this evening’s thoughts for a mellow year

I went for a short run this evening. That’s all I’ve been doing so far this year – just a few three-milers. It’s actually a pretty nice distance. It gets all the blood flowing nicely enough to get a good stretch in afterward and doesn’t take a huge bite out of the day. And it doesn’t make you hungry like the wolf.

I think I’ll try to do more short runs this year. And less middle distance runs (7-9). And more long runs (12 or more).

I’m not aiming to break any records this year. Not yet at least. I’m sure I’ll start to get competitive with myself around halfway through the year. Until then I’m hoping to just have some enjoyable runs and rides – follow a few paths, see where they lead…
