I've Got A Chip
16 easy-paced miles at 8:00/avg on a beautiful crisp sunshiny day in KC ... about 30 degrees with almost no wind ... perfect
Legs feel really strong and conditioning is pretty good especially considering finally coming off of my sickness ... nothing difficult about this run whatsoever
I'm a little "dark" right now ... a little surly ... a little cocky ... a little too sensitive and a little too much of a hair-trigger ... probably not a lot of fun to be around ... & way too competitive ... probably because I feel a little disrespected in a few areas of my life
Most of it's me just being immature & small about a couple of work things ... but the upside to a mood like this is I usually train my butt off and get in really good shape ... and it's beginning to happen through this "Jim being the unpleasant Jim" phase
I use it as energy and think about it when I train ... I tell myself that I KNOW I'm the best at what I do ... that NO ONE can keep the pace .... and I AM THE ONE ... I AM THE FIRE ... I WILL NOT BE STOPPED ... NO ONE ELSE IS IN THIS FREAKING LEAGUE!!!
Of course all of these are just little self-centered mind games I play because I absolutely am not the best and am frequently stopped, lol ... but it provides motivation
Don't get me wrong ... if you meet me, I'll be friendly ... I'm almost always friendly ... but just know I'm simmering, lol
iPod today ... "Stuntin' Like My Daddy" - Lil Wayne
"I'm in my zone, my form is so rare man,
If there's a throne, you're looking at a chairman,
How you want it, show me my opponent .... show me my opponent"
Be the fire.
