Today was one of those days where we started out with the good intentions to run L.S.D. and ran intervals instead.
You know, where you're running at a pretty solid pace, and you spy a group of runners ahead. So you suck it up and push a little bit harder, you run a little bit taller, you swing your arms, you check your form, you make sure your pace is SOLID and when you pass those runners you say a strong, "Good Morning."
Vanity over rules good sense.
The best is that in the area we run in there are runners all over the place. Vanity sprints become more like interval repeats. "Good Morning". Head nod. Making sure that the impression of, "I've been doing this for miles and miles and I could do it for miles longer" is thoroughly passed along.
That's how we got through our run today.
Nod of the head, smile, pick it up, crush the hill, fly down the roads, and maybe even toss in a little wave...
or, maybe not...
... all depends on if we can pull it off without looking tired.
~savor the run~
