Good morning folks, how is everyone doing today? (I don’t know why I bother asking, no one ever answers – do you think if I offered people $10 to tell me how they’re doing, I’d get a better response?).
Anyway, as most of you that read my posts regularly know (Hi Mom!), I am currently training for the Toronto Marathon; my aim is to run in Sub 4, which is roughly 9 minute miles. I will be starting my actual training regimen on January 5th (exactly 4 months before the race), however to prepare for the intense training, I need to keep myself at a good level of fitness. Last night I managed to run 5 miles in 50 minutes, which meant I maintained a 10minute mile pace. I figure if I can get myself up to 10miles, maintaining a 10minute a mile pace, I should be ready for my full on training in Jan!
Have any of you guys ever heard of an App called Transform Your Life; it’s basically 365 tasks that will transform you in to a better person. For those of you that have not read my book reviews, I have been reading a lot of text based around Buddhism, and the process one takes to become a better person. I can’t say I’m looking to be enlightened, but I am looking for a sense of ‘Inner Peace’ that is often found by those that walk the road of Buddha! Anyway (it all got a bit serious for a second) – today’s task is all about helping others, and feeling good whilst doing it.
So, my question to you all, is how often do you help other people? And when/if you do; do you do it reluctantly or do you do it because you feel you should? You lot never get in to a debate, but if you would like to; I would like your thoughts on that – Do you help people because you want to, or because you feel you have to?
Oh, and so far, I poured my colleagues coffee for him – Gotta start somewhere folks!
Have a great day,
