The differences between the two runs was staggering. You'll recall that monkey mind ruled the day yesterday and at one point I just felt exhausted. Even taking in to account that each day is different and who knows what guy will be running in the shoes I put on in any given day; today's run was quite a phenomena.
Mindfulness came from the beginning as I started following the breath from the elevator and was well on my way by the time I pressed the button on the watch.
The run was just a run, but the following of the breath and mindfulness of working with wholesome and unwholesome, see unwholesome arise and immediatley workign with it, and it going away and following the breath some more, it was over before it started. I felt refreshed, not tired and relaxed as well.
Now, not all days are like this, but in comparison to monkey mind Saturday, it is once again an indicator of what happens when you have mindfulness and right concentration.
