Random post, but I guess I can tie it into HK. About 6 months ago, I wrote a very minimalistic post about running and its beauty. Even though I haven’t been running as much now (2-3 days/wk) as I was then (6 days/wk), I still find the sport to be simple and wonderful.
However, I find that my shoes need replacement since they are a year and ~500 miles old. There are plenty of shoe stores around, but I haven’t been able to score a deal yet. I can’t continue running in these old shoes without risking injury, so it looks like I’ll have to back off running until I get some new shoes. But seeing as how I’m not training for an event, I think I’ll be fine with that. Besides, this summer I would like to train for another 100-mile bike ride, so running would be secondary then, anyway.
Although, looking at the century schedule, I’d only have one chance at doing a century, with only 5 weeks to train~ hmm.
Video related! She has such a beautiful form!
P.S. This post has been sitting as a draft for about 2 weeks now. Maybe time to post?
And just to update: Now that my midterms are finished, I only have one exam and a quiz in April, followed by two papers and one final in May. Ergo….my next 2.5 months will generally be very un-busy with school work.
