Random Thoughts…because it’s Thursday
I have a 5K this Saturday. I haven’t been running since last Saturday morning. That makes me kind of nervous. Paul says (and I have read this in running books before) that it is better to be under trained and over rested than over trained and under rested. So, yay for being over rested!
After this 5K I only have one other race I am currently signed up for which is another 5K on July 7th. After that I think I am going to run less and bike more. I have the urge to be out on my bike (or on a spin bike) almost daily so I think I will take advantage of the rides that are available to me while I can.
I’m currently reading “Born to Run” by Christopher McDougall. It is an amazing story and I strongly recommend it to anyone. You don’t have to be a runner to enjoy this book. It really is a fascinating story- almost hard to believe it’s true.
I had put a bunch of holds on some new books at the library and wouldn’t you know that four of them came in yesterday. In addition to “Born to Run” I have; “Jeneration X”, “The Skinny Rules”, “Dream New Dreams” and “Domestic Violets”. Guess I better get to reading.
I also checked out a DVD from the library; “Ride the Divide”. It’s a documentary about a bike race from Mexico to Canada. 2700 miles. Very rough conditions and terrain. I am intrigued. We watched “Bicycle Dreams” a few weeks ago, which is about a bike race across the United States, and that movie blew my mind. I expect this one to do the same.
That’s all I got for today. A glimpse inside my mind
Thanks for reading!
