    Good post. Have found what you say to be truly. There is a quote from Henry David Thoreau from one his lesser known books but it is so appropriate here…I can’t quote it exactly but it goes something like this: “We should not always be soothing nature, breaking the horse and ox. But, sometimes ride the horse wild and chase the buffalo.” Without a lot of data collection on my workouts I have found some real joy and a sense of peace with “riding the horse wild,” in my training sometimes. I run mainly on time, not mileage or any other markers. At my age that might be embarassing anyway. I have found that one way to combat diminishing capability in old age, is to do your best to just ignore it. Like the line from a song. “when it’s scary; don’t look down.”
