I think I have a case of reverse-seasonal running blahs. Where seasonal blahs are when it is cloudy and cold, I’m getting them when it is sunny and warm. During my next blog post, I complain about having too much clean running water, how I haven’t started to lose my hair, and how being so attractive is such a burden.
Have you heard of the new social media sensation? It is called
internet porn Google+. It is essentially Google’s version of Facebook. Like I explained it to a friend, “it is essentially like Facebook but without any of your friends”. So, if you’re out there – look me up! Unless we are friends who know my parents, then I’ll probably ignore your request.
I’m toying with the idea of training under the Pfitz 18/70 plan. I know what you’re thinking: “jesus, does everything in running have to be code?” The plan was first developed by Pete Pfitzinger, is 18 weeks long, and peaks at 70 miles per week 5 and 3 weeks before the target marathon. I feel like I’m essentially doing a large part of the plan right now, I’d just need to add a few miles to my mid week long run, add another day of running (from 5 to 6 days a week) and run two times in one day. Easy!! [sarcasm]
This morning I met up with Jeff G to run track. He ran 400s, I ran 800s. I ended up only running 5 of them, but they were all pretty consistent. I was targeting 6:00/pace and was able to knock out: 6:02, 6:07, 6:00, 6:01, 5:38 paces for the half miles. Of course, two things were inevitable: Jeff took a picture of me without my shirt on and I had some bathroom issues. Because I got up so early, I didn’t have a chance to “go” before I left the house. Subsequently, I about “went” during the last 800.
I think that there must be some shadow induced muscle definition here....
Finally, there is STILL time to enter my contest to win up to $100 towards a free pair of Brooks shoes from OnlineShoes.com. Not entering is like putting a $100 bill in a shoe box, buring it in the front yard, telling your greedy neighbor where you burried it, and then moving to another state. Now THAT is ran-dum-berry. (I think?)
