1/23/08 jus runnin' . . .

During my first two years of competitive trail running, I took very detailed notes of every run, every cross-training workout, etc. During that time I was living in Brooklyn, NY, so I had my subway ride to Soho to write in my training journal. Having all this information was (and is) very helpful to me. Before a race, I would look back at "the work" and feel assured that I was as ready as I was able to be. However, now I feel less and less the NEED to write everything down. I still time my runs and workouts, and keep tabs on goals . . . I just don't write it all down- nor do I keep each week the same as far as what day is THIS kind of run, or THAT kind of workout. I am jus' runnin'. . . .
I do set lofty goals for myself. Sometimes I hit 'em, and sometimes I am WAY off. I do show up, and I do go for it. That's what I love to do. I am jus' runnin' . . .
