"Beware the fury of a patient man"
I've been thinking about my last post and for some reason this quote came to mind. The quote is from John Dryden, I believe. I confess I don't know the full context, and fury is not a word I generally apply to myself, but I think this quote is applicable to running. Like many Americans, I often want things to be quick and easy. Running isn't like that, is it? Building up a base of endurance requires time and patience. One building block at a time, no shortcuts.
