Ugh. I can't even bring myself to do any work today. Just a few more months left...

I think he does about 8-10 a day nonstop. From people I've talked to, his approach is more common. Whatever works though nod[1].gif

That was how I trained for my first: lots of mileage, and I was up to 60 miles/week at one point, and it works.

This time around I was going to do the same, but I'd had to dial it back repeatedly ('08, '10, '11) because I just couldn't bang out the heavier mileage- I ended up running half-marathons. As it turned out I found a training program that gets me through on lower mileage, so I thought - okay, let's try this. Also, I had a friend (a really good marathoner) gently chide me for 'mindless mileage' and challenged me to add a weekly track workout. After I read the same in a really good training book (Run, by Matt Fitzgerald), and saw it in the on-line training plan, I went with it. It's become a staple for me and I'll probably keep at it in the off-season. The science of it - I later found out - goes back to Lydiard who wsa among the first to first advocate massive (100+) base mileage.

Most of the speed sessions are short (20 minutes, give or take), but there are a few that have kept me at or near pace for over an hour, and those were mind-boggling.

Just not those by the Smiths or Morrissey.

Ech. Wife is sick (and worthless).
Baby is sick - getting over two infections (and she HAETS the meds we have to give her) and seems to be catching the wife's thing
Boy isn't bad - yet.
I'm catching something but hope I can mitigate the effects.

goddammit.

I assume this is a given, with or without the illness? laugh.gif

Jesus. I ran like 3 miles yesterday (first time running hard in several years) and my calves were on fire. I'm not capable of the really long runs I used to be. Heh.

Keep at it a couple of weeks, and the soreness will be forgotten. A couple more weeks, and 3 miles will seem easy. It took me two weeks to go from fear and loathing of the track to eager anticipation. Now, I'm not quite addicted but I do get the shakes and become irritable if I miss a track day.

Let's stand here and take up the sidewalk while we compare and contrast our dogs ailments and quirks!!! Weeeeee!" Get the fuck out of the way!

I swear, pet people are worse than parents.

Some of us don't have to trick ourselves. It is entirely possible to enjoy being a parent.

That said, some of us also discipline our children and don't think it's OK to force everyone else in the store to listen to our child's shrieks.

Ugh. I feel your pain. The whole family is in the midst of a nasty cold. LowerCaseG seems to be the least ill, but the wife and I are as sick as we've been for a long time. I missed work yesterday, and it was a triumph of the will for me to make it in at noon today.

As an occasional motorist and cyclist in NYC, I have to say that both groups piss me off. As do pedestrians censored.gif. This is from someone who walks to work every day.

Today I saw a cyclist riding down the right handed side of the one way street (not a good idea unless you LIKE getting doored). Some dumbass pedestrian steps out from behind a big truck to jay-walk while the traffic is mostly stopped. The cyclist misses him by mere inches, thankfully the pedestrian jumped back almost immediately. What happened to look both ways?!?!
