Two Fer Sunday … C25K and more (report)

It is the last Sunday of the month. And I was debating what I was going to do today. I had to get a run in and hit a meeting at the same time. The weather was iffy on the way out. The sky was dark and gloomy, so I packed up my run bag and set out for the Sunday meeting. The thinking was that I would run after the meeting, save for rain.
Today’s meeting was on Tradition 6 …
“An AA group ought never endorse, finance or lend the AA name to any related facility or outside enterprise, lest problems of money, property and prestige divert us from our primary purpose.”
The one idea that comes to mind when I read this tradition is “Singleness of purpose.” In the beginning the founders had their hands full with drunks and getting them sober. And it was thought, long ago that AA could expand to include hospitals, sanitariums and prisons to get people sober. That did not last long as AA consolidated their focus to work directly with the sick and suffering. It had its hands full. Expansion was decided by group conscience, not a good idea.

After the meeting I set off for my run. It was spitting rain, so instead of heading away from home, I was going to run the hill course through upper Westmount, but I did not want to get caught in a rain storm too far from home. Instead I headed for home down De Maisonneuve. I got two intervals in today, my legs were a bit more limber and the pain was not as bad as it has been.
Which means I need to add a full run tomorrow seeing that Monday’s and Tuesday’s are off days. I need to polish stage two before I move on to week three. I am of the mind that I need to be able to run a full week two pod cast before I move on to week three. I may push week three back another week until I can master week two.
More to come, stay tuned …
