Update on Hermod work
This goes back to this commitment:
So, the intervening year has had its challenges (to say the least) and I have not trained as well or as quickly as I had planned. I did manage to get up to five miles recently and am still hopeful. What I fear is not being able to run the whole nine miles twice. I have decided, in the end, that whether I run all of it or walk a portion does not ultimately matter. The point is the doing of it. In the story, Hermod rode Sleipnir for 9 days and nights. There were certainly times that Sleipnir did more work than he. Therefore, if I do have to walk a portion, I will. I will just work to run as much as I can and keep singing to Hermod and the others I have agreed to carry.
The rest will come as it does.
Singing seems to help and makes the work more like physical prayer. I find I need that right now.
