Nessa semana, um pouco mais do mesmo. De fato, a rotina dos treinos é um pouco modorrenta para quem lê o Blog. Nesse período de treinamento para a Ultra, a rotina é um dos pontos importantes do jogo que vai ser jogado.
Ninguém espere que o estágio de dor física, cansaço e isolamento seja capaz de construir alguma reflexão existencialista. Pelo menos para mim, correr não é lá muito inspirador....e nem precisa ser.
Eu arrasto o corpo pra cá, arrasto para lá...e assim vou indo.
A única coisa que me vem a cabeça naquele vai e vem eterno nas manhãs de domingo é bastante trivial: o que vou almoçar?
Alguém lembra do Forrest Gump? Sou apaixonado por esse filme.
Forrest: (voice-over) That day, for no particular reason, I decided to go for a little run. So I ran to the end of the road, and when I got there, I thought maybe I'd run to the end of town. And when I got there, I thought maybe I'd just run across Greenbow County. And I figured since I run this far, maybe I'd just run across the great state of Alabama. And that's what I did I ran clear across Alabama. For no particular reason, I just kept on going. I ran clear to the ocean. And when I got there, I figured since I'd gone this far, I might as well turn around, just keep on going. When I got to another ocean, I figured since I've gone this far, I might as well just turn back, keep right on going. When I got tired, I slept. When I got hungry, I ate. When I had to go, you know, I went.
Newsman: Sir, why are you running?
1st Reporter: Why are you running?
2nd Reporter: Are you doing this for world peace?
3rd Reporter: Are you doing this for women's right?
Newsman: Or for the environment?
Reporter: Or for animals?
3rd Reporter: Or for nuclear arms?
Forrest: (voice-over) They just couldn't believe that somebody would do all that running for no particular reason.
2nd Reporter: Why are you doing this?
Forrest: I just felt like running.
Forrest: (voice-over) Anyway, like I was saying, I had a lot of company. My Momma always said you got to put the past behind you before you can move on. And I think that's what my running was all about. I had run for three years, two months, fourteen days, and sixteen hours.
