Have you ever noticed how quickly you can spend 60 minutes? Television, surfing the net, sitting around...
One of the interesting things about the Method is that it has really helped me appreciate time. 45 second intervals can last forever...In a strange way, I'm using athletics to help me appreciate that the QUALITY of the time we have is as important as the QUANTITY.
While there is nothing inherently wrong about taking a lazy day...I think the real question that I'm learning to ask myself is "am I actually living in the minute or just letting it pass?"
I don't have anything profound to say at the moment. However, I can say that I'll be paying more attention to living in the moment in my upcoming training. For me, that will be reflected by decreased dependence on "outside" stimulation such as T.V. during trainer workouts and my iPod during runs. These items have their place, but I want to take some time to get to know my own body for a while.
