Solar Eclipse

If you did the 30 x 100, how did it go for you??  It was 'okay' for me.  The Hamilton College pool is very warm, and my turns sucked. I was able to maintain 1:16 with no problem.  I think I was in a groove with 5 left.  Ha!

Snowing again today. Central NY is not the place to be if you are expecting to see green grass or any grass for that matter by spring time. Sure, we get a day or two of nice sunshine and 40 degree weather, but it never lasts.

I guess I don't miss running in the nasty snowy 30 degree weather - but my neighbor seems to be a dye-hard runner!

Every so often I open up my little book called: A Thousand Paths to Enlightenment, by David Baird, hoping to get a little insight as to what is happening in my life.   A while ago I read a book called   Comprehending Coincidence: Synchronicity and Personal Transformation, by Craig Bell. It's a very interesting book which delves into dreams, symbolism, gurus, conscience and subconscious.  Reading a passage from the enlightenment book gives me a conscience perspective to life.  Today's readings was something I wanted to share because it pertains to career and major changes. Given that fact that we are packing our house up to move to FL and I am changing careers, the quotes were fitting.

"Take your work seriously, but never yourself."

"There are two kinds of people, those who do the work and those who take the credit. In the first group there is far less competition."

"Increased stress is the price you pay for increase opportunity."

"Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't."

Saturday practice will be drills and sprints. Sunday practice will be 5,100 yards of free and IM, in honor of turning 51!   Workouts posted soon!

Happy Laps!
