i guess i should start using titles again

hey guys-- i just had a great run!

eat like a runner
train like a runner
Feel Like a Runner!

it was only 3.3 miles mind you but i haven't felt that great on a run in some time.

i managed to eat clean for 2 consecutive days (counting today); i have been having trouble with that part of the equation. i ate clean for 2 days and then i had a run where i felt pretty great. coincidence? no way. i didn't eat like a mouse, but i threw in vegetables and fruit. clean protein, and limited the bread type stuff. probably 1500-1800 calories on average between today and yesterday. something to build on.

if you are having trouble eating clean like i am, try doing it for just 2 days. thats it, just try it for 2 days. then go do your run (or walk, or elliptical, or..). you will notice a difference! it will feel like a breath of fresh air.

here is my run...3.3 miles in under 30 minutes. pretty sweet!

----------------------------------------
i don't plan on carrying on at that pace all the time but it sure felt great tonight. i could have kept going for sure. this week's running plan is: 3, 3, 3, 6. let's see if i can come through.

one of the things i read every morning is a quote that i got from 'zeke' several weeks ago. well, he quoted it from somewhere else but anyway, i like it:

---Don’t limit yourself in any way. Let go of the past. Get off your beliefs. Give yourself the space to become everything that you are capable of being. You are the only one that can fulfill your imagined potential.---

i hate to repeat a quote that has already been quoted zeke but it has really helped my mental attitude lately so i thought i would share it again just in case somebody didn't see it at zeke's place. i like the part about letting go of the past and focusing on what you are capable of, right here and now. today.

ps my favorite running song in tonight's mix was Miami by Will Smith. hehe.

  • that reminds me of my favorite emerson quote:

    "Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense."
    -- Ralph Waldo Emerson
