I noticed something different on the walk to work this morning. Big poofy cotton ball clouds had entered the atmosphere and hung completely motionless in the sky. The sun was shining, and the sky was otherwise blue. The clouds, though, they just sat there. No movement whatsoever. I stood at a stoplight and stared up at the sky. Nothing. Stood outside my office building to check once more; still no movement. Cool.
I have never noticed that before. It seems like clouds here are always on the go, kind of like most of the inhabitants of this fair city :)
It was a good reminder...to stop and take it all in; enjoy the scenery. Clearly, even the clouds know to do that :)
That said, we took it all in this morning and knocked out another great T10 with some added spice to make it interesting: 4 miles of hill repeats. I definitely could have worked it a little more, but I was going easy on myself today...after last week's awesome set of runs I'm easing up a bit this week (but not too much ;)). I have to play a head game so as not to get bored with the workout, and so far so good. I break it up into smaller numbers, sets and repetitions and boom, 40 minutes go by like nothing. The run back was too easy, so that's how I know I didn't work hard enough on the hill. Next time.
Geof, on the other hand, made that hill his %$*&# today.
