I just tried meditating. I took advice from a Yoda pin on Pinterest.
I set my timer. And it lasted 5 min 43 sec. I never thought I would be one to be able to meditate. Mainly because my mind is constantly thinking of something. But it’s something that I want to try to bring more peace into my life. I tried really had to focus on my breath and imagine the inhale as ocean waves sweeping back and the exhale as the waves crashing into the shore. When I started to lose focus I started to count my breaths, 5 in, 5 out. My breathing started to get deep and my head started to feel light and airy. Maybe I will try this in the morning sometime, and I’ll try to look further into it besides a “Color Me Yoda” guide to meditation.
Before training today I did a quick little treadmill workout while watching The Town.
1 mile warm-up at 7.5 mph (8:00 pace)
1 mile at 8.5 mph (7:00 pace)
0.5 mile at 9.0 mph (6:40 pace)
If I had more time, I thought this might be a little circuit that I could repeat. It would be nice to push it hard and then recover back at a slower pace and build it up again.
Have you ever tried meditating? How do you feel about treadmills?
