run envy

That's what I have - run envy. We were at the track tonight doing drills and then running in zone 1 and zone 2 (how do you differentiate it?) and there was this guy there. He had like no fat on his body anywhere. He was a bit taller than me but not a lot and probably weighed about 30 pounds less than I weigh.

And, he was flying around the track. He made running look easy. He would run fast (not sprinting - just very fast) and then trot around the end of the track and then run fast the rest of the way.

I don't usuallly live with envy. I choose not to wish things were different than they are. It's not healthy for me to dwell on how things could be or might be or could have been or might be.

But, gosh, I sure do wish I could run faster. I wish I could run with as much ease as this guy. He was great to watch because he was so fluid in his movement. Running was totally his thing. It was cool.

I love to run. I really do. It's just that sometimes it's hard. I wouldn't mind if running was easy every now and then.

Oh well.

Happy Friday.


  1. That was me, and I'm sorry I made you feel that way, sister!

    If it's any consolation to you, even though I'm fast and have this killer bod, I suck in bed.

    No, that's not true! I can't lie to you sister - I'm also a stud!

    But I am sorry I made you feel bad about yourself. Not everyone can be me.

    Just do your best.

    Well, time for me to go run then have some studly sex.

    Take care, sister!

  2. I didn't know you were at the track workout with me last night? oh damn. glaven beat me to that joke. he needs a good meat punch.

    i've found that with a little patience, a good plan, and the right nutrition you will become faster. I'm using a FIRST running plan, tons of biking, and the Tri Power strength workouts and last night i amazed myself at how fast and long i was able to run during a brick!

  3. You're not the only one with Run envy. Just watching 'those people' run is awe inspiring. They make it look so easy.
    Based on John and Glaven's comments, it sounds like you're surrounded by Hunks!

    Keep it a secret or all the ladies will be moving to NC
