We did testing today. Apparently I can still run a mile and a half in 12:48, which is around 8.5 minutes a mile. I'm guessing that'll drop to 'round about what my sustained running rate used to be, about ten minutes a mile. I had some weird emotional baggage around that figure once, which would take some explaining. That's down to a weird small twitch now. Do you ever have those little emotional reactions that you want to drown like kittens?
I don't always like my competitive urges. Sometimes I wish they'd just go away and leave me alone. Of course, I'd hate it a lot more if they actually did.
Things are wedging in the back of my mind in a way that suggests that it's time to reevaluate my life goals again. That would explain a lot, looking back at the last few months. There are certain kinds of awkwardness that just don't usually happen to me. I replace them with other kinds of awkwardness :-)
