No Junk Miles Here

I have been sleeping quite well lately.  Good riddance insomnia!  At this moment though, I am so tired, almost too tired to make a running blog entry.  Perhaps I’d write a better entry if I slept on it

Nah. 

I really don’t have much to tell.  If I believed in junk miles, today’s 9.76 miles would qualify.  But I don’t believe in junk miles.  All miles are worthwhile to me.  Today however, they were hard as hell.  My pace was sluggish.  My attitude was not exactly positive.  It wasn’t negative, merely struggling to wrap itself around some changes I want to make (thinking-wise).  Onward I ran, sweaty and salty along the ridge overlooking the Pacific Ocean.  I only half-heartedly worked at increasing my speed.  The only reason that I trudged through today’s run anxiety-free was because I know that another day will bring better, more comfortable miles.

I think someone forgot to take down the sign Winking smile:

  1. I don't believe in junk miles either. Every mile is worth something. We need that sign over here after 4 days of nonstop rain.

    1. I'm glad someone sees it my way -- how could any mile be a junk mile? :)
