If we really want to get rid of suffering, completely and totally, then clinging has to go. The spiritual path is never one of achievement; it is always one of letting go. The more we let go, the more there is empty and open space for us to see reality. Because what we let go of is no longer there, there is the possibility of just moving without clinging to the results of the movement. As long as we cling to the results of what we do, as long as we cling to the results of what we think, we are bound, we are hemmed in.

How do you calculate metric temperature?

Ran at mid day today.  Temperature ranged from 26-28 C.  What exactly does that mean?  How do you convert Celsius to Fahrenheit?

Here's How:
  1. Take the temperature in Celsius and multiply 1.8.
  2. Add 32 degrees.
  3. The result is degrees Fahrenheit.

We usually just say x'2 +32 around here, but technically that just ain't right now is it?

The tightness behind the right knee kept me from getting up real early yesterday and running before getting the day started.  When I got out of bed yesterday walking was uncomfortable.  during the course of the day I worked on about 5 different stretches and finally found one with a towel around the feet and the leg extended which ended up working well.  That felt good.

I also took off the strap around mid lower leg that was for the Soleus muscle.  Who knows?  Soemtimes your willing to try anything huh?

Today's run was nice and easy and light for 15km.  Not much going on, but it was damn hot to me.  By the way, still going without the watch. The temperature is supposed to get a little lower over the next couple of days, but not much.  There may be rain on Saturday and Sunday also.

Just about decided to just run the Marathon to say that I did but to use it as a fitness gauge and high mileage workout.  I'm also considering not wearing the watch there also.

By the way, 26 C is 78.8 F.
