Turns out I ran 4 seconds faster today than I did yesterday. So, for an unknown reason the fitness is in a strange area. I really have no idea and in fact I am supposed to let go of every run and just do the next one if I am eve to move onward in my development. Anywhere, both runs under 8 minutes per mile, trying to do the same 88 km this week on 6 days of running that I did last week. Isn't that clinging? :)
The run had its strange moments as usual. Mindfulness of steps was pretty good, unwholesome thoughts that did arise quickly faded with some concentration on them and some reference to yesterdays solid thinking. All in all it was a fairly solid mind run. I've already mentioned the physical side.
However, the weirdest thing is the horse poop. I've seen it two days in a row. It is on a major street, Prospekt Permohy, and it is a massive amount of horse poop. Yesterday's horse poop is still there and today there was new horse poop, I am pretty sure that from a health and safety standpoint this can't really be good for the population. However, I guess one must be uncomfortable with uncertainty.
A good start to the week? Or can it all be moment to moment?
