Only getting one run in this week, but as I have a race on Sunday we can say I am tappering. Sounds good to me! As long as I get my planned mileage in for the month I am happy.
It’s a definite spring day here in Grenoble with sunshine, chirping birds, blue skies and trees beginning to blossom. I hope we don’t get a sudden cold snap or we will lose a lot early spring fruit; especially worried about cherries as there is a big tree in the yard that I would really love to help myself to this year!
Again with the dumb 60″ glitch. The pace is 6’00” lol I don’t get it.
Little race this Sunday and half marathon next Sunday I just hope the beautiful weather holds!
A poem for today. 😊
Just Walking Around
by John Ashbery
What name do I have for you?
Certainly there is not name for you
In the sense that the stars have names
That somehow fit them. Just walking around,
An object of curiosity to some,
But you are too preoccupied
By the secret smudge in the back of your soul
To say much and wander around,
Smiling to yourself and others.
It gets to be kind of lonely
But at the same time off-putting.
Counterproductive, as you realize once again
That the longest way is the most efficient way,
The one that looped among islands, and
You always seemed to be traveling in a circle.
And now that the end is near
The segments of the trip swing open like an orange.
There is light in there and mystery and food.
Come see it.
Come not for me but it.
But if I am still there, grant that we may see each other.
