- I have been able to survive on a diet that consists mostly of processed sugar in colorful breakfast cereal form
- MTV hasn’t renamed itself. Seriously, MUSIC?? If that station is about music then my poop should be considered Picasso
- Running is incredibly fickle. Nothing can seem to go right one day but then someone filps a switch and you’re hurdling over piles of dog poop at a 6:00/pace
Two weeks ago, I wasn’t feeling well, I hadn’t hit any “good” speed sessions and my mileage was about 20 miles per week lower than I wanted. But, after the race on Saturday it seems that I’ve been blessed with a series of good runs that would rival an Olympian. I had a pretty good marathon pace run on Tuesday and on Thursday ran 10 miles of track work that averaged a 6:52 pace (details at the bottom if you care) – nearly at my half marathon PR pace. (For that matter, one of the 400s was at a 5:06 pace). So, even though I have a stupid heart rate monitor taped to my chest (note to self, shave portions of chest...) at this moment things are looking pretty damn good.
This week's funny foto friday is a compilation of hilarious facebook postings. (I don't think I have posted any of these before, but I might have) I can only imagine what would have happened if facebook would have existed when I was growing up, but I have to think that about half of these could very well have been seen in my facebook feed. Happy Friday!
I can not WAIT to do this to my kids. CAN NOT WAIT
Ok, I'll admit, I had to look up DTF. Down to [have sexual relations] :)
Ladder track workout was as follows:
400 / 800 / 1200 / 1600 / 1200 / 800 / 400. 400 recovery between.
Both 400s at 5k-15, 800 @ 5k, 1200 @ 5K+10, 1600@5k+20.
Actual paces were: 5:32, 5:39, 6:02, 6:06, 5:58, 5:46, 5:07. Ran that last 400 nearly all out. Man, I wanted that in the 4s......
