To celebrate my return to good health, I am going to go for an awesome, mindful run, along my favourite route next to the beautiful frozen river. I am just finishing my second (much needed) coffee pre-run and then I'm outta here! (Although I am 'fixed', the coffee is much needed and welcomed this morning.)
While I was lying around and resting yesterday, I watched this awesome interview with Dr. Timothy Noakes, 'The Lore of Running': http://mindfulrunning.leadpages.net/dr-noakes-interview/
If you have a spare hour and a bit, have a watch! It is well worth it. Very inspiring and interesting, especially with regards to the parts re: nutrition and fuel, and how much water to take on during a run or long run. I also loved what they were talking about at the start, that running is an experiment of one: a personal experiment for each of us: ie. we are all unique and different, thus there is no one-size-fits-all aspect to running or training, nor should there be. Also loved hearing about their running highs and feelings towards long runs and running ultras. Very motivating!! So I had to share.
Aaand, somehow it's the weekend again! How did that happen?!
Tell me, what's on for your weekend? Are you celebrating? Running? Working? Racing? Visiting friends and family?
For me: well, I'm going to start the weekend right, with that soon-to-be-had run. Tomorrow, I'm hoping to go for a long cycle adventure in the morning - there's a huge reservoir that's about 40km or so from here, according to Google maps. Today, I plan to (hopefully) get a fair bit of writing done (I have a couple of other books in the works, although a long, long way off - one is a similar fiction book, in the same style as Bacon Sleep Sex, and one is non-fiction: our travel adventure of touring around China in a caravan). Bit of a getting-started problem/writer's block at the moment - am thinking it may be my environment? So, going to head to a local café instead of our apartment here and see if that helps. I know, once I get fully started and further into the writing that it'll flow nicely (I know, in theory, what I want to write) yet at the moment, I am struggling to properly 'start' - a bit like running or exercise I suppose! Starting can be the hardest part.
Enjoy your weekend everyone!!!
