"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

4.5 miles - early before work. nice cool temps this morning. i made an attempt to shake my legs loose from the cement blocks they were encased in by doing 6 x 30 sec. hill repeats on golden ave. it didn't work.

9.5 miles  - i had plans to run home after work and take advantage of the cool temps today. but late day obligations were piling up and i decided to run home at 11:30 and drive back to work for the afternoon. i'm really tired this week and all my runs have been pretty slow. i'm going to run low miles the next two days and hopefully get a much needed long run done on saturday.
