I woke up early and ran this morning. I have exactly one week until my next triathlon and I am not prepared. I do have to say that after hiking in the high altitude of Peru I find it easier to run without breathing heavy and in a sense I think this may have increased my endurance. My breathing, which normally just falls into its own pattern as I hit my groove, seems to be just a bit off...a little less deep and a little less rapid. This in turn is throwing off my running cadence. Its interesting to observe these little effects in my body.
I wish I could experience a little bit of spiritual altitude also! It would make my day to day prayer life just a bit more doable...I think...well, maybe... only God really knows.
