What if the hokey pokey is really what it's all about???

And all our worrying and planning and plotting is for nothing? Whatever's going to happen is going to happen???

This is not as deep and profound as it sounds. I've spent a couple of weeks trying to fight a descending lethargy and to have it beat me down again and again. The other day I finally gave into it and just let it happen and quit fighting. Well, I think the worst is over. I'm back and I'm ready to really get going again.

I had my marathon training yesterday; it was our LSD. We did 9 miles in 2.5 hours. I have a goal for the marathon and I think I'm ready now to try and achieve it. Yesterday we were going incredibly slow and I was starting to get a little frustrated. Towards the end the side calf muscle on my bad ankle leg was starting to cramp up and I really believe it was due to the unbelieveably slow pace. I realize that the leader of this group is a runner who trained under Bob Bowerman and has been running forever and really knows his stuff but I think with me he's wrong. I want to go just a little faster and he is insisting I go slower. That presents another problem. I really enjoy working with the group and know I won't train properly on my own. Okay, listen to me!!! I've hardly started back to my exercise program and already I'm complaining about how hard I'm working out. How about this, I'll start exercising again this week; I'll train with the group Monday and Wednesday; I'll add another run on Friday night; and I'll do the 30K on Sunday. At that point I'll reevaluate my goals/priorities...

Well, it's time to get moving. I need to walk the dogs, go for a bike ride, and do some strenght/flexibility work. Then I have to run into work for an hour or so and straighten up the computer room here - it's a mess.

Hope everyone has a great weekend in whatever they are doing; marathons, triathlons, whatever..... (sounds like the folks in Kona are having a great time).
