Be Like Water

Last week i signed up for a half marathon with minimum training. The Sotokoto Half Marathon. They only have the 21k distance and 5k.

When i say minimum i mean that i was a week into training for the annual Stanchart marathon. I’ve been looking for another run to do as opposed to the regular First Lady’s marathon in March and Stanchart in October.

A day later i was wondering what i had gotten myself into. I mean, yes i run regularly but nowhere nearĀ  a half marathon distance, i mean, my long run is 12k.

Anyway best foot forward, some hill runs, yoga and cross training right? Right. Wrong, Mother Nature said.

I have come down with a bout of tonsilitis and a cold. This run is beginning to look like wishful thinking. Of course i hope to get to do the run; i won’t chase time, just do it.

But life is like that. You just deal with the hand you’ve been dealt.

As Bruce Lee said: Water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend.

Be like water

So i will be like water, see how i feel come Sunday and do what i gotta.


Self Love Sunday


Honestly, the simpler stuff is the better our understanding of it will be.
I suppose that’s why they statement: Explain it to me like I was a five year old.
I guess if you can’t them you don’t understand it either.
Life doesn’t have to be as complicated as we make it out to be.
Keep It Simple Stupid – KISS
I suppose international issues like Syria, Pakistan vs India, Palestine vs Israel, bureaucratic red tape, politics as a whole would be rendered mundane and time consuming.
..sigh.. or maybe I’m the one who doesn’t understand why and how things got so tangled up.
I don’t care.
There is always a better simpler way to work things out. Once we really really understand that, there will be a lot more smiles and happiness in the world.
