"Engaging in a little suffering — however self-imposed, arbitrary and contrived — before breakfast each morning tends to demand some humility and injects some marked relief into the rest of the day, making things sharper, more inspired, more immediately aware of the powerful presence of being. And that seems really worthwhile." A. Krupicka

AM - 9.8 miles / commute crawl into work. Clear, sunny. 34 to 39 degrees. 9:31 avg.

Supposed to be sunny, breezy, and 60 degrees for the commute home.

 

PM - 9.3 miles / 8:44 avg.  Usually when I run to work, then run back home in the afternoon, the run home goes really well. Not so today. It took 1.64 miles until the PF in my right ankle loosened up. It wasn't until 2.51 miles that ye ole achilles in my lower right leg settled down. My IT band on the outside of my right leg was even threatening to spaz out for a little while. I thought a mutiny was close at hand. Miles 6 and 7 went well (8:02, 8:17), but after that I was just tired out and couldn't wait to finish the run. It could be worse...I could NOT be a runner.
