Things I need to re-learn

  1. 30 minutes is worth heading out the door. As a matter of fact, so is 20 minutes.
  2. Not going 5 miles in any given run is a far less egregious sin against Fitness than not going out at all.
  3. <Insert bit of gear here> is not a deal breaker for a run, provided that <gear> is something other than shoes and pants/shorts.
  4. 10 PM is a GREAT bedtime. Even better is 9 PM.
  5. 5 AM is a GREAT time to wake up.
  6. “Consistency is all I ask” sayth the Run (2 Dromeas 5:14)

To those of you still reading – thanks.

I did 4 miles yesterday on the way home from the office. The catch? I did them at the North Kingstown Rail Trail, and I did them fast. Well, fast for the Fall 2006 version of Jank. The total run was 33:20 for 4 miles; but the first mile was under 7:30! It just felt good to twist the throttle a bit. No negative split, but mile 4 was faster than mile 3.

So there’s 3 runs in my log book in the last 5 days, after a long dry spell in the middle of September. I don’t think I’ve lost much in the way of fitness, but I think I need to make sure to follow the advice in Dromeas (Click here to see to what that’s referring).

Oh, and I’m looking for a tagline a la The Penguin’s “Waddle on, Folks”. Suggestions?

  1. Okay, I can’t agree with points 4 and 5 – as a bit of a night owl, the only thing that makes me adhere to (and begrudgingly appreciate) 4 and 5 is if there’s either a skiing or cycling opportunity afoot. Otherwise, fuhgetaboutit.

    But I like the rest of the list. You could even re-tool point 3 for cycling:

    3. is not a deal breaker for a ride, provided that is something other than bike, helmet and pants/shorts.

  2. I am always amazed at all the things I often have to re-learn. Unfortunately, I think having to re-learn them might mean I never really learnt them in the 1st place! hehe. :-)

  3. Re-learning is a good thing. I do it all the time. Tag line? I’m brain dead. No, that’s not it. I’m really brain dead:)

  4. I need to print out that list and memorize it, I think. I’m quickly becoming the queen of the deal-breaker … ie. “Awwww, these aren’t my favourite shorts ….”
