Day 18 8.8 ( 5.62 Miles)
Run Run Run… Last night I finished off the last of some plum wine accompanied by a bowl of sliced mangoes. That led to an interesting dream I’ll save for another time. The weather was cloudy but I still managed to make it out. The goal set was for 5 miles. Rain from the night before caused the waterfall to be super intense. A usually packed water spot was pretty much empty because of the strong current. Fortunately there was a few people there taking photos and what not.
Managed to catch a few behind the scene shots before I took off. Tuning to jazz music has been interesting as well. It keeps me in a nice mental space and gives my run a more cinematic feel. I begin visualizing how I look from all different perspectives.
Day 19 8.9 (4.26 Miles)
Today was going to be a busy day. I felt it coming. There was a guided meditation session I aligned to photograph and video record. It felt awkward driving to a spot I normally run to. It felt like I didn’t have my .7 mile pre warm up run before I made it to the trail. The rocks under my feet felt a little harder than normal typically I’m a mile and a half in and by then my legs and feet are warmed up to the subtle branches and stones I occasionally stepped on. Luckily I did a nice yoga session to start the day so my body was well stretched out and feeling good.
The waterfall meditation session was great! Definitely met really cool down to earth people. Shout out to @Thefallbackup for bringing everyone together for a peaceful vibe. if you are located in Atlanta and would like to join in on the waterfall meditation session find out more information from @TheFallBackUp The session is $5 and is well worth the donation. The session begins with yoga to loosen up heading down to the rocks for the meditation.
Day 20 8.10
REST . BREAK . DREAM
Day 21 8.11
SLEEP. WORKOUT. DREAM MORE ..
I actually did do some running today. A friend of mine came in town and had an idea to shoot a video of me running. Im not sure how it looks but I know I was doing sprints all through the woods jumping over trees and what not. The running segments were a bit inconsistent but Im sure I put up at least 1 mile in short burst. NoplanBFilm.com IG:LifeasDreams
Day 22 8.12 (11.66 Miles)
Today is the day for who knows what! I definitely would like to get a nice run in. Thinking about pushing for double digits. Even though I have not been running, I’ve been active in other ways daily. With that being typed im not sure if Im achilles is warmed up or ready for those limits. Then again a nice run would loosen it up and get it back to normal.
Getting off to a late start but Ive mapped out a route on flat ground to see the difference of running without hills makes. If I require water I will have to run up a hill though and back but that shouldn’t be an issue once or twice. I think im going to end up pushing my limit beyond my expectations! LETS GOOOOOO!!! phone is almost charged up, going to get some yoga in while videos load to dropbox. Everything is flowing as it should.
That was brutal … I really didn’t consider the lack of sleep and little drink i had last night. Felt the resistance kick in around mile 6. Interesting moment .. a guy asked “How many miles are you going for?” I yell about 50 He responds “Whooooo” … 5 minutes later …. who the fk am I kidding, talk about trying to pump myself up I knew I was barely going to make 10miles let alone that x 5. I think I needed to hear myself say it plus I was being sarcastic. I ran into another Deer literally. When i’m in the car and during the night Deers are so majestic to me. When I’m running in broad day light and see one approaching i’m like oh shit this thing is about to chase and trample me, so I just turned around, actually I began to jog backwards to make sure he/she didn’t chase me and returned down the path I came. Ive arrived home to take a cold shower and sit down for a rest. Ive officially dozed off 5 times in 5 minutes. Im going to get a mango and go to sleep for a few hours.
No more mangoes. Time for a trip to the store. Coconuts are needed anyway no rest for the wicked.
