7 miles after a work meeting. 55F. Stayed on the flats, mostly. Felt good.
14.0 miles today, about half on trails. Felt good. Perfect running weather: sunny, T ranged from 35-45F, no wind.
7.3 miles, after 5 hours of sleep and last night polishing off a bottle of Glenlivet 21 with some friends for a birthday.
I went with the Glenlivet 21. The recipient was really impressed, and I was also impressed. I have the Balvenie 21 which I prefer but this is much cheaper and well worth it. Too bad it went so quickly! Then we switched to Knob Creek and now I'm hurting...
Yeah, well, I think I'm looking for the impressive/widely appealing demographic. So not some old Laphroig. There's a 21 yr Glenlivet that looks interesting for about $120.
I've been drinking scotch for awhile but have been tasked with bringing a bottle to a friend's birthday party tonight. The budget is $100 and it has to be fairly universally enjoyed, nothing too extreme. There's a Balvenie 12 single barrel for $80, but I'm thinking about the Glenlivet Nadurra 16 for $80. Any thoughts or alternatives to consider? These are people who probably would rather have a Johnny Walker Blue, so in terms of being impressive it probably needs to be...
It was my 4th all time, but really only 2nd in the last 10 years, with the first one being last spring. Maybe it was posture, maybe it was just that overall I need to have more training. I really like how the longer runs are more enjoyable now.
I did the half-marathon yesterday. It went great. My knee felt fine, I took it easy on the pace. Slightly sore today (neck and shoulders, maybe I'm doing something wrong with my posture?).
Yeah, well, I agree, I'm not going to use the new shoes, I'm going to run slow, and if there's any pain I'll just stop. So, it's an opportunity to do a longish run with no pressure. I'll be happy if I get to mile 8 or so.
Turns out I didn't have an MCL problem, just a muscle sprain, took a week off, then got sick for 4 days, but this week was back into it with a few 3-6 mile runs and everything feels fine. I'm signed up for a 1/2 marathon this weekend which I think I'll try, and if I have any pain I'll bail. Relieved it wasn't anything worse, but still want to be cautious. My new shoes arrived today, I was using the Mizuno Wave Alchemy for many years, one model after another, but it was...
