Feels Good

Finally a long run came together. Great weather, great trails and the running felt good. Despite being well away from the paces I'd really like to be hitting, everything else appears to be on track. Not quite what I'd call a therapeutic but it was a good indicator my body is finally getting back into shape.

At the moment the numbers and science is somewhat distracting, and makes it harder to hit a good mindset about my training. This particular run helped highlight that focusing on the process, the now and the art of running does more than just feel good. The numbers do not mean much if there isn't the rhythm, fluidity or naturalness to my running. There is a big difference between forcing the legs to hit a certain pace versus that pace being the final outcome of getting it right.
