more thoughts from my thousands of pages of reading:
"the first step to improvement is dissatisfaction with the status quo. yet if one feels dissatisfaction, it must not be diverted into complaining; it must be actively linked to improvement. in this sense, we can say that dissatisfaction is the mother of improvement."
i was feeling good this morning, so i pre-blogged a PM 5-miler. ended up scratching it for one more day on the bike. i found something interesting about my hip and bike-riding yesterday. it pops when i pedal, but i have never noticed it popping when i run. it is not painful; it actually feels really good, like a re-alignment of sorts. that is why i opted for the bike again today.
conquered old main hill twice today. i deliberately planned out an inefficient schedule to ensure i made two trips up the hill. rode up to do some work on campus in the morning then went back up around 3 PM. took the long route home going past first dam and down along canyon road. then i just rode around for awhile through the neighborhoods around merlin olsen park so as not to waste the opportunity to enjoy the precious sunshine. it's all over tomorrow.
just over 10 miles round-trip, so a shorter ride than yesterday but much more intense. run is in the works for tomorrow...
