My run early this morning was great! My goal was to do a slow, calorie-burning run. So I donned my iPod and began my listening with the songs I have set up for a half marathon...slower paced. It worked great. I am so influenced by the beats and rhythms of songs as I seem to run accordingly. Most every run is followed by an abdominal, weights, core and floor workout. This week I had a total of 22.5 miles clocked. The following shows the day, miles run, time of run, pace per mile and comments. [Hope you can read it, I'm struggling and I wrote it!]
Mon...3.5 mi...35:24 min...10:06 pace...Right hip still sore
Tue...4 mi.....39:51 min....9:57 pace...Hip better
Wed...4 mi.....37:13 min....9:18 pace...No pain!
Thu...5 mi.....46:37 min....9:19 pace...Two days with no pain!
Fri...6 mi...1:00:00 hr....10:00 pace...Slow, calorie-burning run

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. . .
