots in a radical direction. But I'll cross that bridge if it becomes necessary.

    Hey, you never know--running might be your thing if you stick with it for a while. Do you have music while you run? That helps me a lot.

Hope the interview turned out well!

    Insanity will take over ... I started out with a bad attitude toward running and now I run three times a week training for half marathons. It's been 8 years since I claimed that I was never running again.
ps: I'm with you on the BLC taking up all my Spark time. I have got to remember to visit my other teams, too. Especially since one of them is actually MINE.

Sleep well!!
