I'm taking a break from boot camp to work on my running. (and by 'working on' I just mean getting up and running since my running was pretty much non-existent.) I have a goal to run a 10k at the end of September so that's my motivation. And since I'm running without music (broken ipod) a little perk I've noticed is that my mind is experiencing a certain freedom, an expansive breathing space. While running the other morning these words formed themselves in my mind and decided to stay with me like a mantra all the way home.

  1. i've been doing more and more things in silence - such a restorative action for me.

  2. That's a great goal! I am terrible at running or any exercise where I'm not just outside doing something I love (which sadly is not running... I wish it were :))

    Good luck, Lilly

  3. Well done, keep it up! I think it's really hard running without music, but you seem to have a great attitude about it.

  4. i love these words. it's such an incredibly different experience to run without music. it allows for such a deep thinking spot. plus- its always more fun to run a race without music so it's good to start training early!
