Reflections on the Grind

thoughts on training and life of an introvert

Bounce

leave a comment »

On a bounce from cold. Though ill for a good part of the month, I managed to get a good mileage in. Finally got in a long run last Sunday. Struggled mightily. Happy I did it though. Pain will make me stronger, once my body recovers, hopefully. Falling down and getting back up is what life is about.

Numbers of days off: 43 in 2009 and 17 in 2010. Two days off so far in 2011.

Haile Gebrselassie and I are training for the same race. That’s pretty cool.

A change in routine: I have stopped logging my runs at Dailymile. Though my two years there were great and opened my eyes to a wonderful world of runners, I think it’s time to move on.

Sports news of interest:

  • Fernando Torres to Chelsea. What a shocking trade. But Liverpool has been in poor form for a long time. It’s understandable that a player of his caliber would want to play for a better team. Meanwhile, Liverpool got Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll to replace Torres. So, I think they will do just fine.
  • Barcelona is playing superbly. Now 7 points over Real Madrid. Hard to believe that they are doing even better than they were last season.
