    Sigh.

      Sigh.

       I guess arguing with Trent might make one a bigger looser than running the monkey.

        A Dance with Monkeys

          My two day meeting looks to be ending early. So my work here is done. Thank y'all for the entertainment.

            I agree that overthinking can be a bad thing.  I got the impression that part the cheating was the not enjoying part or running easy, too hardly.

             

            I know I’m supposed to have an easy day but if I push it today I’ll get in even better shape. What do 30 seconds per mile matter. Right?

             

            Agreed.  He understands not to push too much physically everyday.  It's his statement about mentally focusing on "things that will help on race day" during everyday runs that I have a problem with.  I take "everyday" runs to mean your easy or recovery days.  Those should be recovery days for you physically and mentally. Of course, I don't know what he means by "things that will help on race day", so I could be way off.

            There was a point in my life when I ran. Now, I just run.

             

            Well, fuckers

                But the article is about running. Not training. The word "train" appears only once in the entire article, and that towards the bottom.

                 

                We think that we can just become mentally tough on race day. I mean come on, why waste time on those everyday runs to bog the mind down with focusing on things that might help us on race day…

                 

                You are cheating yourself out of truly training to put everything on the line on race day. 

                 

                Stop cheating yourself. Only when you do that will you be the best you can be as an athlete.

                Clearly the author is talking about just jogging around for fun and not about training for racing.

                  I have also stopped my watch while pooping in the woods.

                    I don't stop my watch, but I will record a special split time for Woods Poop.  I keep a big chart of poop times.  I hope to create an 'experiment' somewhat like the dude's lightweight shoe experiment.  The effect of lighter weight ("I just lost a couple pounds the hard way") on times.

                     

                     

                    I thought having a flying monkey tear your arm off was the hard way to loose a few pounds.

                      I do not approve, despite the alliteration.

                        Will the result of your experiment be a 18-weeks poop training program?

                          FWIW, I think about form or cadence or posture on every run, the great majority of which are easy or recovery outings.  Not every moment of every run, but I'd say I check in on myself "nearly constantly".  I like it, I get satisfaction from seeing and feeling my form improve, and it doesn't wear me out mentally.  I get lots of enjoyment from my running, and I very rarely have any motivation issues.
