I worked with mindfulness and loving friendliness and then contemplated how this was the mind doing something that the rest of the body actually didn't want. I don't know whether it worked, I don't really have an opinion, but I do know that i ran.
This was the uphill for 5k version of the loop. One thing of interest, there was a view of the St. Joseph's onion domes from one fo the streets. I looked at it and said, 'that's beautiful' and then I said, if you renounce opinions and views you just see onion domes and that is all. Interesting.
worked on foot plant mindfulness as well. Taht was fine. Every run of this distance has been within about 25 seconds of all the others for the last 6 or 7 runs, that is certainly consistent (isn't that a view or opinion?).
