Since I’m feeling human, I went for a quick shake-out run this morning. Regrettably, the only thing that was “shook out” was my colon. So, 2.5 mile run, 0.5 mile duck walk. Whatever, I’ll take it.

I've been sent a VITABand to review that will be coming up shortly. It is a bracelet that is a combination of a medical ID and a speed-pass credit card. Which, successfully combines my two favorite things: Not dying and not wasting time by being forced to sign or punch in numbers. Look for the review VERY shortly.
Finally, I've had more than one question asking how I liked my high mileage marathon training plan. In short: If anything, I liked that it gave me the mental confidence to continue to push further, faster. Running a mid week 15 miler really goes to show you that running 26 miles isn't ALL that much further. So, I'll likely do something very similar for my next "key" race in January. I'm going to try to get at least one 75 mile week in but am going to do a bit more marathon-pace work. I didn't like that I only had a few sessions with that in there. With 9 weeks before the race it'll be a stretch, but I'm willing to do it. But, if I run my legs clean off, I"m going to try strapping a rocket engine to my ass and seeing if it will propel me to a sub 3:05. Any word if rocket-ass engines are USATF legal?
