Time for LSD

Made you look!  Actually my LSD is Sunday (Long… Slow… Distance…)

I am going to take today off.  I had to re-arrange my schedule a bit when I got hurt last weekend and wanted to test my wheels a bit so I ran 4 days straight and my legs are a little tired.  A day off today and a light run tomorrow should have me ready for my longest run yet of 14 miles on Sunday.

My long runs used to be something I approached with a lot of self doubt and trepidation.  But once I cleared 10 miles, something changed.  Now I look forward to them.  And the longer the run, the more curious I am about it.  I “want” to run big distances.  It’s almost like I am searching for my limits.  I was so surprised that I was able to run again, and then run a little further, and then run a little faster than I ever thought possible, that now I wonder just how far I can go.  I guess it’s a bit of self discovery (kinda late in life… I know…).

    Yeah… but does he not like you because you ran into town in the middle of the night… or because you are nekkid…?
