9.8 miles this morning below an 8:30 pace. I had three 2 mile intervals below 7:30. I usually run around 4:45 a.m. but I didn't have to be to work as early today so I started about 2 hours later than normal. The temps were still in the 50s with no humidity and I was able to wake up a bit more before actually running and it seemed to make a huge difference.
7.2 miles on Saturday morning and 14.2 on Sunday. Today was a rest day but the great running weather that we've had lately is still here and I was really tempted to go out for a few miles this morning, but I resisted and went for an easy walk instead.I agree with jbarwick - I don't think a few extra days of rest will be detrimental, especially this close to the actual event.
I'm the reverse. I generally prefer going to festivals alone so that I don't worry about trying to accommodate others and what they want to see. Between 2003 and 2009, I made it to just about every Bonnaroo, Coachella, ACL, Lollapolooza, and Pitchfork and went solo and with friends and always enjoyed the solo trips more.Wait... maybe that just doesn't speak well of my choice of friends?
16 years after releasing one of my favorite albums ever, Neutral Milk Hotel finally came to Detroit this week and I was able to go see them last night. One of the best concerts I've ever seen (right up there with lead singer Jeff Mangum's solo show I saw last winter). Photos and recordings were strictly prohibited so I have to settle for this video from a couple weeks ago on the same tour:
I used up my discount from the chambray Doyle pre-order on the steel blue tweed sportcoat and now fall cannot arrive fast enough.
I'd love to see some trousers offered in the same fabrics, preferably in the Rudy fit...
