Freedom (free from thought prison)
Looking beyond (this illusion)
Disregarding (the ego\’s voice)
Ideas from A Course in Miracles which save my emotional bacon. If I listen to the inner yammering of the ego and it\’s opinion of me, I\’m totally in a mental prison of self hate and fear of others.
This week has been an interesting week in Seabrook with the weather. When I walk out of work at 3 pm in Baytown, the sky is mostly clear and it feels hotter than blazes. At 5:30 in Seabrook, I notice that the sky is mostly cloudy and there is a breeze. Going outside, it doesn\’t feel too bad. So I have had 2 evening long mileage sessions in Brummerhop park this week. Furthermore, I\’m not the only one over there doing laps.
I am in the mood to do a great Friday night workout. But it should be a low impact cross training workout. I think I can. Endurance is endurance regardless of what it consists of.
I do balance exercises standing on one leg on a thick piece of foam and moving around so that balance tries to be upset. I usually want to hurry up and get these done. But, balance cannot be done quickly. There is a conflict between hurry up and balance. How very Zen.
I still want to go to Merrill\’s Mile. I\’m sure \”click submit\” will happen soon. On Sunday, the 3,100 Mile Self Transcendence Race begins for 2012. I can\’t wait for Uptal\’s blog to get started again; so inspirational. Maybe I\’ll start my own self transcendence retreat for the 52 days. An ultra-runner\’s Easter.
