There is a reason for the flower picture - it shows decay.
Most of my other picture have shown plants developing and then coming into to bloom - at the height of their powers, if you will. But this one shows that things do not last, they wither and then are gone.
Just like my ability to run. I am not sure if it ever came into to full flower but now everything seems to have gone. All my powers have withered.
I ran for less than 2 miles but felt desperate all the time. "End it! End it!" my brain was screaming. Part of my conscious mind was saying "No the schedule says 5 miles we must go on" but the other half was saying "Oh what is the point. What is the point!"
There was no point. Going 5 miles would not have achieved anything, The 1.75 miles I ran achieved nothing. I crawled home and felt whipped.
What had happened? where had all my strength gone?
The rest of the day was spent in a fog of unknowing.
