Didn’t beat my 34:01 from last week, but my intention was to have fun with this crushing & see where that lead... I rocked 34:53 (52 seconds slower), yet had way more fun than any other interval runnings over last 8 weeks. Everytime my mind was like “go faster,” I had to ask, “will that be fun?” And the answer was usually nope😜. It was cool cuz I probably could have gone faster, but it would have been out of balance to do that today. You know how there’s your edge, and then there’s crossing your edge in an unhealthy way? That’s what I’m talking about... At first my mind was fixated on “gotta beat 34:01,” and my soul was like “fuck that shit and have fun and see what happens...” Still went fast. And did it connected to my true & vital energy vs letting the will of mind take over and force.
Last week I was engaged in surrender whilst crushing the 34:01, and this week surrender took a different course. That’s why it’s called surrender cuz you can’t control. Gotta let go of outcome.
If I woulda broken my time from last week, I would have done so in a way that was disconnected from my power, and it would have been miserable.
So, these hikes are joyful little ways to remind me to always trust soul. Soul isn’t a high/high or low/low, it’s that place of ease, balance and quiet calm beneath the surface mind. It knows.
It’s Power vs force. Power is always way stronger and more enjoyable even if the outcome isn’t what ego/force wanted... Boom 💥
