On Monday I ran about the exact same time but ran the route backwards. There was a lot of work on foot steps, easy, light etc. Experienced a bit of tightness as well, and my feet hurt like hell when it was over.
On Tuesday, I got home from work and my brain said run! I ran harder than I have run in several months. It was tiring and not at all smooth but it required that I actually run and focus on just step after step. Not how big the step where to step how to step easy light smooth. In the end I was really tired but happy with the run but it was a lot of work.
On Wednesday I just tried to put one foot after the other, i was dehydrated and very tired. it was a boring run but all I did was run.
Thursday, I couldn't do it, just exhausted, i was however happy that I went four days in a row without wimping out. Very tired and very dehydrated.
and then Friday came. I put on the shoes went out the door and ran. But there was no steps, small steps no upright worrying about posture, nothing about 2 steps and 3 steps, I began to run. It began to just be running, the focus was just counting my breath, not form, posture, etc. I just ran, it was truly easy, light and smooth.
Saturday, was the same thing. I thought about it and I think (dangerous word) too much thinking, not enough enjoying.
For the first time in months and months I had to quick runs, one I planned, the other I did not.
Working on no self, reading on it, working on it. Stop thinking, stop attaching, just run.
