There Is No Finish Line

NSP Community Center indoor track 3.0 mi in 25:36, pace 8:32. The purpose of today’s run was to keep everything working at “peak” level for the Winter Carnival half marathon on Saturday. Pace didn’t matter much, so I relaxed and just picked ‘em up and put ‘em down. That was followed by upper-body resistance training involving seven different exercises, plus some walking. Weight Watchers activity points: 7.5 for running (2.5/mi), 3.5 for resistance (0.5 per two-set exercise), and 1 for walking, total 12 points. I get to eat those, roughly another 600 calories :-)

Splits: 8:39, 8:28, 8:29. Breathing: five footfalls per full breath throughout.
Believe it!Monday Zeke talked about how we run even when there is no specific race or goal in mind. That reminded me of this sign in the Nike store in New York City. It’s not only a statement about running and training, but about life in general. Life goes on. Live one day at a time and make it a masterpiece.
