Yesterday I began vacation for 10 days. The whole plan is to sleep run and eat; with a few chores and pay a few bills.
Each day begins with a long period of spiritual reading and meditation. Each day ends with a repeat of spiritual reading and meditation.
Yesterday I had a wonderful sunny run on trails, 13.2 miles. But my legs were a bit tired still from last week's race. I also rode my elliptical for 40 mins and did 100 crunches.
Today, it was raining earlier in the morning. So I did a fast 55 min run on roads, getting drenched at the end, 4.8 miles. Then after an AA meeting, I went back out for some slow miles. It was not raining and still quite warm. I got in 10.8 miles. Faster than yesterday and my legs felt fine. I plan to do some trx work later.
Yesterday, a woman asked me what I was training for. Really, nothing. The miles are good for me mentally. I love strapping on my Nathan hydro-pak and just spending time doing miles.
The state of my life is a good topic for me during these days of vacation. Actually, since I am a solitary, I contemplate my life. I look for patterns in the spirituality. At this time, my outer world cannot ask for more. At work, I was recently promoted into the top position I would ever desire to attain: Subject Matter Expert. Money is fine. House is fine. Houston is fine.
So again, I turn inward to spirit and ask for knowledge, relationship and truth.
Today while I was running, I was able to get the feeling that everything is love. Thanks Spirit for letting me know this.
