DAY 6 ......Consistant .... Thanks To My Legs For Co-Operating !
By Adrian Shandley, 16 May 2012 –
4:32 ...... A consistent time that I'm happy with
I woke this morning at 6.45 and looked across the 3 foot gap that separates our beds, there was Cuddles (Jeff) wide awake with those big eyes staring at me! He had that amorous lusting look in his eyes, the sort of look that scares me to my core every day!
So, to avoid his wistful gazing I put my head under the covers….. And what did I see ? (please don’t be rude!)
I actually saw my legs looking at me saying “Is it the same again today ?”
“Yes please if you wouldn’t mind” I said, and so both my legs & I got out of bed as one, with a mutual understanding of each other for the first time in 5 days. They delivered today with a consistent 4:32 which I am happy with for a 6th day marathon.
The sun was out today, the lakes are fantastic, especially when the sun shines, the trees, the flora, the forna, the birds, the wildlife, It takes your mind off the distance, this beautiful planet really is the most fantastic accident of evolution, you really feel at one with it all when you’re out there. When the cars are not around the peace and quiet is astounding.
“Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.”
“You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.”
Best of all I have mentally cracked this course today, any marathon runner will know what I mean when I say that …. I have broken it down, segmented it and I now have it mentally beaten.
“Does running 10 marathons in 10 days get to you ?” I hear you ask
“No” I would say “You just start talking to your legs !”
Marathon 7 is just 12 hours away !
