New record

with one comment

Down from 10:16 yesterday.

Nothing super new. I took Sunday off. It was gross and rainy, and I felt I’d earned it. I ran 30 minutes yesterday, and again today. Today I ran with J., so that caused me to go faster than usual. It wore me out, but I ended up averaging 10:03 per mile (versus 10:16 the day before), so I guess that’s cool. I’m not really in this for speed – not at this point, anyway, but measurable improvement is neat.

I am wondering how long it will be before the 30 minute run doesn’t seem so tough. I haven’t really been able to experience that whole “running as therapy” thing lately because I’ve been working so hard just to make it through to the end. The mental effects of running are my favorite part, and surely why it’s so addictive.

It hurts now, but one day this will be your warm up.

I hope.

I’m sad because I had to cancel Spotify Premium today. I did the one month free trial, and I would love to continue it, but I just can’t justify the expense right now. The weird thing was that the cancellation confirmation said it would end 4/17. I haven’t been charged, and I don’t see any pending charges in my bank account, so I’m hoping that I’m getting a free bonus month for no particular reason.

I just threw together a new playlist, since I was thinking that I’d better take advantage while it lasts. I think maybe I’m kind of proud of this one, if for no other reason than it makes me giggle.

Wanna hear it? Here it go:
