New PR ...
I ran this morning first time since being back home and since Thursday. It was cool and I felt great!!! I wore my new Nike+ iPod shoes. They feel so good; it's like walking around on clouds, they are so cushiony. I added a couple of new songs to my workout and between feeling great, cool weather and 'pushy' songs, it was inevitable that I would have to have a good run. And to top it off, I came out with a new PR. I ran 4 miles for 34:58 for a pace of 8:44 per mile!!! My goal this year is to run a consistent speed of less than 9 minutes per mile. I have been able to do this in my races and hope to be able to keep this up with my regular runs.
Blogging Without Obligation
After coming across what seemed to be the 4000th or so post on someone’s blog starting with “I’m sorry I haven’t posted in awhile.” I decided it is time to rethink what makes a good blog and the expectations that have come to be part of it. I am thinking that no one should utter those words again . . .and with that thought I give you Blogging Without Obligation. •Because you shouldn’t have to look at your blog like it is a treadmill. •Because its okay to just say what you have to say. If that makes for a long post, fine. Short post, fine. Frequent post, fine. Infrequent post, fine. •Because its okay to not always be enthralled with the sound of your own typing. •Because sometimes less is more. •Because only blogging when you feel truly inspired keeps up the integrity of your blog. •Because they are probably not going to inscribe your stat, link and comment numbers on your tombstone. •Because for most of us blogging is just a hobby. A way to express yourself and connect with others. You should not have to apologize for lapses in posts. Just take a step back and enjoy life, not everything you do has to be “bloggable”. •Because if you blog without obligation you will naturally keep your blog around longer, because it won’t be a chore. Plus, just think you will be doing your part to eradicate post pollution. One post at a time. . .
