Did anyone catch the S. Korean golfer that did the Gangham dance?

Nice that he was able to work in the knife-thrust pantomime at the end there.

I wish I could just turn it off completely.
That's one reason running outside is much better (in my opinion, anyway). Not on a track, but point-to-point or out-and-back. Plan to run a roundtrip to and from some landmark that's a bit farther away than the last distance you ran. It's much easier to motivate to keep running when you know that even if you stop you're going to have to hoof it the same distance home regardless. It also makes it easier to extend the run if you're feeling strong -- "I'm almost home, but I'll just turn left here and add a loop around the park."

You crazy. I can run on a track way longer than I can if I'm doing destination running. Maybe that's just because I used to compete in races so quickly got used to it, but I find it helps with pacing etc. a lot.

That could be it, because I did not have that background to draw upon. Plus, I'm inherently lazy and easiy distracted, so I needed to devise a way to trick my brain into acquiescing to what my body could do.

I used to run to various luxury car garages. A good day was if I made it to Bentley or Aston Martin. If I was feeling the burn then I'd cap it of at Ferarri. It made such a huge difference having a goal in mind that I would actually enjoy hitting.

Good for her. Hope she continues to do well.

My niece turns 13 today, so I took the chance to welcome into the teens by texting her 20 embarrassing photos of her as a kid from her grandmothers photo albums. smile.gif

Somehow knowing I'll be dead in 50 years or so is making me happy today.
