I’m one of these people who like to wake up in a peaceful environment. I’ve been in, heard and seen enough in my life to never desire to see, hear or experience more.
I like to wake to a peaceful morning, I like the quite times when its early and most people have not risen from their slumbers. I like to make some coffee and go sit in the front or back of my house taking in the cool, fresh morning air. The peaceful stillness as the day awakes and birds beginning to forage for their morning meal. Sipping hot coffee and just looking.
These past weeks I’ve yet to find this solitude; rather all I get to hear is my neighbors yelling and belittling each other sometime between the unmarried couple, sometimes one or the other adult yelling at the kids, sometimes kids yelling at kids – always though no matter who is on who, the yelling and load voices are rude, belittling and condescending.
I would rather have to listen to the loud speakers blaring “Adhaan” then listen to perpetual squabbling of my neighbors. Seeing how I could go my whole lif without ever hearing Adhaan again that’s saying allot.
So rather then sit outside in the cool morning air drinking my coffee, I sit here in my living room writing a blog entry. And although I can still hear the yelling though the closed double pane windows of house, I am at least insulated from the harshness.
I would have loved to just go running this morning; a trail run would have provided the solitude I need but for the past three days my right leg calf has been really tight. Worse today after my nine mile run last night. No amount of rolling, stretching or rubbing seems to help. My wife massaged it awhile we watched TV yesterday, but I think it need a professional masseuse for it. It’s as hard as a rock and sometimes cramps really bad.
Didn’t really have a good running week;
07/26 – 3.35 miles/5.4Km in 34:23 minutes – 10:16 /mile pace
07/29 – 3.33 miles/5.4Km in 34:12 minutes – 10:16 /mile pace
07/31 – 6.07 miles/9.8Km in 1:05:34 minutes – 10:48 /mile pace
08/01 – 9.04 miles/14.5Km in 1:37:23 minutes – 10:46 /mile pace
I notice my speed really took a hit! I’m over a minute slower since I have started my training for the Disney Dopey Challenge run. Did really poor for the month only did 57.77Miles/93Km I normally get in at least 80Miles/128Km per month.
