I love it when my runs get up to 40 minutes, because about 22, 23 minutes in, my body goes, “Oh, yeaaah!” This does not happen to me during shorter runs. Your results may vary.
I have not said much about my plan to run in the Virtual Boilermaker 15K for the simple reason that I do not have a plan. I don’t know how to make a plan for that sort of thing! The only virtual run I have done so far was a 5K sponsored by Rock City Runners to benefit the Little Falls Food Pantry (perhaps you read my blog post about it). I am thinking a 15K will be at least proportionally more complicated, if not moreso (why is my Tablet underlining “moreso”? That’s a word, isn’t it? ).
Be all that as it may, I have been running incrementally longer runs (or do I mean increasingly? Am I being unnecessarily verbose? Say it ain’t so!). I thought it might be nice to make more Running Commentary Posts. Unfortunately, I make my best Running Commentaries soon after the run. Yes, I ran this morning, but I just don’t remember all that much about it.
What does that say about me? Nothing good, I suppose. Then again, why should I go out of my way to say good things about me? Readers will think I have a tremendous ego. Yet again, I have long maintained that there are worse things than having an ego the size of Manhattan.
Well, that is enough of that circular argument. But it gives me an idea: I am going to call this a Monday Mental Meanderings, hit Publish, and drive on. I hope I can go running again tomorrow.
