Running out of steam
At day 42, I'm 14% done... a long ways to go. As far as the running goal itself, I'm nearly 17% done - slightly ahead of schedule, but oh, how quickly that can fall again. So, currently, 416.6 miles to go - 83.4 miles in at a point where I need to be at least 70 in. The problem is, that this is not necessarily feeling like a hobby or even something I necessarily enjoy. I do, but I'm now greeted with pain several times a day. I do enjoy the time to think or to just let my mind wander (I am still listening to music) but we're getting into the rainy season where it gets dark before I start out and I find myself having to run further and further away to find some place interesting that I'm not tired of. With each run clocking in at 45-60 minutes plus shower, something's giving and I suspect it's time reading books.
I might have to take a break after this and maybe work on pushups and situps or something. Maybe also a good reading challenge for myself.
