Total 10:15

Great long run on Sunday, best run of the week. Went in well rested from skipping strength workout on Saturday which helped. Wore my fav road shoes, Gazelle CC's as there was a lot of road connecting trail sections. Good weather, lower humidity at around 60% (nice to be able to breathe!) as well as breeze and cloud cover.

Missed yoga this week, but did lots of hip/leg flexibility stuff.

Read an amazing book, Feet in the Clouds by Richard Askwith (thanks for the loan, Keith). It's about the history, characters and current state of British fell running. Askwith tells his own story as well, which I found very inspiring as he discovers new depths of inner strength and level of committment required to meet his ultra running goal.

No idea what I'm training for, but doing what Rainer Maria Rilke suggests: Live the questions now. Perhaps then, without hardly noticing, you will live along some distant day into the answers.

"Live the questions now. Perhaps then, without hardly noticing, you will live along some distant day into the answers."

I love this quote as it is so freeing to know that we can move ahead and carry on even when uncertainty is trying to hold us back.
I often tell myself that it is better to do something, anything then to do nothing at all. This gives me the courage to move ahead into the unknown without the fear of regrets.
