Why do I love you people so much
I don't know much about music, but they claim you lay down the melody first and add the words later. I have the melody part down in my running, but this year it's time to start adding a few words. Getting out the door can be a struggle. A never ending one-on-one match. I have strategies to defeat the life me and life me is a very crafty adversary. We all face this and the more one wants to take on in the running world the more swashbuckling life me becomes. Offering advice here is like offering advice on how to race the last 3 miles of a marathon...you need to climb up into your brain and operate what working parts are left to the best of your ability. Since my 4 week IT holiday: 12/12 = 31:32 12/14 = 1:58:40 12/15 = 1:15 12/16 = 1:00 12/17 = 1:04 12/18 = 1:00:15 12/19 = 51:00 12/21 = 1:31 12/22 = 1:08 12/24 = 1:00 12/25 = 1:14 12/26 = 1:24:30 12/27 = 1:17 12/28 = 1:21:15 12/29 = 1:00:15 12/30 = 1:11:13 12/31 = 1:34:07 Now much of this was through the many versions of snow running we have in Wisconsin. Let's just say it wasn't all "blue skies." The next 6 weeks will be largely the same well clothed fat man lumbering through the woods. When he comes out the other end he better be at least 10 pounds lighter.
