Few weeks ago, I saw this magazine and found it very inspiring…=) Is it lonely UP THERE???
Feb 26, 2012 I joined another Run. U Run.
heheh…i joined another run and in the process, I conducted a very personal experiment. Objective was, to be able to know the difference between running with my head straight, vision focused on the people ahead of me and running with vision fixed to the ground. This comparison came to mind because upon reviewing my pictures from my previous races, I realized that in all my photos, I wasn’t really looking ahead or in front.
In this experiment, I felt that the main difference was, I got tired faster when my vision was focused on people ahead of me. Hmmm, I was thinking to myself, was it because aside from the physical fatigue I was feeling, I was also very worried and I kept on comparing my own performance with others’? Maybe. I also experienced pain on my right leg at 9.5km mark. Was it because I also didn’t train for this run or because, as much as I hate to admit, I have aged a little bit? Hmmmmmm…….
Anyway, if it was because of the first reason, here’s a line from Desiderata to remind us about comparing ourselves to others, “If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.”
Can’t believe I already joined 7 races!
Its the time of the year! Buchok needed to be dissected..I saved $530..Where can this take me?????
