Really tired on the way back from work, did a light loving kindness meditation on the marshrutka back to the house. That seemed helpful and perked me up a bit which led to some nice mindfulness on the walk from the marshrutka stop to the flat. Still I could feel yesterday's easy run on my legs.
However, this run was just the joy of running. I endeavored to keep mindful of the foot plant the whole way, which I did for probably 99% of the run. I also worked a bit on unsatisfactoriness and impermanence in the last half of the run as I noticed I sped up in some places but then eased back off just because I want to run tomorrow.
This new 15k route requires staying in the now also. Running it clockwise is "easier" on staying in the now than counter clockwise. The counter clockwise route is 3.5 miles of straight road to finish so looking ahead is of no use. That is a good phenomena to contemplate.
So fortunate to just be able to go out there and do it.
